First time in Breckinridge, should we visit other towns too?

I can't find much info online regarding day trips around breckenridge. Anyone have recommendations on other ski resorts, towns, things we should see?

Shelly:

Cimarron is fine. There are a couple of units on the ground/sub ground level I might avoid.

Underground parking, elevator, walk to town, 3-4 minute flat walk to Quicksilver lift & their is a free Breck bus stop just across the street.

All in all, a good complex in a good location.

If you want to get closer to the slopes, for $$$ comparison sake, check out Trails End (mostly 1 or 2 bdrm units) or a Cedars unit if you are looking for a 3 bdrm or bigger. If you are looking at Cimmaron then I assume you are in the 1 or 2 bdrm range.

Thanks again Matt- we have arrived and are in C108 on the first floor- I was nervous at first- but the unit is beautiful! We were in Tara last year and My Husband stayed at Trail's End last Feb when he was here- this is by far the nicest and most spacious unit- hot tub is close- underground parking is great.

I appreciate your info. Oh- I also learned there are 2 ski instructors from Illinois named Chris- ours was blond and is a twin.......that's all I know.

We may run to Vail for a day- I cannot ski- so I hope there is something to do here- like the main street here.....

Thanks again

If your fam has another non-skiing day and are looking for a day trip, here are some suggestions:

1) Hot Springs

*can go to Buena Vista where they have either Mt. Princeton Hot Springs or Cottonwood

*can drive to Glendwood Springs taking in the beautiful Glenwood canyon and go to their hot springs.

2) Colorado Springs

-tour Air Force Academy, Garden of the Gods or take a ride up to the top of Pikes Peak (14,000 feet plus) on the Cog Railroad.

locally- make sure to wander around the outlet stores in Silverthorne. Can get to them via that bus system that is just on the other side of the street of Cimmaron.

Enjoy.
