    Hallmark Movie Scene! Great town with great vibes. Many stores to shop, restaurants to eat and bars to drink at! Parking can be a challenge, so I suggest you walk to enjoy all Breckenridge has to offer.

    This is one of the many roads in the Breckenridge area that are truly outstanding ! If possible make the trip in late September of early October and catch the beautiful fall colors, especially the Aspens.

    This is a very well designed trail which I highly recommend. Most people bike just downhill, but the up and downhill ride from Frisco to Vail (28 miles total) was worth the time, energy burned, and expense (bike rental). (The bike shop in Frisco next to the Walmart was excellent for that, btw). If they could only put up a little barrier (and clean off the gravel) between the short downhill section from the top of the pass (headed toward Vail) that goes right by the highway.

    We hiked Lower McCullough Gulch Trail on a beautiful Fall day. It was about 2-3 miles and moderately challenging. We were rewarded with beautiful mountain views and pretty foliage - including wonderful yellow Aspens.

    Highly recommend this little stop for great pics and a nicely manicured short hiking loop! Wonderful little gem. Highly recommended for a quick stop on a site seeing tour of the area.

    We did both the private bourbon tasting followed by a dinner reservation and everything was exceptional. The tasting was so fun. Mike explained to us the history of the distillery, the different types of bourbon (and other liquor) distilled by Breckenridge Distillery, and the different notes to expect with each sip. Last year while in Breck, we were introduced to their bourbon in their tasting room in downtown Breck. This year we wanted to go to the actual distillery and it is worth the visit. They have a great environment and of course, great drink. The restaurant is also fantastic. Great drink menu and the food is delicious. Definitely worth the visit while in Breck.

    This is a great road to get to Breckenridge. The snowplows are proficient in keeping the pass open and the road is in good condition. We always use this route when we head to the ski areas in this area.

    A great little trail just outside of Breckinridge. Reaching the lower lake took us up close to 1500 ft of ascent. The trail can get a little twisty and hard to follow at times, but with a steady trickle of other hikers, we found our way. The alpine lake is stunning and you get a lovely waterfall on the way as well. Take it all in and enjoy the crisp air and views as you move higher and higher.

    We visited in August and despite the rainy weather, we only had two pauses on the activities, once for rain and once for lightning. I agree with others on the lines, don't waste the money on the unlimited as there isn't enough time to do everything more than once. Our wait times on the alpine slide and mountain coaster were slightly under an hour, and while we were planning to do the scenic chair as our third activity it was closed (lightning) and also we found out it was free anyway so the kids did putt putt as their 3rd instead of waiting in line. My advice, change the rules for taking alcohol out of the area near the restaurant and let us drink in line and we would all be happier AND you'll sell more:) Secondly, the refund policy in case of rain is a joke. Most people pay thousands of dollars to visit Breckenridge, being able to return for a raincheck isn't a reality for most people.

    Nice trails around homes and in the woods. All trails groomed, easily 6-8ft wide. Varied terrain, no to many views. Extended to the resort base and Peaks Trail. Well kept, pretty lodge with a few snack options. Great place to sit afterward. We had our own gear but saw lessons going on. We also skated at Frisco and Gold Run. Our favorite was Frisco for terrain and maintenance. We were able to get a "punch" pass for 6 passes we could both split AND use at the other local cross country courses. Made it a reasonable deal.

    The kids (and adults )had a blast sledding down the hill! We were so glad that we found this beautiful park. Spent two afternoons of fun and exercise! Also loved to see all the dogs enjoying playing at the dog park. A must day of fun, free of charge!

    Help. Flying to Breckenridge April 17th with family from florida. Beginner / intermediate skiers. Was planning on staying at a resort in Peak 9 but now hearing the lift there shuts down for skiing in April ? Any advice or suggestions ? Is peak 8 a good alternative? I think they have lifts open thru April. Any resorts ski in/out at peak 8? Thanks. First time ever going to Breckenridge and need any help we can get. Thank you.

    We booked a free guided trail hike through the Cucumber Nature Preserve. Our Naturalist guide Nathan was exceptional. The 1.2 mile hike featured many species of plants along with Beaver Lodges, Bird watching and a beautiful wilderness wetland preserve. The Preserve is fed by Fens, Underground water sources. Although we did not see any Moose, they are regularly seen along with deer, elk, mink, beaver, muskrat, squirrels and coyotes. A must see in Breckenridge
