The name Steamboat Springs is thought to have originated in the 1800s when French trappers thought they heard the chugging sound of a steamboat’s steam engine. The sound turned out to be a natural mineral spring and thus naming the town Steamboat Springs. With this being said, the town has two amazing hot springs for you to enjoy while you are here. Strawberry Park Hot Springs and The Old Town Hot Springs.
Strawberry Park Hot Springs is an all-natural experience about 30 minutes away from town – reservations are required. In the winter, this required a vehicle with 4WD/AWD, snow tires or chains (if you do not heed the warming there could be fines). The road back there is narrow and icy with curves – if you don’t feel comfortable driving you can use The Hot Springs Shuttle or Sweet Pea Tours.
Old Town Hot Springs is located right downtown and is very convenient for driving or property shuttles. There is not only the heart spring but two jetted hot tubs, a warm pool, a cold pool, two slides and a rock climbing wall for the kids!
