Parking & Getting Around
One of the best things about staying in Breckenridge is how amazingly accessible everything is! Most hotels and Air Bnb’s are ski in/ski out and are a quick walk to everything downtown. If you aren’t staying within walking distance or are tired from skiing, there are tons parking lots downtown (2 hours free in the evening) and an amazing bus and trolley to take you everywhere you want to go! It is really easy to fall in love with Breckenridge.

As far as dining goes in Breckenridge, you really can’t pick wrong! Everywhere is really amazing, so make sure if there is a place you really want to go you make a reservation ahead of time, or plan to go early. Restaurants tend to fill up fast, especially on the weekends! We absolutely loved Empire Burger and Breckenridge Brewery, so make sure to give them a try.
Stroll In The Park
Make sure you don’t miss out on strolling along the Riverwalk following along the Blue River. There are so many incredible pine trees especially lit up at night, it is just the best place to spend an evening, especially with good company. Hit up the Alpine Garden around dusk for some stunning views of the Blue River, these were definitely some of our favorite pictures of the trip!
