"Downtown Steamboat is a great lively little town"

There are not many downtown areas be it city or mountain towns that I could call home but downtown Steamboat is an exception. Yes, there are lots and lots of tourists in the winter and really year round but this is a great town! It is not just a resort town, there is real character. Lots of restaurants, shops, bars, some bookstores, cafes, organic grocery store etc...

The best part about living downtown are the greata side streets and the historic homes that skirt the main street. The cost is high! Living in Steamboat, especially downtown, is notoriously expensive plus gas, food and goods are more because they are hauled up to the sweet secluded valley in northern Colorado.

For those young soul (in body and or soul) who want to live in a mountain town, near a hotspring and ski slope, who don't mind tourists (or want to somehow make some dough off of that industry) Steamboat may be a dream place. For those who have not checked the town out...do! Another great part about the area is the schools by the way.
