A Day in the Life: The Perfect Steamboat Summer Day

You’ve heard it, probably many times before, “I came to Steamboat for the winter, but stayed for the summer!”  A cliche, perhaps, but a true one.  Steamboat summers are just as fabulous as the winters, if not more so!

How so?  Check out A Day in the Life: a typical summer Steamboat day.  Come on, could it get any more perfect than this?

7:00am You’re up early – so much to do!

7:45am Breakfast (coffee and a bagel?  Winona’s waffle?  Anything goes!)

9:30am You’re on the gondola, bike in tow.

9:45am The beautiful view, no matter how many times you’ve seen it before, catches your eye and you stop to take it in before jumping on your bike for an exhilarating ride to the bottom.

11:30am Sweaty, you head to grab lunch with a smile.  (No need to shower if you’ve got more planned for the day – Steamboat’s a home for outdoor enthusiasts!)

1pm – The heat of the day has set in and you grab your tube and head to the Yampa. Fun, water, and relaxation ahead!

3:30pm A couple hours on the river has left you parched.  Happy Hour anyone?  There are plenty of riverside options in Steamboat.

5pm You suppose a shower is probably due and you head home (and your friends, by now, are thanking you).

6:30pm Dinner out or in?  It’s Friday, so out it is, and you head to the same happy hour spot for some good food.

7:30pm Rodeo!  Hey, it’s a Steamboat tradition – and a fun one at that!

Sound like a day on vacation?  Hey, in Steamboat, it’s just the norm.
