For added adventure, book a horse drawn wagon or horseback dinner excursion. You’ll see the Flattops, Sleeping Giant, Mt. Werner, and many other Steamboat Springs breathtaking landmarks on your journey. When you reserve online, you can opt to be picked up at the Mt. Werner Transit Center.

Locals bike for exercise, to experience the beauty of the area, and even bike to work!

Test your skills at the jump park with various hills and ramps for riders from beginner and intermediate to advanced dirt bikers. Come back in the winter for a “fat tire” snow biking experience.


The golfers of the group will want to make their clubs part of the packing list this Memorial Day. The Steamboat Springs area boasts three nearby golf courses where you’ll share the course with wildlife like elk, eagles, or blue herons. Steamboat Golf Club is a nine-hole course perfect for a quick game or choose one of the more challenging courses like Rollingstone Golf Club or Haymaker Golf Course If your clubs didn’t make the packing list, ask about a rental set when booking your tee time.

Hot Air Balloon Ride

For a different view of the area, take to the skies in a hot air balloon with Wildwest Balloon Adventures.  Due to wind and weather conditions, flights only take place in the early morning. Included in the experience are a continental breakfast, champagne toast, and flight certificate to commemorate the ride for each person. Ask about the group, senior, military, and child discount rates when booking. Flights may be canceled due to weather or other safety risks.

Tread of Pioneers Museum

While the mountains, springs, and trails will keep you outdoors for hours during your Steamboat Springs respite, there is indoor fun to be had, too. Learn about Steamboat Springs and its roots. The heart of the museum is a 1901 Queen Anne-style Victorian home featuring turn-of-the-century furnishings. Explore interactive exhibits of local and regional Native American history, skiing, agriculture, mining, pioneer settlement, town development, and more.

Water Sports

Make sure your bathing suits and sun gear make the packing list. You’ll want to head to one of the three Colorado state parks with lakes that surround the Steamboat Springs area.
