Fantastic food and a great experience. Aurum is one of the more expensive restaurants in town, but it is well worth it if you’re looking for an amazing meal.

The Breckenridge Distillery is another favorite of ours when we’re looking for great food and a fun atmosphere. We should note that the only alcoholic beverages available are cocktails made with Breckenridge Distillery spirits. They’re fantastic drinks, but no wine or beer is available.

Sightseeing

Head over to Lake Dillon in the summer for a fun day on the water. Boat and kayak rentals are available, but be sure to book in advance! There is a small beach if you want to just hang out and relax near the water. There is a restaurant right off the water in the Frisco Marina if you want food or drinks.

Råd om byen

Sådan kommer du omkring

Getting Around Town

Having a vehicle is a must when visiting Breckenridge, but Uber and Uber Ski are available if you want to head in to town without having to worry about driving back home. Make sure you have 4WD/AWD when snow is possible (October to May). If 4WD/AWD is not an option, AutoSocks are the next best option. Napa Auto in Frisco usually has plenty in stock. You can also order off of Amazon in advance of your trip.
Skikke og kultur

Attire

Breckenridge is a pretty casual town. A sweater and nice jeans would be considered dressy almost everywhere here. You’ll mainly see people walking around in t-shirts in the summer and flannel or ski gear in the winter.

What to Pack

Make sure you bring warm clothes, even when traveling in the summer. Highs occasionally get in to the low 80’s in the summer, but most of the time summer highs are in the 70’s. Summer lows are often in the 50s, so a sweatshirt or light jacket will allow you to enjoy the fire pit at night!

Prepare for High Altitude

To state the obvious, you’ll be at high altitudes in Breckenridge. Make sure you’re well hydrated before and during your stay to help avoid altitude sickness.
