“Cute street”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

We didn't spend much time here but what we saw was cute. Lots of little tourist shops and places to grab a cup of coffee. It isn't a very long street so it can be seen in a short amount of time. Nice to sit by the river and hear the water rush over the rocks...

“Don't go during shoulder season”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

I'm sure the shops on Main Street are nice, but so many of them were closed when we were there. We had planned our trip for earlier in the fall, but the floods bumped us out of our first choice for resort and time. Going during the shoulder season is not a good idea if you are looking for shopping and restaurants.

“Downtown Breckenridge = Little slice of heaven in the mountains”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

Spring, summer and fall in downtown Breckenridge is dreamy -- hang out at the river and watch the kids and dogs and families play on the rocks, listen to a concert in the park, eat at one of the many wonderful restaurants, enjoy the flowers (in the summer) that adorn the street, shop at one of the many souvenir shops, buy some art or photography at one of the galleries, or just sit awe-struck at the majestic mountains around you. In the center of downtown is a riverbank where kids can play as parents watch. There are some kid-friendly art sculptures that are climbable as well.

Breckenridge is our favorite day trip from Denver (leave early, come back late). My kids grew up going to Breckenridge with us many times, so the town holds a lot of special memories for us. The rec center will delight your children with fun pool slides and a climbing wall, and a family bike ride along the river will make everyone happy. When my kids were little, we spent a Mother's Day on Main Street, and the kids agreed to do a family "paint your own pottery" afternoon. We still talk about how much fun that day was. Downtown Breck hasn't changed much in 20 years, either. The town planners have been careful to preserve the charm and the small-town atmosphere, despite plenty of growth in other parts of Summit County.

Downtown Breckenridge always makes me a little teary-eyed. Our kids played on the riverbanks with the dog so many times, I can't walk down Main Street without missing the best dog we ever had, and missing those days just hanging out with our young children. Our kids are young adults now, and I dream about someday having grandchildren I can take to Breckenridge, too.
