Looking for a perfect family vacation idea? I've got you covered. Views. Therapeutic water. Sun. Shade. Kid friendly pools. Waterslides. HOT pools for the parents. A nearby park. Ummmmm, Rocky Mountain Heaven. They don't call Ouray the Switzerland of America for nothing. All the heart eyes for this San Juan Mountain Range. Our family absolutely loves Ouray Hot Springs + I think you will too.
The newly remodeled pool has something for everyone. A volleyball area, an obstacle course for older kids, a water slide, a shaded pool, HOT pools, lap lanes. Tons of chairs + even shaded areas for seating.
This overhead photo was taken during our family hike on the Perimeter Trail. I absolutely recommend this trail for families. There are some steep sections + the kids likely won't hike the entire loop, but it's an excellent experience to hike as much as you can together.
This pool offers awesome floats to rent or, you can bring your own. Bowan was in love with this life-like gator. He was a wild one to ride!
Where else can you do a waterslide with this kind of view?
Breck loved the waterslide. He had such a great time!
Breck snorkeled the day away + had the absolute best time. He's really gained confidence as a swimmer this summer + snorkeling in the warm water really gave him a great opportunity to improve his swimming skills + confidence in the water.
Bowan was living his best life on the float we found at Target.
Bridger was worn out after a lot of fun in the sun.
