Breckenridge Local Guide, Part Two
Breckenridge Local Guide
Breckenridge is an old mining town high in the Rockies that has now transitioned to a family friendly town that offers world class skiing, excellent nightlife, arts and culture, and tons of other things to do off the hill. Set high up at almost 10,000 feet above sea level, the winter months stay cold enough to have consistently great skiing conditions throughout the entire season. That high altitude also means that summer days in Breckenridge are very rarely above 80 degrees, making it a great place to escape the heat. With the largest number of skier visits in the country every year, there are a ton of reasons to come see what all the hype is about!
