How to Spend 2 Days in Breckenridge

How to Spend 2 Days in Breckenridge

With 48 hours in Breckenridge, you can enjoy several activities that highlight the natural attractions of this Rocky Mountain hotspot, located less than two hours from Denver. Here are a few ways to build a 2-day itinerary for either winter or summer adventures.

 

Day 1: Get Active in the Mountains

**Morning:**If you’re visiting in the winter, get your rental gear together and head to the chairlifts as soon as they open to make the most of your time on Breckenridge Ski Resort’s five peaks, which provide a variety of terrain for all levels. In the summer, try stand-up paddleboarding, zip lining, or hiking to get your Rocky Mountain high.

 

**Afternoon:**Explore the downtown National Historic District, home to a variety of shops and restaurants. If you want to stay active (while also exploring the town), opt for a bike tour that introduces you to local beer and spirits at venues like Broken Compass Brewing and Breckenridge Distillery.

 

**Night:**In the winter, skiers and snowboarders head to the many bars and eateries along Main Street for well-earned drinks and dinner. If you’re visiting in the summer, try something different with an evening float on the Arkansas River to a riverside restaurant just outside of town.

 

Day 2: Discover Alpine Thrills

**Morning:**Whitewater rafting a must-do summertime adventure in Colorado, and Breckenridge’s proximity to both the Colorado and Arkansas rivers provides options that suit most visitors. Sections of the Arkansas River such as the Numbers and Browns Canyon are particularly popular, while the Colorado River offers a calmer experience suitable for beginners.

 

**Afternoon:**If you’re visiting in winter, take a break from the slopes and enjoy a snowmobiling tour that will give you a chance to enjoy the Rockies from another perspective. Or head to the Breckenridge Nordic Center to try cross-country skiing or snowshoeing—two alternatives to downhill skiing that don’t require any experience.

 

**Night:**Learn about the ghosts of Breckenridge’s Gold Rush past on an evening walking tour. You’ll learn a bit about the town’s mining history, beginning with the events of the 1880s, as you visit a variety of supposedly haunted spots.
