Escape life’s stresses, clear your mind and find true refreshment amid Steamboat Springs’ rejuvenating activities. The Yampa Valley's great outdoors, recreation activities and wellness-based facilities ensure that you’ll leave your Colorado vacation experience genuinely refreshed.  


Melt your worries away in one of Steamboat’s famous natural hot springs. Strawberry Park Hot Springs, hidden away in the mountains north of Steamboat, is a magical experience not to be missed. Indulge in a riverside watsu massage among the aspens and rest up for the next big adventure. The family-friendly, historic Old Town Hot Springs, located downtown, offer peaceful mineral pools to soak in year-round. The facility also provides yoga and wellness classes, therapeutic massages and a fitness facility.  


The Yampa Valley’s many bodies of water will help you discover your little taste of calm. Head out on the peaceful Yampa River, tranquil Pearl Lake or breathtaking Steamboat Lake for a peaceful getaway. Anglers visit our quiet waters from all over the globe for incredible fishing and stunning views. Keep an eye out and you may glimpse wildlife as you float, boat, tube or fish. 


Treat yourself to world-class pampering at Rocky Mountain Day Spa or one of Steamboat’s other luxurious day spas. Restore serenity with a spa package, hot stone, Ashiatsu, CBD massage, oxygen facial or energetic therapy session. Whether you’re an outdoor athlete, jetlagged traveler or just someone looking for a boost, stop by Replenish IV Therapies for a wellness treatment infusion and get back to 100%. Focus on self-care at Ratka Hot Yoga or the Yoga Center of Steamboat, both of which improve your well-being and leave you with a joyful heart.  


Kick back with a great book, a local cup of coffee, and a relaxing setting at Bud Werner Memorial Library. The library has cozy nooks to cuddle up in, abundant space, and a host of ongoing creative events that ensure you the escape you need.  


Steamboat has always been a mecca for those who seek solitude in the mountains, and you’ll find precisely the peace of mind you crave on your next mountain getaway.
