When gold was discovered along the Blue River in the 1800s, miners flocked to Breckenridge to seek their fortune. Today, skiers and snowboarders head to Breckenridge seeking something almost as valuable: the perfect mountain town.
While the town’s Victorian architecture and designation as Colorado’s largest historic district make a trip to Breck an aesthetically appealing and historically enriching experience, the array of activities—from powder and groomers to shopping, dining and nightlife—keeps things exciting. Breckenridge has its own pulse, and visitors feel it as soon as they arrive.
Use Denver International Airport (DIA). Five hundred daily flights come and go at DIA, incorporating over 20 major carriers.
Breckenridge is located 104 miles west of DIA via I-70. Use exit 203 to Frisco and then Highway 9 for the final 10 miles into Breck.
Colorado Mountain Express is a good bet, so try them at 970-926-9800; www.ridecme.com. Or stretch out from DIA with Vail Coach (970-477-0001; www.vailcoach.com). Got a big group? Contact Arrow Stage Lines (800-497-6060; www.arrowstagelines.com). Powderhound Transport is a private shuttle company that also offers taxi service in the Summit County area.
