It's been a rough year for a number of small towns spread around Colorado after COVID-19 complications and a round of major wildfires have had serious impacts on tourism for a months-long stretch. One town known for their hot springs is offering visitors an incentive in hopes of turning things around.
Glenwood Springs has announced that they'll be awarding $100 in "community currency" to the first 1,000 people that book a qualifying stay in their town through November 30.
Dubbed "Glenwood Gold," the community currency certificates work like cash, with the town reimbursing business accepting the payment 100 percent of the face value. A long list of local businesses are already involved in the program.
In order to qualify, visitors must book a minimum 2-night stay at a Glenwood Springs lodging property now through November 30. Booking through 3rd party websites, such as Booking.com or Kayak.com, does not count. After booking a qualifying stay, an online form allows individuals to claim their reward.
Located along I-70, Glenwood Springs is a paradise to those that love outdoor recreation. It's home to many hiking trails, multiple hot springs, and found along the Roaring Fork River. It's a must-visit bucket list location.
