Let us help you plan an amazing four days of fun in Steamboat Springs with family and friends leading up to your big day.
Fuel up with a healthy breakfast at one of the locally owned eateries. Then, enjoy a scenic hike up to the Fish Creek Falls and take in two beautiful waterfalls on your hike (see our hiking trails for directions). Cool off in the afternoon by floating down the Yampa River in an inner tube or kayak. Treat yourself to a cold beverage at one of the many restaurants overlooking the river on Yampa Street.
Grab your bike or rent a cruiser and enjoy a ride on the Yampa River Core Trail. Stop along the way and explore the Botanic Park. Then grab your swimsuit and head to Old Town or Strawberry Park Hot Springs. Soak and enjoy the afternoon away. Perhaps even get a massage at Strawberry Park in the therapeutic water. End the day with a Strings Music Festival concert tap your foot to a bluegrass band at a downtown bar.
Grab a delicious breakfast at one of the many local breakfast cafés in town. Then gas up for a 25 mile scenic drive up Elk River Road to Steamboat Lake and the Zirkel Wilderness Area. You can spend the day boating, hiking, biking, and swimming at the beach area. Or, take a picturesque horseback ride through aspen groves with incredible vistas around every turn. Pack a picnic lunch or dine at one of the area restaurants. Be sure to try the fudge at the Steamboat Lake Marina store. Head back to town for a delicious dinner. End the day at the Steamboat Pro Rodeo (every Friday and Saturday night from the 3rd weekend in June through the 3rd weekend in August). An evening of cowboy entertainment for the whole crew!
DAY 4/WEDDING DAY
Take a sunrise Yoga or Pilates class at one of the local studios. Instructors can also come to your lodging location for a private class with the bridesmaids, family, and friends. Order in a scrumptious breakfast of locally made granola and organic fruit. Send the boys out for a morning of fly fishing on the Yampa River where they will enjoy the world class water with some of the best trout fishing in the country. Pamper yourself with wedding day prep at a luxurious spa. Enjoy the day that will turn into an evening of wedding bliss.
