Breckenridge Travel Guide

I have visited Denver area more times than I can count at this point. There are a ton of things to do, but planning can be a headache due to the nature of the city. Here are my best tips for enjoying a winter vacation to Breckenridge.

How to get there:

I always choose Denver for a winter escape because flights are always super cheap. Don’t ask me why flights are cheap, but they are SUPER CHEAP!  By super cheap, I mean typically under $100 on weekend travel roundtrip. Needless to say there are several airlines that offer nonstop flights to Denver which makes its convenient and cost effective for you!

Airlines

Southwest Airlines

United Airlines

Delta Airlines

American Airlines

Alaska Airlines

Virgin America Airlines

Spirit Airlines

jetBlue Airlines

Frontier Airlines

If you are staying in the Denver area for your trip, you can take an Uber/Lyft or rent a car to get to where you are staying. (You can use my promo codes for $$$ off your first ride: UBER –  ses07 and LYFT – CARRINGTOB1) The rental car area is very close to the airport and very little waiting time. To most hotels in Denver, it will not take more than 25 minutes to get there from the airport.

For my most recent trip, our group traveled up to Breckenridge for a Ski weekend.

How to get to Breckenridge:

Breckenridge is about 1.5-2 Hours from Denver. You can also fly into the Vail airport which about an hour from Breckenridge. If you decide not to rent a car, all the airports have private shuttles to transport passengers to the mountains. Suggested shuttle company is Summit Express, click HERE for more info.

When we arrived in Denver, we had a few hours to kill time before our AIRBNB was available. So, first things first we had to eat. Here are some food options for all the hungry’s.

Second Home

La Loma

Sassafras

Fork and Spoon

Rialto

Syrup

After we ate at Syrup, we ran a few errands and headed up the mountain.

Where to stay in Breckenridge:

Copper Mountain, Frisco, Breckenridge, and Keystone are all relatively close to one another so, choose the most bomb house in whatever city. I highly recommend renting a home through Airbnb or Homeaway to find rentals. (If you would like to get $40 off your first Airbnb rental, click HERE.) I have also used these rental companies if you want some other options:

Summit Mountain Rentals

Sky Run

 

Things to do in Breckenridge:

I loved Breckenridge because there were so many things to do besides just Skiing. The Breck Insider was my go to website for the Haps in Breckenridge. A few stops on our scheduled itinerary included:

8:00 AM: First Time Ski Lesson, More info here. $165; must rent equipment.

These are my personal favorite tips for having a fun snow trip to Breckenridge. All of the recommendations are based on things my friends and I would do and have a blast doing. Enjoy Denver/ Breckenridge and feel free to comment with any questions.

    iPad and tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just
    so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and
    she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to
    share it with someone!

    than you might be right now. You’re so intelligent.

    angles. Its like women and men aren’t fascinated
    except it’s one thing to accomplish with Woman gaga!

    Your individual stuffs nice. Always take care of it up!

    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
