Breckenridge with young kids

We will be visiting Breckenridge the first week of August with our 4 year old and 17 mos old. We are staying on peak 8 at One Ski Hill Place. I need recommendations of things to do, easy scenic trail/hikes, drives, and things Breckenridge. We live in AZ, so are looking forward to lush, green scenery!

It may seem cheesy, but my kids loved the Children's Museum in Breck. Keep asking when they can go back.

Can also call the Breck Rec CEnter at 452-1734 to see if they have any kids activities going on. They had 1 or 2 days a week where they set-up something for the kids in the gym but not sure if that is a winter thing or all year round.

Gondola ride which will be right outside One Ski Hill.

Scenic Drive- head south on Breck Main St. Take a left at the last stop light leaving Breckenridge (you will see a Conoco gas station on your right), in about 10 seconds you will pass the ice arena on your right. Stay on this road (Boreas Pass). In about 3-4 miles it will become a dirt road, stay on it and it will go up and over to Como, comes out on Hwy 285, back to Fairplay and back to Breck.

Hikes with small kids- Rainbow Lake in Frisco

Frisco- Grab lunch at the Island Grill (located at the marina) then take the water taxi over to Dillon and back. You can get off and walk down to the outlet stores or around the lake (small park located up and to the right of where you get off) and catch another ride back.

Free concerts- just check the free Summit Daily newspaper for what is going on. Good one is the Thursday night one in Frisco. Really laid back, grab a pizza or something and have a picnic dinner and listen to whoever is playing.

For a good, easy hike through gorgeous scenery, follow the scenic drive instructions matteiers posted above to the ice arena. There's a trail head in the parking lot that takes you up the small hill and into a lovely valley. Not too strenuous.
