Breckenridge Attractions & Fun

Breckenridge Colorado Attractions & FunThe town of Breckenridge, Colorado is one of the top Colorado destinations, and it’s not hard to see why.  Breckenridge attractions are many and varied, from its world renowned ski slopes in the winter to the Peak 8 Fun Park in the summer and the Frisco Marina just a few miles north of town on Lake Dillon.

The Riverwalk Center, located near the center of town, hosts numerous performances and live music throughout the year and is considered a major part of Breckenridge’s Arts District.  It is complemented by the Backstage Theatre, which offers a wide range of shows. The Riverwalk Center and Backstage Theatre both host parts of the Breckenridge Festival of Film.

Seeking spectacular scenery?  A drive up Boreas Pass Road will provide stunning aerial views of the town of Breckenridge as well as sweeping panoramas of the resort.  For even more elevation, head south of town to Hoosier Pass, which offers views of Quandary Peak, an attraction in its own right.  Quandary is one of Colorado’s “14ers” or peaks that top 14,000 feet.

If you didn’t bring a car or just don’t feel like driving, you can still get great views.  The Breckenridge Gondola runs winter and summer and provides both access to Peak 8 and great views of the town and mountain. 

If you’re more in the mood for shops and restaurants, stroll down Main Street, Breckenridge, where you’ll be treated to boutique outlets, tee shirt shops, outdoor gear shops, rental stores, and plenty of restaurants, bars, and food carts.
