Things To Do in Breckenridge: Summer Activities

While huge numbers of locals and visitors first come to town to pursue wintertime sports, Breckenridge things to do in summer provide more than you can fit into a single weekend. One goal should be to find a location to take in the spectacular views of the Tenmile Range, the town and the associated valley that stretches northward. Hiking trails are rated for difficulty, and treks can lead you above 14,000 feet (the peaks often referred to as 14ers) or close to waterfalls or the ruins of cabins and gold dredges from the mid-1800s. Another popular summertime thing to do in Breckenridge is to put that little white ball into that little cup way down that fairway. The Breckenridge Golf Course is a 27-hole (par 72), Jack Nicklaus-designed marvel situated at 9,324 feet (or 2,815 meters) with some challenging roughs amidst breathtaking surroundings. Breckenridge activities during summer might require gear rentals fitted via skilled professionals to maximize your enjoyment. Local tour operators can take you off-road via ATVs, splashing in whitewater or fly-fishing. Mountain Biking is popular here with hundreds of thrilling rocky trails. At the height of summer, take the kids to the Peak 8 Fun Park to enjoy the alpine slide, Gold Runner Coaster, putt-putt golf, bungee trampolines and more. 

Lazy Summer Things to Do in Breckenridge

If you’re not an outdoor adventurer, fish-catcher or links fanatic, there are plenty of leisurely summer things to do in Breckenridge. Look for live outdoor performances on the lawn at the River Walk Center, which is also a great place for a family picnic. Stone landing steps on either side of the Blue River allow kids (and canines) to splash around. (Caution: This water is freezing with a deceivingly strong curren.) For other Breckenridge activities, tour companies can arrange gentle horseback trail rides or raft float trips that facilitate immersion in the mountain environment.
