Breckenridge lodging options are extensive, and Breck is known for its abundance of ski-in/ski-out choices. After a long day of skiing, be sure to check out the Rockies’ best après ski scene in this historic, hip mountain town. With over 200 restaurants, bars, and shops, you’re destined to find a good time in this unique, casual setting, not to mention some of the best skiing and hiking the Rockies have to offer.
