6 Things to Do in Breckenridge This Summer

Breckenridge Colorado


Nestled at the base of the Rocky Mountains, Breckenridge is best known for its skiing, but you are missing out if you only visit during the winter. Breckenridge is an adventure seekers paradise! From outdoor excursions to a rich history dating back to the 1800s, this mountain town offers many activities year-round. Here are 6 must-do activities for your summer itinerary. 


1. Take a walk down historic Main Street – This charming street is lined with beautiful 19th-century buildings that now house art galleries, boutiques, cozy cafés, and Mountain Time Escape Rooms! Soak in the Victorian-era vibes, browse unique local stores, and indulge in the town’s vibrant culinary scene. 

2. Visit the Breckenridge Troll – Venture into the whimsical world of Isak Heartstone, the larger-than-life troll sculpture nestled in the heart of the Rockies. This 15-foot-tall wooden troll, created by Danish artist Thomas Dambo, has captured the hearts of locals and visitors alike. Explore the surrounding trails, snap a few photos with the friendly giant, and let your imagination run wild. 

3. Try your hand at an escape room – An exciting adventure for the whole family. Mountain Time Escape Rooms offers 4 unique Breckenridge-themed rooms to try with a new theme coming this summer (stay tuned!). Alert rescuers to your snowed-in cabin after an avalanche, help a local summon and trap spirits that have been keeping him up at night, search for Bigfoot in our indoor forest, or investigate a magical oddities collection and help Zoltar get his power back. 

4. Take a Hike – Surrounded by the Rocky Mountains, Breckenridge has a variety of hiking trails for every skill level. For beginners, try Sapphire Point. This hiking loop offers great views of Lake Dillon and is perfect for all ages. Looking for views of wildflowers while you hike this summer? Try Black Powder Pass, a moderate 3.4-mile trail. For seasoned hikers, try Peaks Trail, an 8.5-mile hike (one-way) with great views and herds of elk and deer. 

5. Take in the beautiful mountain views If hiking isn’t your thing but you still want to take in the natural beauty of the mountains, there are other activities you can do. For adventure seekers, try mountain biking or whitewater rafting. For the best mountain views, the scenic chairlift ride offers 360-degree views of the mountains in all their glory. With the mountains as your backdrop, stand-up paddleboarding and kayaking offer a relaxing way to take in the views. If you want a fun and unique way to experience the mountains, try the GoldRunner Alpine Coaster or the Alpine Slide, which takes you down the mountain and through parts of the forested areas for a truly unique way to experience Breckenridge. 


6. Learn about Breckenridge’s rich history – Step back in time as you learn about the town’s gold rush origins, the iconic buildings that have stood the test of time, and the fascinating tales that have shaped Breckenridge’s history. Learn about gold panning at Lomax or take one of the city’s many walking tours. Breckenridge has quite a haunted history from its gold mining days. If you are seeking a spooky adventure, try one of the city’s haunted walking tours or the (Paranormal) Mystery of Breckenridge escape room that puts an upbeat spin on the city’s haunted past.
