Colorado Ghost Town turned Hot Spring
Dunton Hot Springs in southwest Colorado not only has a beautiful hot spring for guests to enjoy, but luxury cabins surrounded by the gorgeous San Juan Mountains. Dunton was formerly a ghost town, now turned into a relaxing getaway. The hot springs are man-made and range in temperature from 85*F to 106*F. Reservations are highly recommended as the resort is all-inclusive and a popular tourist destination for families.
Another great hot springs destination is the Cascate del Mulino located in Tuscany, Italy. The 15 thermal pools average around 98*F. The waterfalls create an almost dream-like atmosphere for the free attraction, which is enjoyable year-round. The water, however, is sulphuric and smells a bit, but a hot shower after enjoying the springs will rid you of any smell. The water is said to cure respiratory diseases and skin problems. This hot spring is a bit rocky, so be sure to pack some shoes you can wear in the water or sandals of some sort!
