For more than a decade, the Steamboat Wine Festival has been filling the fresh mountain air of Steamboat Springs with robust and light bouquets of wines from all over the world. The three-day festival takes over the town and the surrounding countryside with a long roster of events, featuring everything from typical festival activities, such as live music and seminars on wine, beer, and spirits. The festival also sponsors unexpected outings, such as rounds of golf, bike rides, and hikes. There's even a standup-paddleboarding class, which echoes the goals of the festival's nonprofit beneficiary, STARS, an organization that provides recreational opportunities for people with disabilities.
Each day is anchored by a capstone event. At the kickoff celebration, Wine on the Mountain, festival attendees are whisked to the top of Mount Werner to enjoy the view, snack on appetizers, and sample varietals while discussing their finer points with sommeliers and other winery representatives. The next day, a tour called the Stroll of Steamboat winds along the town's main street?adjacent to the Yampa River?where visitors get a glimpse of what the local restaurants and retailers have to offer. Finally, the Toast of Steamboat acts as the festival's Grand Tasting, offering samples of over 500 wines, beers, and spirits and small bites from more than 20 area eateries. The Beer-b-q event caps off the weekend Saturday night with craft brews, live music and mouth-watering BBQ.
The Elkhead Mountains offer a calm respite from the crowded trails found along many Steamboat Springs–area mountain ranges. The drivers at Elkhorn Adventure Tours take full advantage of the open space, bounding across the landscape in a fleet of open-top Call of Duty–model Jeep Wranglers. The off-roaders lead half-day and full-day tours throughout the scenic backcountry, filled with sights of natural vegetation and wildlife such as elk and antelope. During longer tours, guests pause to enjoy a packed picnic lunch or sandwich as they debate the logistics of creating a second Mount Rushmore featuring only Baldwin brothers.

You'll see a lot of gleeful, childlike expressions on the attractions at Amaze'n Steamboat Family Fun Park, and not just on the faces of children—guests of all ages take delight in the center's family-friendly attractions. Putt under logs, around rocks, and through an old-fashioned mine over 18 holes of miniature golf, or rocket up to 20 feet in the air on the bungee trampoline. Younger kids shake down pans just like in the Wild West at the gemstone panning station, searching for hidden treasures among the ruddy rocks. After getting dirty, visitors can load up massive squirt guns in the giant maze for a super-soaker battle, or take a turn at the basketball station, where the loser gets showered with icy water. For watery fun that seems to defy the laws of physics, climb inside a water walker—the transparent, human-sized orbs let visitors glide across the water without paying steep tuition fees to a local dolphin.
