Trip Report Glenwood Springs, CO Trip Report

Jump to last reply

We (me, my husband and two kids) recently returned from a four-day trip to Glenwood Springs. We are trying to visit a new place in Colorado every summer and this year's trip was a success! I would definitely suggest Glenwood Springs if you are interested in the outdoors, spectacular scenery, and adventures. There are better choices if you are interested in shopping, enjoying downtown, or restaurants.

We stayed at the Hampton Inn and it was a good choice. A good breakfast was included in the room rate, it had an indoor pool, a fridge, and was clean and spacious. Also, free parking and little treats like warm chocolate chip cookies and cold ice water in the lobby.

Adventures - We loved hiking Hanging Lake and the Grizzly Creek Trail. These were two spectacular, breathtaking hikes. I cannot say enough about them. We also did the hot springs and Adventure Park (cave tours). We walked Horseshoe Pass and saw Doc Holliday's Grave. Unbelievable scenery...we loved Glenwood Canyon!

Restaurants - We ate at Chomps Deli (right next to the hotel), Italian Underground, Glenwood Springs Brew Pub, Slope and Hatch, and got takeout from Zheng China Bistro. The food was decent, not exceptional. We would not go back to Chomps, and Zheng's was a pleasant surprise. We really enjoyed Slope and Hatch and kids eat free on Mondays and Tuesdays. The menu here is tacos and hot dogs, but not traditional tacos. My husband had gyro tacos, while I had jerk chicken with slaw and a pineapple/jalepeno salsa. Spicy, but fresh and innovative flavors. Italian Underground was pretty good with neat atmosphere and friendly staff. We thought everything was pretty pricey for what you got. Sweet Adventures was a good candy/ice cream shop.

We enjoyed Glenwood Springs, particularly the beauty of the area. As a whole, we enjoyed Steamboat Springs more for all that it had to offer for a family. However, the hiking and scenery makes Glenwood Springs a really nice destination!
