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 to 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 major retail outlets 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, but we’d rather you experience it yourself without having all of the fun spoiled.
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 a plethora of world-class hiking trails for all ages and skill levels. Wintertime is also arguably the most beautiful time of year to experience these trails. The trees and mountains are covered in their beautiful white coat 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 in Broken Compass and the Breckenridge Brewery. No trip to Breckenridge is complete without a stop to indulge in one of the fine ales on tap at one or both of these hangout spots.
4. Experience the Arts District
A cultural opportunity unique only to Breckenridge, the Breckenridge Arts District is home to an incredible amount of distinct art forms and experiences. Spearheaded by the nonprofit organization BreckCreate, the arts district allows for anybody to learn painting, dancing, ceramics, photography, practicing yoga, playing music, and much more.
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 as it is home to so many cafes that 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.
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.
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.
