Breckenridge Local Guide, Part Two

One of the best parts of visiting Breckenridge for your ski vacation is that it has a thriving town at the bottom of it, rather than a resort style community.  Tons of locals live in town proper, leading to a bustling community with so much to offer besides the skiing. If you are in the mood to check out a unique local restaurant, head to Angels Hollow.  Tucked one street off the main drag, Angels Hollow has big portions of delicious Mexican - American food with a twist, and makes the best Marg in Breckenridge. If you want to have a more formal sit down style dinner, make a reservation for dinner at The Hearthstone, where incredible views of the resort only increase the experience of the great tasting locally inspired menu.  For a fun night of entertainment via arcade games, bar food, sports games on TV, and laser tag, head to Downstairs at Eric’s, where they make the best baked wings in town. After you finish up grabbing a bite to eat, throw on some night attire and check out the Brown Hotel and Bar, which recently remodeled to add a stage to their basement, making an awesome small feel concert venue.  Or, for a unique experience, go enjoy a cocktail at Rocky Mountain Underground (RMU), which is a ski shop, bike shop, and bar all in one.

Want to avoid the process of getting a rental vehicle to get you from the airport to your accommodations?  Use Summit Express, a shuttle service that offers free wifi and takes the hassle away by bringing you directly to your accommodations if you so choose. Breckenridge is in Summit County, which provides multiple free transportation services to guests and locals. The Summit Stage brings people between towns, as it is a free service provided from the county as a whole.  This allows you to check out the rest of the county such as the town of Frisco, which offers a different experience than the resort community of Breckenridge. Within the town of Breckenridge, there are many routes that will take you anywhere you want to go within a reasonable distance called the Breck Freeride.  Pro Tip: Both the Summit Stage and Breck Freeride buses offer a free app where you can track the progress of the buses coming to your stop, making it easy to understand the schedule and maps. If you come here in Winter, make sure to check the date as Ullr Fest could be happening while you are here. With the world’s longest ski shot, a parade celebration the God of Snow called Ullr, and free concerts, it is definitely worth planning your next trip around.
