Free Things to Do in Breckenridge

As we mentioned in the video, most of what we did during our time in Breckenridge was actually FREE!

Our visits to the Edwin Carter Museum, Barney Ford Museum, and the Museum in the Breckenridge Welcome Center were all free.

Also free: riding the Breckenridge Gondola, the self-guided walking history tour and the Breckenridge Alpine Garden.

And yet, more fun free stuff: hiking and biking options are everywhere!

Explore more of Breckenridge by strolling along Main Street, riverside at Blue River Plaza or the Breckenridge Arts District.

Search for Isak Heartstone, the famous Breckenridge Troll! Isak is one of 100 wooden trolls that Danish artist Thomas Dambo has created around the world. This 15 foot tall sculpture is built of recycled wood.

Tips for Visiting Breckenridge

There is a large pay parking lot at the Breckenridge Gondola. It's an easy walk of just a couple of blocks to Main Street from there.

Most of the parking options in Breckenridge are pay to park lots. To avoid paying, consider riding your bike or walking into town on the Blue River Bikeway that runs between Breckenridge and Frisco, Colorado. Check out the Summit County Recreational Pathway System Page for all of the details on the local pathways.

We were surprised by the number of things to do in and around Breckenridge. A week just wasn't enough for us. Plan to spend more time if you can.

Summers are awesome here... you'll need a jacket!

Breckenridge is in HIGH altitude! Take your time getting here if you can so that you can acclimate slowly to the change in elevation.

On that note... if you are an RVer with an air mattress of any kind, remember to lower the air pressure in it as you climb elevation. We've heard of mattresses popping under the increased pressure.
