The Perfect Breckenridge
Girls Getaway

If you’re looking for that perfect place to get all the girls together, whether it be for a bachelorette party, family girls trip, or just to sight-see with the crew, Breckenridge has it all. From yoga to bike-in movies to sunset wine tastings, here’s an inspired list of top-ranked Breckenridge summer activities for that dream vacation with your tribe. Cheers to an ultimate girls getaway!

Sweat & Bond

Explore the hundreds of miles of trails in and around Breckenridge.

Craft a beautiful balance of action, relaxation and indulgence. Begin the morning with a cool, sun-drenched road or mountain bike ride. Biking in Breckenridge is a way of life and a welcoming sport to anyone with motivation to see more and stay fit. Rent cruiser bikes and breeze along the riverside rec path or grab the latest lightweight mountain bike models and tackle a wooded intermediate trail. Take a guided fat bike tour with Breck-based outfitter Ridden and check the Breckenridge Arts District calendar for Bike-in Movie Nights and other two-wheel-friendly events.

Cherry-pick from hundreds of local trails and set out on a special waterfall or wildflower hike. Popular scenic hikes include Mohawk Lakes, McCullough Gulch and the Wheeler Trail. Have an adrenaline-thirsty crew? Go whitewater rafting or hit the ziplines and rock-climbing walls at Breckenridge Resort’s Epic Discovery.

For something a little more laid back, immerse yourselves in the incredible summer landscape with a fly fishing lesson or spend a morning playing the world-renowned Breckenridge Golf Course. Tip: Balls fly farther at 9,000 feet!

 

Reboot & Restore

Test your balance at SUP Yoga, every weekend on the Maggie Pond.

Let go of any lingering stress and bring your gals together for a rejuvenating yoga session. Breckenridge is host to a handful of studios, offering everything from mellow, melting restorative classes to challenging, heart-pumping advanced sessions. If you’re here with a wedding party, this is an excellent way to settle in and reconnect. Make the most of your time together and book a private yoga or pilates class. Or try something new and take it outside for some balance and endurance-building stand-up paddleboard yoga on Maggie Pond.

Book a well-deserved, slow-moving spa afternoon at one of Breck’s luxurious wellness centers. Favorites for massage, skincare and facials include Blue Sage Spa, Soothe Spa on Peak 7 and The Spa at Breckenridge. Harmony Health Massage incorporates reiki, an oxygen bar and harmonic sound healing.

 

Art & Shopping

Breckenridge has over 200 shops and boutiques to explore.

Walking Main Street and popping in and out of upscale boutiques, art galleries, toy and candy shops, T-shirt and book stores is a Breckenridge pastime that deserves an entire afternoon or evening. There are more than 200 stores to explore. See what grabs your eye and be sure to take frequent ice cream and coffee breaks to sit by the river in the middle of town and soak up million-dollar views.

Shop locally crafted gear and goods and head over to the Breckenridge Arts District for the latest artist-made jewelry, ceramics and more. Sign your group up for an oil painting, woodworking or metalsmithing workshop.

 

Wine & Dine

Check out one of Breckenridge’s newest restaurants, Aurum, for happy hour.

Ease into the evening with a wine tasting at Carboy Winery, Ridge Street Wine or Continental Divide Winery where you can create your own blend and bottle and label it for a memorable keepsake. Discover some of Breck’s famous patios and decks where jaw-dropping vistas meet insanely good happy hours.

When it’s time for a multicourse splurge-worthy dinner, Breckenridge’s dining scene is better than ever. A recent culinary renaissance has brought upscale steakhouses, contemporary American and Mexican, Colorado comfort food and high-end sushi next level. And on the nights when all you want is nachos, pizza and beer, we have that dialed in, too.

Nightlife is always buzzing around Breck. Bounce from brewery and distillery scenes to pubs and old-time saloons. See live music, play trivia and pool, sip absinthe or catch a show at the Backstage Theatre.

Rowdier ambiances await at the Gold Pan, Motherloaded, Burke and Riley’s, Napper Tandy’s and Rita’s. Bachelorette parties: End the night dancing to DJs at Liquid Lounge or sprawl out on Breckenridge’s largest dance floor (don’t miss the infamous dance pole) at Cecelia’s.
