Hello! Planning a super short getaway in the form of a babymoon. I will be 31 weeks pregnant in the time-frame we're looking at (Weekend of July 21-22). We originally live in Westminster, CO so Steamboat Springs is a ~3 drive, barely an elevation difference and recommended by many people. (although we thought that a ski town would have nothing to do in summers). Do you think it will make for a relaxing weekend
My questions are:
- Chances are we'll drive early Sat morning, check in on Saturday 21st July and checkout 22nd because hubs gets back from work at 6pm on Friday. Unless you recommend to check in on Friday night itself (even if its late), only if there's fun night time activity and we should make the drive there in the evening that way we'll stretch the trip a few hours more?
-We usually make reservations through Expedia- but there are only 3 hotels left on those dates: The Victorian B&B (best reviews) is costing $240/ night if we get a twin bed room (on a babymoon?). The Queen and King options are both $350. The Village at Steamboat Springs (condos) is ~180/ night and Holiday Inn is ~$300/ night. Trip advisor has some other options- Sheraton for $213, Legacy Vacation Resorts $230. Any thoughts on what hotel to go with? Or actually condominiums are the way to go here it seems. Other recommendations/ places to book if not from this list?
- Someone mentioned the hot air balloon festival but (bummer!) its a week before we come. There's a free concert in the amphitheater it seems plus a movie in the park that Sat night.
- activities a preggo to-be mama can do- flat/ easy hikes? Downtown/ music and shopping? Also recommendations on places to eat. Hubs and I love seafood plus vegetarian options. Cannot drink obviously but we have a sweet tooth too!
