A ski town with a wild west her­itage, Steam­boat Springs has a unique mix of sun, spurs and ski slopes. The laid-back at­mos­phere and an ap­petite and ap­pre­ci­a­tion for the arts has given rise to a ro­bust arts district in Steam­boat. De­signed to bring out the artist in ev­ery­one, Steam­boat Springs' creative district, called Steam­boat Cre­ates, wel­comes ev­ery kind of creative, from com­posers and cooks to bak­ers and brew­ers - and ev­ery­one in be­tween. The district it­self is made up of more than 17 art gal­leries; the Steam­boat Art Mu­seum; the De­pot Art Cen­ter; the Perry-Mans­field Per­form­ing

Arts School & Camp, which is the na­tion's old­est op­er­at­ing per­form­ing arts camp; as well as fes­ti­vals of all kinds through­out the year.
