In this episode, I’ll share with you how to go spring hopping and how to enjoy countless hours soaking in hot springs, which springs I liked the best, and amazing gluten-free food you can find when you’re visiting Steamboat Springs.


Colorado Road Trip 


Planning a vacation to Colorado is easier than you think! Because Colorado is such a health-conscience state, there are many options that a member of our gluten-free community can enjoy safely. With plenty of health-food stores and dining options you’re sure not to go hungry when traveling to Colorado by car. In addition to traveling by car, the Denver airport is a major hub, so you can also fly-in and out of Denver International easily. Since there are only a few gluten-free places inside the airport, plan to get a bite to eat after landing. 


Hot Spring in Steamboat Springs, Colorado


Old Town Hot Springs


From their website, "Old Town Hot Springs has eight different pools providing different functions to the facility. All of the water originates from the all natural Heart Spring and eventually flows into the additional pools. The pools vary in temperature from 103 degrees to our 80 degree lap pool."


Definitely a local's favorite, Old Town Hot Springs is part of the Steamboat Rec Facility. You can purchase a day pass and soak all day long in the springs. Enjoy the waterslide, rock climbing wall, or regular chlorinated lap pool for some water fitness. 


I enjoyed the size of this facility and the family-friendly atmosphere of Old Town Hot Springs. Each pool is maintained at a different temperature to find the amount of heat you are most comfortable in. Besides the large main pool with a bridge, there are several other smaller pools you can soak in that are more adult-oriented. 

In addition to the main hot springs, Steamboat also boasts smaller springs that are not heated over 75 degrees. You can find a list and location here on this Hot Springs guide


Strawberry Park Hot Springs


Definitely my favorite of all the hot springs I've been to in Steamboat; Strawberry Park Hot Springs offers multiple large pools with varying levels of heat. In addition to the pools, they also have chairs and provide a large restroom with a changing area. You can stay overnight in one of their cabins, the caboose train, or bring your own tent for tent camping along with enjoying the hot springs. If you're on the risque side, you're in luck! Strawberry offers clothing-optional bathing after dark to enjoy bathing in your birthday suit.


Eating Gluten Free in Steamboat Springs


Do you like Greek food? If so, head over to Skull Creek Greek to eat falafels in a dedicated fryer and gluten-free pita bread! Also, check out Seedz Breakfast and Lunch Cafe, where most of their menu is gluten-free, and all of their menus are healthy! Grab gluten-free bread to go after eating your gluten-free pancakes for breakfast or lunch. 


If you’re looking for a dedicated gluten-free facility, then head on over to Inclusions Bakery and Dessert Bar for a yummy and gluten-free cinnamon roll or if you’re looking for lunch, try the pot pie or quiche. Since the owner is Celiac, they understand the importance of being gluten-free and ensuring amazingly good food for all of us in the community.


For more lunch choices, grab a bite to eat at Salt and Lime, where the staff can tell you what is safe to eat as their menu isn’t labeled. Looking to take your lunch out for a picnic? Call ahead, and they can have it ready for you! Also, if you like sandwiches, check out the gluten-free offerings at Winona’s Restaurant, where you can dive into a gluten-free hoagie!
