Dubbed “Ski Town U.S.A.”, Steamboat Springs is a world-class ski destination with an ample supply of summer sports activities as well. You won’t find any steamboats in town, however. The city gets its name from several geothermal hot springs in the area and there are two hot springs open to the public. Consider a spacious vacation rental instead of a small, sterile hotel room. From luxurious mountainside chalets to quaint cabins and ultra-modern, amenity rich condominiums, your vacation choices in Steamboat Springs are diverse in a wide variety of price ranges.
Phenomenal snow skiing in Steamboat Springs is a no brainer with five Nordic ski centers that are located within 30 minutes from downtown.

For the action-oriented family, traveling with kids requires everything from toys and video games to laptops and sports equipment. Small hotel rooms just weren’t designed for families. The solution to your space problem is a vacation rental. Amenities like large living and dining areas and big closets are commonplace in most vacation rentals and the added rooms allow you more storage space plus additional areas to stretch out and truly relax. Better still, with a fully equipped kitchen you can prepare meals on your own and bypass pricey restaurants. Can you say, hot beef stew on a snowy day?
