You said that you'll be in Breck from the 13th-24...is that in Aug. or Sept.? If it is in Sept.,you've missed rafting season. Most outfitters stop around the end of Aug. because the rivers get too low for rafting to be safe.

If you're in Breck the 13-24 of September, then rafting will be over - it's a spring/summer activity.

Our favorite places to eat were the Motherloaded Tavern, Columbine Cafe for breakfast and Fatty's Pizza. Check out the restaurant reviews on this site to get a better perspective. Also do a search in the Breckenridge forum since your questions have been covered in many threads.

Just got back from a week in Breck last night. We had a blast. the weather was beyond perfect. Took the Brown's Canyon trip with Performance Tours. Kate was a fantastic guide! They will pretty much close up the rafting season as far as water flow around the 15th of August because of closing the gates on the lakes above to save water.

We went last Thusday. The water flow is normally 700 cfs but due to rain was 1200 cfs, so even though the ride is not scary thrilling, it was still a great time.

We loved Blue River Bistro, but not really a family place. All of the above mentioned restaurants are great.( well, heard great things about Mother Loaded, just ran out of time) Add Empire Burgers and Giampeitro to the list as well. Try to get patio dining at lunchtime when available.
