Although Steamboat Springs, with a peak elevation of 10,570ft, is an internationally renowned winter ski resort, its famous natural hot springs are spread all over this bubbling town and open year-round to the public, including the 4th of July holiday. You and your spouse can bathe and relax at the hot springs spa in your hotel for an hour or so, before enjoying a night out.
This 4th of July, you can benefit from an adventurous thrill ride up Mt. Werner in a private Gondola or take a scenic hot air balloon ride. If you like hiking the nature trails up the daffodil covered mountains, you and your family can take a backpack lunch with you and stop at one of the picnic areas along the way.
