Steamboat Springs

Here you’ll find an authentic mountain town and the Western hospitality that helped make it famous. But while it hasn’t forgotten its past, it’s also grown into a first-class destination that promises to show you a good time.

With a unique combination of mountains and valleys, three different lakes and a river that runs right through town, Steamboat Springs is the perfect setting for just about any summer adventure you can dream up.

In the summer, Steamboat goes from Ski Town, U.S.A.® to Bike Town, U.S.A.®. There are trails around town for easy cruising with the family, hundreds of other trails for cross-country mountain biking.

Trade your wheels for hiking boots and head out on one of the many hiking and backpacking trails. From easy strolls with the kids to challenging backcountry hikes, the one thing they all have in common is the breathtaking views.

Steamboat offers just as much fun in the water as it does on land. The Yampa River runs right through town and tubing down the waterway is a must-do Steamboat activity. Of course its Gold Medal waters also draw anglers from all over Colorado and beyond. There’s also the incredibly scenic Steamboat Lake, Pearl Lake and Stagecoach Reservoir, where you can fish, boat, canoe and sail. And when it’s time to slow down and relax, there are two geothermal hot springs waiting to rejuvenate you, one right in the heart of town and the other, Strawberry Park Hot Springs, a short drive up the mountain.

Adventure doesn’t just take place in the wilderness. In town, you’ll find all sorts of dining options in a variety of new restaurants and brewpubs that are open and offering comfortable dining options. 

So, enjoy the mountains and valleys. Enjoy the rivers and lakes. But enjoy it all responsibly. Help protect what all Steamboat has to offer while enjoying all Steamboat has to offer. Before you visit, learn more about their Kindness Floats the Boat initiative.
