Breckenridge Recommendations

Breck Local Picks!

EAT & DRINK

AURUM: We love this place year round. Happy Hour is amazing, probably our favorite Happy Hour in town. Our favorite apps are the cauliflower and duck wings. You might even catch some live music.

 

BRECKENRIDGE DISTILLERY : With handcrafted cocktails and an award - winning chef, dining in Breck doesn’t get much better than this! Go for Happy Hour or a full lunch or dinner. We love the pork rinds (yes!) and the Brussels sprouts hash. My personal favorite is the Breckenridge Bour bon.

 

COOL RIVER CAFÉ : Head to Cool River Café for amazing and quick breakfast or lunch options. Breakfast burritos and the pork tacos are our faves. GIAMPIETRO : This is our favorite Italian food and pizza place. They sell pizza by the slice for those n ot as hungry. We like the Italian cobb salad and pizza, of course. The penne arrabiatta is also a favorite.

 

BLUE MOOSE : This is the best local breakfast joint serving up breakfast with fresh ingredients. Pretty standard bacon and eggs fare here. **We re commend using Open Table and making your dinner reservations well in advance, especially during very busy times. Not all restaurants accept reservations

EXPLORE IN THE WINTER

SKIING (of course!) : With nearly endless skiing options in Summit County, you can ski Breck, Arapahoe Basin (A-Basin), Keystone or Copper Mountain. I personally love the blue groomers on Peak 9 in Breck.

 

DOGSLEDDING :Check out Good Times Adventures! This is a fantastic family option for the non-skiers in your family. Goodtimesadventures.com for more information.

 

SNOW SHOEING OR NORDIC SKIING: There’s nothing better than a cross - country ski lesson at the Gold Run Nordic Center to get you enjoying the sun and snow. Rental equipment is available. Both the Breckenridge and Gold Run Nordic Centers offer snowshoe terrain and rentals as well.

 

TUBING : This is a great one for families. Maybe you’re all skied out and still want to get outside to spend time with your kids! Look up the Frisco Adventure Park at townoffrisco.com
