The Doc Holliday Museum

The Doc Holliday Museum is the first satellite museum for the Glenwood Springs Historical Society. The society’s parent location, the Frontier Museum, is located at 1001 Colorado Avenue. Needing extra room to tell the story of Doc’s Life, Legend and Lore, the museum partnered with Bullock’s Store to open a second location in the heart of downtown Glenwood Springs at 732 Grand Avenue. This particular location has great meaning because, in 1887 Doc died in the ornate Hotel Glenwood which once rose out of that very spot.

Glenwood Springs Rafting & Kayaking

Rafting in Glenwood Springs is one of the town’s top summertime activities. The Colorado River as it travels though Glenwood Canyon is among the state’s most spectacular and dramatic settings for a river rafting trip. Bound by cliffs on either side, the river tumbles and glides its way through the canyon to Glenwood Springs. Along the way, rafters are in for an exciting ride. Highlights include paddling Class IV and V rapids, stopping at riverside hot springs and floating the flats where there are plenty of places to swim and splash.
