Welcome to Breckenridge -
The Perfect Mountain Town!


The Town:


The Jewel in the crown of Summit County, Breckenridge has been THE destination since its beginnings in the Gold Rush of 1859. It is, first and foremost a real town. It still retains its Victorian charm, with more than 200 historic sites many dating back to those early days and still has the feel that will charm everyone who visits here.

After a hard day on the slopes, Breckenridge has much more to offer, whether you're looking for a burger and a beer, or a filet mignon and a fine wine, you'll find restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets in its quaint streets. There is also a wide selection of bars and clubs that cater to every possible whim. Many have live music with both local musicians and nationally known acts performing regularly at various venues around town.

If you need to take a day off from the rigors of the mountain Breckenridge has many other attractions to offer. From the many activities available (click on our activities pages for details), to the over 200 speciality shops offering everything from souvenirs to high fashion there's plenty to keep you entertained. Or try a relaxing for a few hours at our local recreation center featuring swimming pools, saunas, steam rooms, racketball courts, indoor climbing wall and much more.

Whatever you're looking for, from clear blue skies, to endless deep powder, partying hard, or just relaxing in spectacular surroundings. Breckenridge has it all! Isn't it time you got out to "The Mountains".
