Have you picked up your copy of the August Sunset Magazine? If not, head to your nearest newsstand and pick one up. Steamboat Springs was featured as the Mountain Weekend destination in a feature called “Colorado Day Trip Steamboat Springs.” This two page spread hits on many summer time highlights of the Yampa Valley. With WONDERFUL photos and countless helpful hints throughout the two page spread the author, Boulder based Elisa Bosley touches on the most important this to see and experience while in Steamboat.

  1. “Ride the River” – Great recommendations of where and how to take advantage of the Yampa River.
  2. “Play in the Bubbles” – Details about Steamboat’s Old Town Hot Springs
  3. “Cool Off” – The article highlights the new Sweat Pea Café.
  4. “Hit the Trail” – Be sure to check out Emerald Mountain for a super mountain bike ride or great hike.

In the “4 more wild rides in the ‘Boat” the magazine encourages all visitors to Steamboat Springs to check out the Steamboat Springs Pro Rodeo Series and “cheer on cowboys”, enjoy a mountain bike ride at the Steamboat Ski Area, take part in a cattle drive and live out your childhood fantasies at the country’s only “heavy equipment play arena” Dig This.

The real question becomes, what isn’t there to do in Steamboat Springs.
