Do you have any idea where the 'Most Fun Town' in America is?
If you guessed in western Colorado, you're right.
In the 2013 edition of the Rand McNally Road Atlas, you'll find the resort town of Glenwood Springs named as the most fun town in America.
What's so fun about Glenwood Springs?
According to Lindsey Lewis of the Glenwood Springs chamber resort association, everything.
And that's why the city won the 'most fun town" title from Rand McNally.
We got the word out, we said 'Hey, be sure to log on to bestoftheroad.com and write a review about Glenwood Springs.'
Our visitors love to come here, they have a great time and they are genuinely excited about it. So they were happy to share their experiences and share their photos as well.
The city hosted judges from Rand McNally over the fourth of July and treated them to all of the fun things to do in the area.
This included a vaudeville show, white-water rafting, the caverns and vapor caves, and the hot springs among others.
I want to try that zip line. That looks fun.
Plus, where else in the mountains can you go surfing?
Lewis says that there are fun activities year-round and that's what brings people to Glenwood.
We've been a tourist town for 125 years.
But, it's not just a tourist town.
It's still a real town, though. It's not something that seems manufactured or fake.
For locals and visitors alike, there are almost too many things to do.
You can't do it all at once, all in one summer. There's so much to do. It's great.
It's for everybody, family, and adults. There's a little bit of everything for everybody here. It's a great place to visit.
And what may have pushed the city ahead of the pack, its friendliness.
They say we are friendly people in our country, but here, the people are so friendly, the city is so beautiful, a lot to see, to do.
Glenwood Springs was chosen from five finalists which included Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and Santa Claus, Indiana.
