Glenwood Springs is an amazing town in Colorado. It sits in a valley in the Rocky Mountains and is famous for it's natural hot springs and adventure park. There is a shopping center that fits everyone's needs, as well as many small, warm, private ran stores that have lots of unique gifts. Both the public schools and community college here are well renown. Glenwood Springs is also home to one of the best hospitals in Colorado, Valley View.
I have lived in Glenwood Springs for almost four years, and I love it here! The community is great and the scenery is beyond beautiful.
