Breckenridge Colorado Vacation Packages
Breckenridge, Colorado rides high on a great combination of rolling mountain backdrops, an exhaustive list of activities and a cozy ski town atmosphere. Located in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, Breckenridge Ski Resort was once a booming mining town of the Old West. However, it's not all snow and skis in the wider area every season of the year offers family-friendly events, from film festivals to its very own Oktoberfest. There are also numerous ways to step into nature, and tours through the stately Breckenridge Historic District. From hot air ballooning to white water rafting, you'll never run out of activities in this slope-side resort.
With around 25 feet of snow in the colder months, Breckenridge can't help but look and feel especially atmospheric in the winter, and whether you're into ice skating, dog sledding or straightforward downhill skiing, the town has much to offer. The snowy backcountry is peppered with Mountain Division Huts, which intrepid vacationers can use to plan a snowshoe hike or cross-country ski. Don't neglect the après-ski either: 75 restaurants run the gamut from fine sushi dining to Alpine-style coffee houses, as well as classic pub fare. Many of the hotel resorts, like Beaver Run, also offer a number of late-night hangouts.
Come in the summertime to see that sweeping Rocky horizon in full color. Breckenridge Summer Fun Park offers power trampolines, mountain biking, rock climbing walls, a human maze and a miniature golf course, while Country Boy Mine Tours gives visitors a glimpse of the town's mining history. The fast-paced action continues with summer dog sledding, whitewater rafting and zip -lining. In addition, the Breckenridge Beaver Course is a championship-designed golf course for those craving an 18-hole adventure.
This festival is a wild ride through Viking and Norse culture, on the other side of the Atlantic. From comedy night, parades and a bonfire to the crazily-themed Ullympics, the laughs keep coming during this memorable January week.
