Benefits of Downtown Steamboat

Why Stay In Downtown Steamboat Springs?

Downtown Steamboat Springs is the core of our fun-filled city. For those who’ve never been to Steamboat before, the ski area and its sloping neighborhoods may seem like the only ideal places to stay in Ski Town USA. But while the resort area is attractive, most of the scenery, eateries and activities are located downtown.

Discover a plethora of food and drink spots that all have something special to suit you and your family. Peruse numerous shops and unique stores that encompass a western attitude and host modern delights that are sure to have desires beyond your needs. Staying downtown during your vacation allows for easy access to everything Steamboat like historic Howelsen Hill, the Chief Theater, a multitude of shops and diverse restaurants and the famous Yampa River.

There’s no need to rely on a vehicle to get around because the Steamboat Springs Transit is a hybrid bus that’s free to the public and travels throughout downtown and the mountain area. These prized chauffeurs work day and night to provide a reliable resource for those who don’t feel like driving or need a hassle free way to experience downtown Steamboat’s nightlife.
