Welcome to Breckenridge

One of Colorado's top ski towns, Breckenridge has an allure that goes beyond epic mountain trails that straddle the Continental Divide. In the summer, this alpine terrain is ripe for hiking and mountain biking, while one of the top things to do in Breckenridge each fall is go leaf-peeping as golden aspens begin to blanket the hillsides. “Breck,” as it’s known to locals, is also famous for its festivals, spanning art and film showcases to celebrations of its world-class craft beer and distillery scene.
