With a Local

In 1859, settlers traveling west in search of riches founded the town of Breckenridge; when the first traces of gold were found, the town boomed. Today, the town and surrounding areas are filled with historical remains that tell the story of Breckenridge before it was a world-famous ski town. If there is a history buff among your group, Breck offers a wide variety of historic tours, including daily tours of an operational mine and opportunities to try gold panning.


For more information on what to do during the winter, contact the Breck Information Specialists at (877) 864-0868. While in town, stop by the Breckenridge Welcome Center at 203 S. Main Street. You can also fill out our activity request form to receive more information or view, download or order the Breck Connection Vacation Planner.
