10 Jan Iron Mountain Joins Hot Springs of America
Hot Springs of America is an innovative, new website that seeks to connect people with the nation’s thermal water resources. Colorado’s Iron Mountain Hot Springs is one of its newest members.
In an effort to help wellness seekers, hot spring aficionados and vacation planners, the newly formed Hot Springs of America is the first website of its kind to list and map every commercial hot spring in the United States. The site is also becoming a go-to forum for all things related to geothermal soaking.
Learn About U.S. Hot Springs in One Place
The creators of Hot Springs of America have a passion for thermal springs. To make hot springs destinations easier to find, the website offers a single, centralized location with information about all of them. Extensive research was required to identify and map every hot springs facility in the country. In addition to featuring destinations and resorts, HotSpringsofAmerica.com also hosts a blog and a newsletter is forthcoming. Recent stories have included useful tips on the history of thermal baths and how to tap into the health benefits of these mineral-rich waters.
Iron Mountain Hot Springs is on the Map
“We were quick to sign on with Hot Springs of America,” Iron Mountain Hot Springs Sales and Marketing Manager Heather Austin said. “We want people from all over the country and the world to be able to find us so they can enjoy the relaxing, rejuvenating experience of soaking at Iron Mountain Hot Springs.”
In addition to a geo-locater map, listings on the Hot Springs of America website feature easy-to-identify icons that show Iron Mountain Hot Springs offers food service, alcoholic beverages and is family-friendly. A link to the Iron Mountain’s website and a downloadable brochure are available, as well as a 2-minute video of the resort experience.
“Visitors can get a good idea of what we have to offer and they can compare it with other available options as they are making their vacation plans,” said Austin. “We want our guests to be happy. Having more information easily available helps to ensure visitors have the experience they are seeking.”
Each Hot Spring is a Unique Experience
According to Hot Springs of America, “Thermal springs, wherever they occur, are special. Each one is a unique, naturally occurring phenomenon.” Part of what makes Iron Mountain Hot Springs stand out is its location on a bank of the Colorado River surrounded by majestic mountains. The geothermal water fills 16 soaking pools and contains 14 health-boosting minerals. Temperatures vary from 99°F to 109 °F. In addition to the soaking pools, a freshwater family is ideal for cooling off or playing with children. In summer, outdoor showers offer another refreshing respite from the heat. An on-site restaurant, the Sopris Café, serves food and both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drink options. The bathhouse features men’s, women’s and family changing rooms with free lockers and complimentary shampoo, conditioner and lotion. Towel rental is available for a small fee and the gift shop carries bathing necessities as well as souvenirs.
