Some day trips are all about adventure, others about learning. And while those are certainly worthwhile reasons to take a day trip, sometimes the best ones are all about relaxation.
If you’re seeking peaceful serenity in nature while in Colorado, boy, do we have the spot for you. Strawberry Park Hot Springs in Steamboat Springs, Colorado makes for an incredibly luxe-feeling (yet affordable!) day trip destination that will have your muscles thanking you.
The resort features several different natural pools of varying heat (always above 101 degrees, despite the temperature outside) for visitors to take a soak in while they enjoy the stunning mountain scenery surrounding the springs. Massage therapists are on hand, and there are picnic areas to relax at when you need a break from the pools. And while it may seem like more of a winter activity, we can attest the hot springs feel amazing regardless of the season.
There are multiple sections at the Strawberry Park Hot Springs, which means you can find the temperature that’s just right for you.
If you’re looking to get more out of your soak, you can also try Watsu, a type of aquatic massage therapy that will leave you in a state of bliss.
The hot springs themselves are located in such a beautiful spot, with mountains and forests surrounding the area.
And while this makes an amazing day trip, if you want to extend the stay there are camping options on site.
You can bring food to picnic with at the springs. Alternately, you can plan for a nice dinner out in downtown Steamboat Springs, which is only a few miles away, after your spa day.
Another option would be taking advantage of the many hiking trails in the area before heading to the springs to soothe your aching muscles.
You’ll walk away from this day feeling completely refreshed.
Make sure to get a reservation before you go! You can learn more about how to plan your trip by visiting their website.
