All About Breckenridge

Located at the base of the Tenmile Range in the Rocky Mountains, Breckenridge is the quintessential, high-altitude Colorado mountain town. Chances are if you’ve heard of Breckenridge, it’s because Breckenridge ranks as one of the best and most popular ski mountains in the world. But Breckenridge is much more than just downhill skiing. Alpine activities extend far beyond the slopes — and beyond the wintertime — with equally acclaimed mountain biking, exceptional hiking, birdwatching, scenic drives, horseback riding, rafting, and kayaking, and just about any outdoor activity you can think of that can be done in mountainous terrain. The town of Breckenridge itself is steeped in history owing to the Pikes Peak Gold Rush of 1859 (and all the mining operations that sprouted up with it), and its historical district is one of the largest and most fascinating in the state.

The best time to stay in a vacation rental in Breckenridge

There really is no bad time of year to visit Breckenridge. Each season offers something for outdoor enthusiasts, alpine aficionados, and committed vacationers alike, though winter is the true superhero season. Once the snow flurries start, skiers, snowboarders, sledders, sleighers, and cross-country alpiners get excited, anticipating yet another stellar season of snowbound fun and activity. Beyond that, spring in the Rockies is beautiful, as the snowmelt begins and the forests and glades become a flurry of natural activity. Summer is a huge draw as well, with all of the countless winter activities traded in for their summertime counterparts. Finally, the fall offers that perfect respite from the frenzy of the summer, as both locals and visitors settle in at various Breckenridge vacation rental homes.
