About a 3 hours from Denver, Colorado I recommend this for an upcoming girls trip/Bach party/birthday ect. I went during the Off Season (which i highly recommend), because I would be the first one to plant face first on some skis. I stayed at the Sheraton Hotel soon to be bought out by another chain hotel. The location was great, connected to everything that you would want to do while your there. The weather was amazing, the scenery phenomenal! The people are so nice, you know its like pulling teeth getting people to say hello back to you in Vegas, here the vibe is friendly and welcoming!! Lots of cool places on the Yampa River.. great place for not only skiing but all outdoor activities.
TOP THINGS TO DO:
1 Gondola Ride- Must Do; hit up the Happy Hour On Sunday it was awesome w live music seating is a problem if you have a big group but people are so friendly you are welcome to join tables.
2 Fish Creek Falls – We saw the waterfall and hiked about 1/2 mile it was awesome! very serene and beautiful I suggest it!
3 Strawberry Park Hot Springs – amazing place totally instagram worthy only problem is… NO SERVICE. its natural so if you are looking for super clean blue ocean waters this is not for you its slimmy. but a great experience.
TOP PLACES TO EAT:
Mountain Tap Brewery – Pizzas and small plates, great fresh foods.
Top of the Gondola – I had the happy hour food it was amazing the shrimp cocktail was delicious and huge, the caprese salad was good wish it had some balsamic but other than that i was very happy w it!
Aurum Food & Wine – “top rated” restaurants in Steamboat, with executive chef Patrick Funk. First, the service was terrible. I ordered the Crab Crusted Halibut, with Black Pepper Crudi, Wilted Spinach, Bacon Lardons, Heirloom Tomato, pickled Mustard Seed Parmesan and Clam Broth, for $41.00 along with the Corn Chowder Soup. The Soup was terrible, runny, not the consistency you want a chowder to be… even it was a tomato chowder. The Halibut was okay, cooked great hated the accompaniments, dint like how soggy the the Crudi got in the Clam Broth…
STEAMBOAT VIBES I LOVED:
My family and I really enjoyed it, most things you could walk to, being from Vegas we don’t see much green but the scenery was amazing! I loved the emphases on health, mind, body and spirit. It is a great place to have a bachelorette party with your closes besties. Theres tons to do and see, in a quieter off season.
JoySticks!! – love them they are made by Gardenom they are all natural I personally used mine like a honey for my coffee and i love all things.. trendy and cool! they also have calm sticks both contain CBD
Humble Bee Botanicals – I got there loose tees called Happier Days. I love it and the price was right super cool super delicious teas. another trendy buy i couldn’t live without!
There are amazing local bakeries and soda fountain shops! they exceed even the fine dining! They also offer amazing Chai/Herbal Teas – Kombucha, stuff like that.. if you love birkenstocks, Lulumeon, patagonia and morels this is the spot for you LOL!
Def Bring your Hiking Boots & Cash (Some Places only Take Cash). Over all a great place to go for a few days to get away!
