About Breckenridge, CO / Additional Info

Built upon 150 years of rich history, the charming, relaxed Breckenridge is a true year-round destination. Breckenridge is perhaps best known for its Breckenridge Ski Resort; consistently ranked as a top 10 ski resort in North America, Breckenridge Ski Resort features 2,358 acres of terrain, four mountain peaks, four terrain parks and three half-pipes. The city’s average annual snowfall of 300 inches and 300 days of sunshine per year make it an all-season playground, with such recreation opportunities beyond skiing and snowboarding as hiking, biking, fly fishing, snowshoeing, golfing, dogsledding and many more adventures.

In addition to its ski hills, Breckenridge’s welcoming vibe expands to its Victorian downtown district, which celebrates the town’s rich history and welcomes guests to Main Street’s more than 200 shops, as well as a variety of eateries along Main Street, Ridge Street and South Park Avenue. The town’s museums and Welcome Center showcase Breckenridge’s history and its origins as a town founded to serve area miners when gold was first discovered in the region in 1859. Breckenridge became the permanent county seat in 1861 and experienced a hydraulic mining boom in the early 1870s, which was then followed by dredge mining. World War II silenced dredge mining, and it wasn’t until 1961 that Breckenridge experienced its next boom, with the opening of its ski area and the unveiling of vast transportation improvements.

Today, Breckenridge features the largest historic district in the state, home to more than 350 historic structures. Historic attractions and sites include the Edwin Carter Discovery Center, which honors the life and legacy of the naturalist who amassed a taxidermy collection of more than 3,500 Rocky Mountain animal specimens, which now forms the nucleus of the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. The Barney Ford Victorian Home honors an escaped slave, prominent entrepreneur and Colorado black civil rights leader, with each room in the home dedicated to a different part of Ford’s life. Both the Edwin Carter Discovery Center and Barney Ford Victorian Home welcome indoor and outdoor private events.

Breckenridge is home to a number of recreation and adventure sites, including the Breckenridge Recreation Center. Boasting such outdoor features as tennis courts, a whitewater kayak park and a skate park, and such indoor features as climbing walls and an aquatic area, the Breckenridge Recreation Center also offers group room and field rentals, as well as teambuilding activities. Groups can hold golf outings and private events at the Breckenridge Golf Club, home to the only municipal Jack Nicklaus, 27-hole golf course in the world. The par 72 course snakes through streams, native grasses, wetlands and more, and hugs a 15,000-square-foot clubhouse with a restaurant and lounge, deck seating, award-winning shop and outdoor tented function space.

Skiing Breckenridge’s slopes and exploring its heritage sites, shops and recreation areas is sure to ramp up anyone’s appetite, so it’s a good thing that Breckenridge is home to a variety of restaurants specializing in everything from Colorado artisan fare to sushi, Italian and classic French cuisine.
