7 Must Do's For Any Dew Tour Visitor - Breckenridge, Colorado

The 7 Must-Do’s in Breckenridge for Any Dew Tour Visitor

Events: Festivals

The Dew Tour, one of the biggest events in all of action sports, but after a decade in Breckenridge, the Dew Tour has moved down the street to Copper Mountain.  Copper will be the spot to watch slopestyle competitions, but Breckenridge will still be the place to stay if you’re looking to experience the nightlife, entertainment, and activities a mountain town can offer.

Dew Tour Visitor Must-Do’s:

1. Experience Main Street at night

Stroll down charming Main Street to discover 100+ bars and restaurants as well as 200+retail locations.  The best part?  It’s all within walking distance!

Main Street is the main hub of energy in Breckenridge.  The Breckenridge dining scene explodes with flavor. Expect to find worldly inspired cuisines, fresh take on culinary classics and plenty of craft beer and cocktails made from our local brewers.  Between meals, take a stroll down Main Street to explore local boutiques, gear stores, art galleries, children shops and everything in between. Our specialty? Providing the latest styles and greatest gear for any outdoor outing and adventure.   If you are looking to hit the town for a night out our Dew Tour Nightlife Guide will fill you in on happy hour and late-night hotspots.

2. 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!

3. Hit the trails

We don’t mean ski trails.  Breckenridge is home to hundreds of miles of trails throughout town and nearby National Forest and there are at least a dozen ways to explore them. The stunning scenery of white-capped mountains and snow-covered trees can be enjoyed with a pair of snowshoes, cross-country skis, snowmobile, horse-drawn sleigh ride or dogsled team.  Learn more about the best winter activities in Breckenridge.

4. Have a beer at one of the two local breweries in town

Indulging in a flight of beer at Broken Compass Brewery is the perfect way to spend the afternoon

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.

5. Experience Breck’s Art & Music Scene

Breckenridge has a thriving art community. Our mountain community is packed with artists who find passion in their surroundings – of course, it’s not hard to be inspired here.  Take a self-guided walking tour through the art district to see community art and installations,  or create your own art by signing up for a class with BreckCreate.  If your interests include listening to the beat, check BreckMusic’s concert schedule or plan a night out that features a local band performance.  You can also kick back and relax at a Breckenridge Backstage Theatre performance or explore the unknown on a ghost or history tour around town.

6. Get Cozy & Embrace Hygge

Hygge (pronounced HOO-ga) is a Danish and Norwegian word for coziness and comfort, the good things in life that bring about wellness and contentment.  You’ve likely seen the buzzword blanketing books and listicles, on candles, pillows and knitted everything. This warm and fuzzy Nordic notion is about simple pleasures—from sipping tea with an old friend to connecting with your kids over a fairy-tale.  While your here, embrace Hygge and cozy up next to the best fireplaces in town, sip hot cocoa, or visit the best Breckenridge shops, destinations and experiences to help you tap into hygge this season.


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 was the host of Dew Tour for the last decade for a reason: It’s one of the biggest and best ski resorts in the country. Boasting five peaks, the tallest chairlift in North America, a record-winning park and terrain for every level, Breckenridge is hard to beat.
