The Dew Tour, one of the biggest events in all of action sports, is back in Breckenridge! This event brings visitors from all over the world to the beautiful town we call home. Visitors will be able to indulge in everything that we are fortunate enough to experience on a daily basis. We here at the tourism office have compiled a list of 7 absolute must-do’s that will help you get the most out of your trip in our beautiful town:
Dew Tour Visitor Must-Do’s:
1. Experience Main Street at night
Main Street is the main hub of energy in Breckenridge. From boutique shops to restaurants featuring every imaginable cuisine to fun bars and everything in between. We could go on forever about all of the experiences that Main Street offers; go check it out for yourself!
2. Snowshoe hike on one of Breckenridge’s popular hiking trails
Hiking is quintessential to the Breckenridge experience. Nestled high up in the Rocky Mountains between the Front Range and the Ten Mile Range, Breckenridge is home to world-class hiking trails for all ages and skill levels. Winter-time is also arguably the most beautiful time of year to experience these trails, as the trees and mountains are covered in a coat pillowy of snow, and the air is crisp and clean. Anybody who has experienced a snowshoe hike in Breckenridge will tell you that this is a can’t-miss activity.
3. Have a beer at one of the two local breweries in town
Breckenridge boasts two local, award-winning breweries: Broken Compass and the Breckenridge Brewery. No trip to Breckenridge is complete without a stop to refuel and unwind. Our favorites? The Chili Pepper Pale Ale from Broken Compass and the Oatmeal Stout from Breckenridge Brewery. Broken Compass even offers a free shuttle for all of their guests.
4. Experience the Arts District
A cultural opportunity unique only to Breckenridge, the Breckenridge Arts District is home to an incredible amount of art forms and experiences. Spearheaded by the nonprofit organization BreckCreate, the arts district makes it easy for anybody to learn painting, dancing, ceramics, photography, practicing yoga, playing music, and much more. They also host events all year long. Check out their calendar!
5. Enjoy a pastry and hot chocolate at one of our local cafes
No mountain town is a true mountain town unless it’s home to loads of great cafes. Breckenridge is no exception to this rule. With so many cafes, not all can be listed in just one paragraph. A few notable ones include: Cool River Coffee House, Clint’s Bakery, The Crown, Cabin Coffee, Breckfast at the Hanger, Amazing Grace and Cuppa Joe. But here’s something to remember- they’re all experts so no matter where you go, you’re sure to be satisfied.
6. Take a Ride on the BreckConnect Gondola
No trip to Breckenridge is complete without taking a ride on the gondola. The main form of transportation between the town and the ski resort (and in this case, the Dew Tour events) offers unparalleled views of the Blue River Valley, as well as the surrounding mountains. See if you can spot some Nordic skiers below you or even a moose!
7. Ski/Snowboard at Breckenridge Ski Resort!
The last recommendation on this list is the most obvious one, but it still needs to be emphasized. Breckenridge Ski Resort is the annual host of the Dew Tour for a reason: It’s one of the biggest and best ski resorts in the country. With peak 6 recently added, we now are home to five peaks, totaling 2,908 acres of ski-able terrain.
