|Breckenridge was built as a mining town in the 1860's but since then Breckenridge has turned into one of the premiere skiing destinations in the country. Sitting in a high mountain valley, the summer and winter activities are endless. Other than your typical ski in ski out package, there are winter fishing packages, sleigh rides, snowmobile tours, and a local award-winning theatre. In the summer, enjoy touring around in a beautiful alpine town, playing golf, hiking, camping, biking, fishing, kayaking, horseback riding, and shopping. Breckenridge has a wide variety of restaurants for every palate, and one of the most famous breweries in the state, the Breckenridge Brewery.
