America’s 20 Best Small Towns Includes Steamboat Springs

I’ve written before about Steamboat Springs topping lists of greatest ski areas and such. Like last summer Dog Fancy Magazine named Steamboat “Dog Town USA”, stating that our community is “a mile-high mecca for dogs and their owners, embracing a love of canines in daily life and activities year-round.” I must agree, we are dog people here in Ski Town USA.

Most recently, however, Smithsonian.com named Steamboat one of America’s 20 Best Small Towns to Visit. For this particular list, the Smithsonian was looking for places where at least per capita “cultural opportunities abound”. They highlighted the fact that Steamboat, in addition to our world-class black diamonds at Steamboat Ski Area, offers orchestral concerts and operas, a world-class music festivalfree concert series, and great music year-round.

TravelChannel.com named Steamboat “a Dreamboat for families” in their Top 10 Family Spring Break Vacations a few weeks back.  While last fall, Outside Magazine included Steamboat on their list of 20 favorite resorts.

Some of the other lists that Steamboat Springs, CO has topped, include: National Geographic’s 25 World’s Best Ski Towns in 2012 and Ski Magazine’s “Best Ski Areas in the Country”.

We do have a lot to celebrate and be grateful for here in the Yampa Valley and we appreciate the recognition. If you have not visited Steamboat Springs, what are you waiting for? Bring the family and enjoy yourselves!
