Hot Springs Pools and Spas

To Native Americans, hot springs were sacred places. To today’s active, harried humans, hot springs are slices of heaven where you rejuvenate the body in soothing, naturally mineral-rich waters.

We are directly across the street from the  Historic Salida Hot Springs Aquatic Center, a family-friendly public indoor facility with an indoor swimming pool, wading pool, private hot tubs, public tennis courts, volleyball and basketball courts, as well as an outdoor fitness circuit. They also have a children’s playground and covered picnic facilities.

Not far away from Salida, you can find open-air creekside facilities at Mount Princeton Hot Springs Resort outside Nathrop and Cottonwood Hot Springs Inn and Spa just west of Buena Vista. A little further away, but absolutely worth it, is Joyful Journey in the San Luis Valley.

Split Happens in town is a fun place to spend an afternoon or evening. It is a popular Bowling Alley that has served the community since 1961. There's a full service bar and lounge, a jukebox and a pool table and of course, lots of bowling. As one customer said, “It's like stepping back into 1992 in a great, great way”.
