Colorado's Kingdom

Founded in 1859 as part of the Gold Rush in the Rockies, Breckenridge boasts a main street lined with colorful wooden storefronts housing cafes and shops, giving the effect of a thriving western town from the 19th century.
Escape the urban bustle at Sawmill Reservoir and Breckenridge Golf Club. Step off the beaten path and head to Frisco Historic Park and Museum and Spruce Creek Trail. There's still lots to do: get outside with Windrider of the Rockies, contemplate the long history of High Line Railroad Park, take in the waterfront activity at Frisco Bay Marina, and go for a walk through Hoosier Pass.
