Hot Springs


Steamboat enjoys the benefit of two beautiful but drastically different Hot Springs. Pictured above is Old Town Hot Springs. Located at 136 Lincoln Ave, Old Town has it's own stop on SST Bus Route. Old Town has two outdoor hot spring mineral pools, two Water Slides for the kids, a 25 yard lap pool and a fitness center. For more info check out their website at http://www.oldtownhotsprings.org/




For a totally different experience, you should consider Strawberry Park Hot Springs. Strawberry Park is about a 30 minute ride out of town but you will need to schedule a shuttle to get there. During the winter season you will need a four wheel drive vehicle or a two wheel drive vehicle with chains. Strawberry Park is very secluded and offers several pools of varying temperature. If you go at night you will need to bring a flashlight. The views are incredible, the stars look like they are so close you can reach out and touch them.
