Nestled in Colorado’s gorgeous Nampa Valley, Steamboat Springs is a peaceful oasis made popular by its scenic ski resorts and unique forest quietude. A work-free zone that proudly boasts zero conference centers and all relaxation, you’ll want to make sure you’ve got a way to get around. Without any sort of Light Rail system or metro line, Steamboat Springs is a great way to look forward to the day with not a lot of transportation options. With half an hour separating Steamboat Springs from Yampa Valley Regional Airport, finding a ride to your flight can be just as difficult. Get everything done by making sure you’ve got a private lift to see it all in style, reserving a private sedan for romantic honeymoons across the mountains or making sure the whole family gets to enjoy thermal hot springs together with a chartered bus.
Surrounded by a hotbed of natural activity, finding something to lower your blood pressure is as easy as opening the window. Start with something simple, walking through Yampa River Botanic Park, home to scenic lawns and host of famous summer concerts, afterward moving onto something more immersive at Fish Creek Falls, which boasts a long rushing river, adjacent trails, and a towering waterfall. Get lost in the immersive backdrop of Medicine Bow-Routt National Forest as well, looking forward to big game hunting and a slew of camping sites that give high-end resorts a run for their money. Speaking of resorts, choose between a variety of stays to ring the morning in, from the Legacy Vacation Club’s mountain vistas to the classy rooms at Trappeur’s Crossing Resort. End the evening right with a dinner in the sky, one of the most popular options being the upscale food at Mahogany Ridge Brewery & Grill on Lincoln Avenue.
