Top 10 Attractions in Breckenridge

10. Country Boy Mine

You probably didn’t come to Breckenridge to ride a 55-foot slide or pet a small burro (that’s a donkey), but that’s because you didn’t know you could. At this Top Ten Breckenridge landmark, come Shoot the Chute, pan for gold, tour the old ore mines, and mourn the fact that you totally missed out on this in your childhood. Open May 25 - Sept 5, Mon-Fri 10:30 AM - 2:15 PM. Tours on the hour from 11 AM - 1 PM.

9. Quandary Peak

This Class 1 (easy) “14er” (14,000+ft peak) is a prime opportunity to stretch your legs and test your acclimatization, or determine how best to explain to your insurance company why there was a mountain goat perched on top of your rental car (it’s happened). Two-wheel drive friendly and 20 minutes away, the decision whether to climb is no Quandary! Top 10 Tip: climb early, avoid storms, and plan carefully.

8. Snow Sculpture

Have you ever wondered what kind of snowman you could build with a 12-foot-tall, 20-ton block of snow? Us either. But with only 65 hours to compete, teams from around the world use hand tools to craft gigantic sculptures that remain on display for a week at this Top 10 Breckenridge attraction, so you can simultaneously marvel at their artistry and wonder if their parents are proud of them. Plus who knows, maybe there’s a Jamaican snow-sculpting team! Occurs annually late Jan - early Feb.

7. Heritage Alliance

Ghosts, witches brew, saloons, tombstones… what do these have in common? You’re right! They’re Top 10 Breckenridge walking tours! Or you can do the Breck thing and ski tour, or sign up for the paranormal investigation tour if you’re into fright-crapping your pants.

6. Boreas Pass Road

Located on the continental divide, this Top 10 Breckenridge attraction is an easily accessible dirt road that grants access to the spectacular views Breckenridge is known for. The winding road climbs to over 11,000 feet and originally served wagons trucking in for the gold rush. Plan your drive for the fall to experience the vibrant aspens in their full glory. Open summer months only. 

5. Vail Pass Path

If you’re the kind of vacationer who likes to punish yourself, this roughly 10-mile ride from Vail climbs nearly 2,000 vertical feet before dropping down into Copper. Or you can love yourself instead by renting bikes in Frisco, taking a shuttle to the trailhead, and riding completely downhill! That’s a beer-worthy workout right there, who wants to sweat on vacation?

4. Black Powder Trail

This short 3.4-mile roundtrip Top Ten Breckenridge hike gently climbs to over 12,000 ft and is rated for beginners. You won’t be sure whether it’s the views or the altitude taking your breath away! (Answer: it’s both.) Energetic hikers can summit the nearby 13ers, Mts. Baldy and Boreas, while everyone else stands around wondering why even standing around is hard to do. Bring water and snacks! Dog-friendly trail.

3. Rafting & Zipline


If you like your water as white as your knuckles, then Gold Rush Rafting & Cliffside Zipline have you covered. Zip across the Douglas fir and pine treetops on your way to a final 450 plunge back to the Arkansas Valley Adventures picnic area for a quick lunch at this Top 10 Breckenridge attraction. You’re gonna need that extra energy as you battle the whitecaps of the roiling Arkansas river on your mighty raft. Less than an hour from Breckenridge, this one can’t be missed. 

2. Summer Fun Park

Whoever named this Top 10 Breckenridge landmark was certainly short and to the point: this park is open in the summers and - you guessed it - fun! Ziplining, Alpine Slide, Gold Runner rollercoaster, maze, bounce house, climbing wall, mini golf, bungee trampoline, tubing, ropes course, gemstone panning, yes the list does go on. Hop on the gondola and ride up Peak 8! Open daily June 10 - Sept 5, 9:30 AM - 5:30 PM.

1. Ski Resort

One of the western hemisphere’s most visited ski resorts, Breckenridge Ski Resort spans five peaks (aptly named 10, 9, 8, 7, and 6) and operates 31 lifts. Hit the slopes on your snowboard or skis and be prepared to talk smack about whichever one you’re not on (you’ll fit right in). Advice: don’t get knocked over by the chairlift, we’ve heard that’s embarrassing…
