Steamboat is top Colorado destination for July 4th weekend

According to AAA Steamboat is the top destination for Colorado travelers this 4th of July based on bookings through AAA. Even though more people are discovering Steamboat we have a built in advantage that we are not a day trip market, things can't get too crowded since there are only so many rooms and campsites availible. Even when we are a peak visitor levels if you get off main street downtown or 1/2 mile up a trail you can find all the solitude you are looking for. Have a great 4th. For all of the issues this county has faced the past few years I can't think of a place I would rather call home and I hope that you feel the same.

From the The Denver Business Journal: According to bookings through AAA Colorado, the top five in-state destinations are: 1. Steamboat Springs, 2. Denver, 3. Colorado Springs, 4. Montrose, and 5. Aspen. AAA Colorado reaches one in four of the state's households.
Despite an increase in the cost to travel, 29-percent more Coloradoans than last year will be traveling this July 4th weekend, according to a AAA Colorado report on Wednesday. The national increase in travel is 1.2-percent. AAA reported that July 4 marks the biggest travel weekend of the summer because it's the first major holiday weekend after schools close. The company predicts that because the holiday falls on a Tuesday, people may take a five-day weekend this year.
