Top Things to Do in Steamboat Springs, Steamboat Springs, Colorado (B)

Steamboat Springs, also known as Steamboat or the “boat”, is located in Routt County, Colorado and has a population of approximately 13,000. The town came by its name during early times when trappers heard a chugging noise and thought a steamboat was coming down the river. Upon discovering the sound came from the surrounding natural hot springs, they named the settlement Steamboat Springs.

Today, the small, mountain town is popular tourist destination for both winter and summer activities. While I have visited Steamboat in the summer, winter and fall, this post focuses on things to do during the warmer months.

During my last visit to Steamboat, I borrowed a friend’s place at the Yampa View Condos. The condos are comfortable and conveniently located less than five minutes from the ski mountain and less than ten minutes from downtown. Her two-bedroom, two-bath unit offered lovely views of the valley below and the sunset!

Steamboat features a variety of restaurants offering all types of cuisines. Many have outdoor seating, and we took advantage of it at a handful of places including E3 Chophouse, O’Neil’s Tavern & Grill, and Carl’s Tavern.  ......
