Breckenridge is ski town located in Summit County, Colorado. It's a quaint little town and is close enough to the other Summit County towns of Friscoe Dillon and Silverthorne. This was my homebase for my trip as I went all over the county and other places. The town was a friendly place and it was easy to get used to it.
I got there at the tail end of ski season. Denver was 70 and dry while it was 30 degrees and snowing when I arrived after a somewhat scary ride up I-70.
Summit County is called Colorado's playground and it's easy to see why. Everything about this place was appealing once I got used to the altitude (don't take this lightly). Take a ride over to Dillon - the town that has been moved 3 times since it's inception in 1883 and drive around the reservoir (Lake Dillon).
Take a ride up to the Continental Divide in Loveland Pass. Ski at Keystone or visit the main street of Frisco for a drink (I recommend the Backcountry Brewery).
Venture out of on I-70 for some breathtaking views. I could have driven for days before I got bored. Go west to Vail or south to Leaville (see my other tips for more info).
- Pros:The scenery
- Cons:I don't live there :(
Eventually you can see Pike's Peak. Continue east on 24 and take detours to Cripple Creek. more travel advice
When the snow goes, so do the people, but visit anyway. more travel advice
