Things to Do in Breckenridge: Summer

Local’s will tell you, “They came for winters but stayed for the summers.”

Ask any Breckenridge local and they’ll tell you that the biggest reason they love to live here is summer. The weather is perfect. Days in the mid-70s with lots of sunshine and a predictable afternoon shower. Low humidity, few bugs and a laid-back mountain vibe that makes you feel right at home. Then there’s the amount of fun to be had. We fill our summers with hiking, biking, fishing, rafting, kayaking, paddleboarding….the list is endless.  And when we’re not getting after it on the trails, we’re dancing at concerts, hanging at festivals and cruising the local farmers market and art fairs. Summers are so fun in Breckenridge, you won’t even miss the snow.

Things to Do in Breckenridge: Fall

Gold makes a comeback every fall.

We’re still known for our gold. Fall means cooler temperatures and gorgeous colors on the mountains, making it the perfect time to escape the city and visit Breckenridge. The mountains showcase a shift from green to gold as the aspens don their beautiful but brief finery. During a Breckenridge Fall, autumn brings a crispness to the air and the opportunity to cozy up in the evening. Though the days are shorter, there’s still plenty to fill your days in our mountain town.

Things to Do in Breckenridge: Winter + Spring

Endless adventures await in winter.

“Hibernation” is not a word included in a Breck resident’s winter/spring vocabulary. In fact, you’d better go ahead and make a Breckenridge bucket list so that you can try and fit everything in—a memorable experience awaits around every street corner and trail in this historical mountain Kingdom. Don’t worry — we have enough hot cocoa, crackling fireplaces and WiFi to reward you while you share all your post-able accomplishments.
