Steamboat Springs Travel Guide + Adams Birthday Weekend!

July 30, 2018

This past weekend my husband, my in-laws and I ventured up the mountains to Steamboat Springs to celebrate Adam's birthday! It's always so fun jumping in the car and driving 2 hours to an entirely new place.

Before this weekend, I'd never been to Steamboat, so I was super excited to explore and see what this mountain town has to offer. We did it all. Even at (almost) 34 weeks pregnant, I didn't let that slow me down. Sure I wasn't hiking the highest peaks, but I loved walking around the town.

Have you ever been to Steamboat? Tell me your favs!

WHAT TO DO // There is so much to do in Steamboat. From cute shops to great restaurants, I promise you won't be bored. Steamboat is the cutest cowboy mountain town, it's totally different from the other mountain towns I've been too, but its full of fun stuff.
  • Ski 
  • FM Light and Sons // It is this classic western shop with the best western gear and so many boots. I bought baby girl the cutest pink moccasins. 
  • Rodeo 
  • Farmers Market // We ventured down to the Farmers Market Saturday after brunch and it was amazing. There had to be over 150 vendors of all kinds of goods. Fresh fruit, clothing, leather goods. It was so fun perusing all the shops. 
  • Soak in the Hot Springs // I mean it' s called Steamboat Springs for a reason.
  • Mountain Tap Brewery // Can't go to a town and not visit the local brewery!
Look at that cute birthday boy. He didn't know this was being taken by the way :) 
WHERE TO STAY //  We wanted to stay all together, so we rented a VRBO, but Steamboat has a ton of darling hotels. These are some of the cutest I found:
WHERE TO EAT // I was super surprised at all the amazing restaurants Steamboat had to offer. You gotta seek them out, but they are there. These are a few of my favs.
  • Creekside Cafe // Creekside is this darling little spot for breakfast right on the creek (hence the name, obvs). I had the best oatmeal pancakes of my life. 
  • Cafe Diva // Such a delicious dinner. This place is a little fancier, but its Steamboat, so no-one looked twice at my converse.
  • Smell that bread bakery // The cutest little bakery with homemade breads, cookies and pastries. Get their early, they sell out fast! 

I dare you not to eat all the bread 
  • Truffled Pig // This restaurant is in the shops by the gondola and has the best outside patio! Make sure to get the key-lime pie!
Look at that view - the mountain isn't too shabby either :) 
Get the lemon + coconut blue crab. It'll change your life.
