With so much to see and do in Breckenridge every summer, choosing which adventures to go on can be a challenge in itself. If you need some help planning your next trip, check our Breckenridge itinerary, below:
Get on the water
If you’re an adrenaline junkie looking for a thrilling rafting adventure, you’re in luck! One of the most popular water sports in Breckenridge is white water rafting on one of its surrounding rivers. You can choose from a range of white water rafting trips which accommodate all levels and types of white water adventures. We recommend waking up early and getting on the water. If you aren’t brave enough to tackle huge waves, you can always opt for a mellow white water experience to take in the breathtaking mountain views and local wildlife.
Make your own souvenir
The New Arts District campus offers fantastic classes including drawing, dance and hands-on crafts. Why not make your very own a souvenir instead of buying one? Select your class and spend the rest of the morning making jewellery, painting a terra cotta pot or trying wire bending to create a jewellery organiser. With so many classes on offer, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
Explore our mountain town on two wheels
In the afternoon, experience our town on two wheels! Breckenridge is 100% bike-friendly and completely bike crazy. Head on one of our epic mountain trails or, if you’d rather just take in the views, follow the seven mile Blue River paved recreation path. Breckenridge is built with bikes in mind and we also have a brand new bike park where riders of all ages and abilities can practice their skills.
Go on a sunset hike
The seamless paths which run throughout town and beyond, are the real reason why Breckenridge’s locals and visitors love it so much. After dinner, head on a sunset walk to admire Breck’s picture-postcard scenery as the sun starts to set. Be sure to pack your camera as Breck has some of the most beautiful sunsets in the world.
