“What's better than breakfast beside a babbling brook? That's what you'll get at Creekside, which is located downtown right next to Soda Creek. It will obviously only babble in the summer, but this spot is a must-hit if you love breakfasts done right.”

Theme Park Ride / Attraction
“Located downtown Steamboat Springs. This is the less scenic hotsprings here, but still really enjoyable. More of a pool setting with several hot tubs and health spa. Great for small children, families and couples. Google photos of it. As a local, this is where I go, because it is closer than Strawberry Park, and has showers and lockers. However, when I have out of town visitors, I take them to Strawberry Park Hotsprings as it is more natural looking. Not as great for kids, though people bring their kids there all the time. I recommend looking at both places on google images. Both cost the same. ”

“You ever had a cinnamon bun so big and delicious that you went temporarily blind from it? We haven't either, but if you are able to finish one of their famous massive pastries in one sitting, you'll swear you might need to at least shut your eyes for a while and revel in the flavor of heaven covered in 3 lbs of icing. The breakfast is good here too.”
