Steamboat Springs’ kid-friendly activity options are so numerous, you may have to book a second trip to fit them all in. Whether the youngsters are begging to splash in the hot springs, play mini golf, hit the skate park or explore a playground or park, they won’t be disappointed.

Make a trip to the Old Town Hot Springs, right at the entrance to downtown Steamboat, where young ones can enjoy laps on the water slide or scale the in-pool climbing wall. While they play, parents can relax and watch from the neighboring pools and hot tubs.

Families may want to carve out time at Amaze’n Steamboat, a family fun park offering 18-hole mini golf, a maze, gemstone panning, shoot n’ shower basketball, squirt guns and laser tag. The variety of games will bring the whole family together in friendly competition.

ride together.

It’s hard to go wrong with a family trip to the park, and Steamboat has more than 20 to choose from. If your youngsters are skaters, a trip to Bear River Skate Park may be in order. Little Toots Park and Whistler Park offer playground equipment to burn off the zoomies. Your youngsters will be begging to come back to the ‘Boat in no time.
