Breckenridge feels real because it is. It’s been a thriving town since 1859, during the Gold Rush and now it is still an authentic and unpretentious ski town with the character you’re looking for in a western ski trip. A variety of lodging and an eclectic array of restaurants, shops, galleries and clubs provide the perfect compliment to the abundant outdoor recreation. “Breck” is a community steeped in tradition, culture, festivals and a sense of place that enhances your stay with its fun, friendly and casual atmosphere.
Breckenridge is located in the heart of the Rockies and boasts the infrastructure of a small mountain city with a great free mountain bus system and the charm of an old mining “boom town”. It is the oldest continually occupied community in Colorado and this is evident in the atmosphere Breckenridge offers and is famous for within the ski industry.
