24 Hours in Steamboat Springs, Colorado

Growing up, my family went to Steamboat Springs almost every year. It’s a cute and eclectic small town in Colorado, with a picturesque downtown, and great skiing. I got to take David there for his first time a few weeks ago, and we had the best time exploring, and looking at the fall foliage. Even if you just have a day to spend, Steamboat Springs is a must add to any trip to Colorado. We’ve listed some of our favorite spots below!


Fish Creek Falls

A scenic 1/4 mile hike to a beautiful waterfall, that even the least athletic of us (raises hand), will have no trouble with.
