Breckenridge, Colorado

Breckenridge’s rich history is full of gold finds and mining, exploration and adventure, brothels and saloons, booms and busts. Founded in 1859 by a small group of prospectors, the town’s Gold Rush brought droves of settlers seeking their fortunes. Though not all found gold, each discovered the beauty of the Ten Mile Range and the bounty of the landscape. Prospectors discovered gold when they founded Breckenridge in 1859. Today’s riches come in the form of casual mountain charm. And of course, all that snow and sunshine!

As one of the nation’s premier year-round destinations, Breckenridge offers an incredible selection of activities that help you unleash your sense of adventure or unwind from a hectic schedule. Either way, don’t be surprised when you make new friends that feel like old ones.

After all, the community prides itself on its inviting nature. See it first-hand when you explore downtown Breckenridge. Still need motivation? Consider Breck’s 300 days of sunshine (and 300 inches of snow!) your anytime invitation.
