Things to do in Breckenridge
Visit Historic Main Street
There’s a reason Breckenridge is often listed as one of the prettiest towns in America. Main Street is the heart of the historic district where over 200 buildings from the mining era are preserved and loved. Today they are boutiques, coffee shops, restaurants and stores. Victorian architecture was the inspiration for the miners 150 years ago and continues to define the image of Breckenridge
Breckenridge’s Peak 8 is immediately recognizable as the signature mountain of Breckenridge Ski Area. Take the free gondola to visit Peak 8, the original ski area base village. Since its founding in 1961, the Breckenridge Ski Area has expanded to include Peaks 6 through 10 along the Ten Mile Range and is consistently one of the most popular ski resorts in the U.S. Activities at the Peak 8 base area include the Alpine Slide and skiing and snowboarding in the winter.
Take a Tour
Did you know that Breckenridge was a bustling town before it was a ski resort? So how did Breckenridge come to be in the first place? Gold mining! There’s no better place to begin your understanding of the early days of Breckenridge than with a mine, ghost or historic tour. Gold fever drove men and their families to travel thousands of miles through the wilderness in hopes of hitting the motherlode in the Blue River Diggings.
Visit a Museum
From a rough and tumble mining camp, to a civilized Victorian town, to a hippie haven, and now an international resort destination, there’s history on every corner of Breckenridge. Immerse yourself in Breckenridge’s history by taking a guided tour, exploring an interactive museum or taking a mine tour.
Explore the Arts District
The Breckenridge arts and culture scene is the heartbeat of the town. The mountain community is packed with artists who find passion in their surroundings – of course, it’s not hard to be inspired here. Breckenridge Creative Arts (BreckCreate) was developed by the town to support and promote arts, culture, and creative experiences throughout Breckenridge. From quality performances, visual arts, workshops and classes, interactive festivals, historic tours and more, Breckenridge Creative Arts is a transformative force with a full lineup of opportunities to tap into any day of the week.
Give Dog Sledding a Try
Imagine mushing through a forest of beautiful spruce trees while being pulled by Siberian Huskies (and maybe a few furry kisses in between). Breckenridge offers some of the best dog sledding in Colorado, which is a great way to get out into the backcountry surrounding Breckenridge and enjoy the serene nature of a winter forest. Breckenridge dog sledding combines history and adventure to make this activity a truly unique family-friendly experience.
