Steamboat Springs, Colorado

Contrary to popular belief, there's no
steamboat in Steamboat Springs...

The town got its name in the late 1800s when French Fur Trappers who were visiting the area mistook the chugging sound from a local spring as the sounds of familiar steamboats back home. James Crawford, who first settled in Steamboat Springs in 1875, designed the town and streets to allow enough room for cattle to be driven through the center of town.

In the shadow of the mountains our valley spreads across miles and miles, inviting you to come experience a summer adventure in the heart of the Colorado west.

What's your pleasure? In our unique setting, you'll find mountain bike trails second to none, rivers you can fish, tube, kayak and play in, lakes that will take your breath away, golf courses to challenge every club in your bag, hiking trails with incredible views, and meadows of wildflowers that define summer in the Colorado mountains. Not to mention a town with more than 60 bars and restaurants, museums, art galleries, festivals, rodeos, concerts, trail runs, marathons and more shopping than you can shake a credit card at. Welcome to the perfect setting for your summer passions.
