A Long Weekend in Breckenridge



Description:

On August 10th, 1859, a group of prospectors, under the leadership of a man named Rupert Spalding, discovered gold in a place we now call Breckenridge. Since Breckenridge is one of America's top party towns, the locals decided that being a 150 years old was a great reason to throw the ultimate shindig. As such, the Breck 150 event will feature three exciting days of fee events and non-stop partying. Additionally, you will want to catch a performance of the Fantasticks at the Backstage Theater, a concert at the Riverwalk and a yoga class at Sacred Tree. Rest up and get ready for four days of non-stop action!

Day 1 - Breckenridge


It's a long ride from the Denver Airport, so you will probably want to rest up a bit before going out. Fortunately, the Abbett Placer Inn is the perfect place to do this. After all, if you're celebrating Victorian history, why not stay at a Victorian Inn? After you rest, take a walk to Carter Park. Walk south on French Street, and you should get there in about 5-10 minutes. Carter Park is an unexplored oasis in Breckenridge. It was once the site of the first rope tow and ski jump. Now, it serves as a sledding hill for the local school children. There's an open dog run, in case you miss your canine friends.
