Relax in one of multiple hot springs in town after a long day in the mountains. *Note it's under construction right now and being completely remodeled, so any photos out there won't be accurate anymore.

There are three different hot springs facilities to choose from in Ouray, notable for its proximity to the San Juan peaks. Orvis Hot Springs has seven pools, each ranging from between 98 and 112 degrees, with nice views to accompany your soak. Wiesbaden Hot Springs has a natural vaporcave, in addition to their pools. Ouray Hot Springs Pool, alternatively, is a more family-friendly option, with a picnic area (pictured above).

You won't get the solitude of some other hot springs but the cost is reasonable and it's a perfect way to end a day of exploring. Get the 3 punch pass if you know you'll be back. The biggest downside to this place is they aren't open late so summer star gazing in the pool isn't really an option.
