If you want to experience a ski town for the day, Breckenridge is the place to be. The scenic drive up is beautiful and the old mining towns along tell the story of Colorado’s Gold Rush history. Shop on Main Street in Breck for the latest ski and outdoor gear, or fun specialty and boutique shops. Stop along the way for a hot chocolate in a cozy cafe or a beer in one of the local breweries.
