|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 1:00pm on Friday, repeating until February 1, 2019

Tour guide and historian Marianne Capra will be leading downtown tours to fundraise for the school history programs she provides called the My Place, My Home series.  For five-weeks starting in January 2019, you can attend four different walking tours that tell the hiSTORY of Steamboat Springs.

This pilot program is being promoted by Mainstreet Steamboat and is running under the name:  Steamboat Tours4Tips  (100% satisfaction guaranteed because you tip what the experience was worth to you.)  Recommendation:  Attend them all because each story builds on the next!  These tours are also supported by the Arts Council, Big Iron Coffee Co. Downtown, and the Parks & Rec Department of the City of Steamboat Springs.

Quote from Marianne:  “See Steamboat through brand new eyes:  I invite you to time-travel with me as we walk the downtown streets, finding clues and artifacts of the past, then connecting them to the stories of today.  Steamboat Springs is rich with fascinating stories you may not have heard before. I’ve spent years leading outdoor tours in national parks and wild places in the West, and I’m excited to share my expertise with the public this winter, since most of the history work I have done here these past 18 years have been private programs.  Look for me in period costume, bring the whole family, or just treat yourself to something different in 2019.”
