Here's Some Fun Activities!
Now that winter is here it's time to look at all the great stuff to-do in town. There's so much that we're only going to cover a few of our favorites each week. So this weeks featured activities are below!
Old Town Hot Springs, one of Colorado's premier hot springs, is a multi-use complex, open to the public. Old Town Hot Springs is located at 136 Lincoln Avenue (near the corner of 3rd and Lincoln Ave.) in downtown Steamboat Springs, Colorado. The facility is open seven days a week with eight, hot spring-fed pools, two water slides, (seasonal: winter and summer only), a fitness center, exercise classes, and massage. Steamboat's Old Town Hot Springs is a must on your visit to Steamboat. The Old Town Hot Springs, your non-profit Heart of the Community, is a 501(c)3 corporation, solely supported by facility revenues and donations.
There's fun for the whole family here. The outdoor pools range from 98-103 degrees and are open year-round. They also have a fitness room with some of the latest equipment to choose from. Along with childcare services and fitness classes there's plenty of options for everyone at Old Town Hot Springs.
Just outside of Steamboat Springs nestled alongside Hot Springs Creek lies one of the most spectacular mineral springs in the world. Imagine relaxing in 104 degree mineral water while Steamboat’s famous Champagne Powder gently collects in the surrounding forest. Enjoy a massage in one of our beautiful private massage huts or a watsu therapy in our private pool. The pools are perfect for relaxing after a long day of skiing or hiking, or for a day-long visit!
Strawberry Park is located about 7 miles out of town and it is about a 20 minute drive. In winter there is a 4x4 requirement for the road to get to the springs, but they offer shuttles so you don't have to worry about that. At night Strawberry Park is clothing optional so beware if you have kids.
Maybe before a dip in the hot springs you want to go on a little adventure. Try out these awesome activities for an eventful day!
