Soak up the Springs
One of the more famous attractions found in Glenwood are the natural hot springs that bubble up, offering pampering and relaxation to those who soak in the soothing nectar of the springs. While this may sound quite alluring to adults, there are plenty of fun options for young children to enjoy as well. If soaking in the springs is not your kid’s cup of tea, then fear not, as there is a freshwater family pool for everyone to enjoy. Why not book a Swim and Stay package, where you will be able to enjoy lodging that meets your family’s needs, as well as your budget.
For those looking to stretch your legs, why not take a hike? Not any ordinary hike though, but one that has the bonus of an opportunity to see if you can spot a ghost! The famed Doc Holliday was laid to rest within the Linwood Cemetery, which is a quick half-mile hike. If you have little ones, make sure to keep an eye on them, as there are some areas on the hike that can be a little dangerous for toddlers. If you are also bringing a four-legged family member, they are welcome, but they must be on a leash at all times while hiking for their safety and the comfort of fellow hikers. However, Doc Holliday is not the only famous person to call Linwood Cemetery home, as you will also find the grave of Harvey “Kid Curry” Logan, who rode with Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid’s Wild Bunch Gang during the late 1800s.
