Summer in Steamboat is one of our favorite seasons, and if your seasonal journey brings you to our mountain town during the longest days of the year, we have created a guide to ensure you love it as much as we do with these fun Steamboat Springs summer activities! Spend long days exploring the great outdoors and quiet evenings enjoying the luxuries of our vacation escapes, and when your time here is up, don’t be too sad. There are three other seasons that are equally enjoyable, so maybe you can start making plans to experience them as well!
Yes, golf is one of the many popular Steamboat summer activities, and we have a variety of courses to prove it! The Haymaker Golf Course, located at 34855 US-40 and designed by Keith Foster, offers a natural landscape filled with mature trees and picturesque water hazards in the shadow of Mt. Werner, ensuring that everywhere you turn the views will impress. When time is of the essence, the 9-hole Steamboat Golf Club allows you to practice your putting and chipping, enjoy a drink or a snack on the deck of the 19th hole, or get in a quick nine before you have to get to move on to your next adventure!
Stand-up paddleboarding is a craze that has swept across the nation and shows no signs of lessening in popularity, and there are multiple places where you can participate in fun Steamboat Springs summer activities and sports like this one! Rent your gear from Paddleboard Adventure Company, 675 S Lincoln Avenue, and spend the long days of summer paddleboarding on Stagecoach Reservoir, Steamboat Lake, or even on the Yampa River!
Fun Steamboat Summer Activities
The lakes and rivers that dot our Colorado landscape aren’t just pretty to look at, they also feature fishing opportunities guaranteed to answer the age-old question, “What’s for dinner?” The answer is a sweet and fresh fish caught during your flyfishing session, also on the Yampa River!
The Sidewalk Is Not for Sale
But the clothing and wares sitting on the sidewalks during Memorial Day and Labor Day are, and our downtown Steamboat shops are happy to offer discounts during their sidewalk sales in the summer! Pick up something pretty at Steamboat Apparel and Gifts or something glittery at the Jewelry & Fossil Shop of Steamboat, confident in the knowledge that you are getting a deal.
