A quick overview
Steamboat Springs, also called Steamboat, is best famed as a winter ski resort destination, while the summers here are as fun. There are some things that you can do here in both seasons, which is a great advantage for anyone who is looking for some adventure. The closest biggest city is Denver, which is around four hours away and can be accessed by car. If you are coming in winters, you may have certain routes/passes, like Rabbit Ears Pass, which can take longer.
What to see here?

Trails into the Routt National Forest are enjoyable, and you may want to make time for Continental Divide Trail. Just outside Steamboat, you have hot springs that are worth enjoying, and then there is Howelsen Hill, where you can enjoy skiing in winters. This small mountain resort town is also home to Fish Creek Falls Waterfall, which is best enjoyed in the summers. For hiking, you can also head to Uranium Mine, or Gilpin Lake.

Where to stay?
There are some amazing vacation rental condominiums that you can consider here instead of a hotel. Keep in mind that hotels are great, but hardly offer the comfort.

There are many websites, where you can check rental condominiums, and we recommend that you book in advance, especially in the peak winter and summer months.
