Top Answers To Steamboat Springs Travel Questions
There was a Dig This heavy-equipment play area in Steamboat Springs, but it has since closed. The Dig This HQ is still in Steamboat but their only current location is in Las Vegas. More info at: http://www.digthis.info/
If you will be skiing/snowboarding, Steamboat is, in my opinion, the best Colorado has to offer. After hitting the slopes, it's always a good idea to visit the hot springs in town or just outside town at Strawberry Springs (note: I hear it's "clothing optional" after 8pm). The hot springs pool in town is a great place to take kids as they have a great tube slide into the pool (which fills with steam during cold weather to make it even more exhilerating). If you will still be in town Saturday afternoon (April 2, 2011), there is a free "Rock the 'Boat" concert series featuring Grammy-winning Los Lonely Boys. This is sure to be a good time. For a great, inexpensive bar hangout, visit The Tugboat. The Ore House has excellent food and won't disappoint. Be sure to walk up Main Street and visit all the unique shops it offers. Also, can I come with you?! ;)
Answer this2 AnswersPieter answered:Steamboat is good, but if you want the state's best, it might be better to head south a few hours towards Aspen. There, you'll find plenty. If you don't mind catch and release, the Frying Pan is one of the best streams in the country. The Roaring Fork has some big 'bows also.
Answer this2 AnswersIt's a haul and a whole lot of Kansas -- 832 miles, ~14 hours. The last three hours (from Denver to Steamboat) run up through the mountains and are really scenic. The rest is flat and wide open.
