The discovery of gold first drew 19th century pioneers to the magnificent high mountain valley of Breckenridge in Colorado. The gold reserves eventually dried up, but Breckenridge is still drawing the crowds, except now they come to holiday in Breckenridge for the “white gold”: the powder snow that people use for all kinds of funmore
Breckenridge for Ski fun - Michealle Rondoe. Date of travel: Feb 2009
Breckenridge's best feature is the mountain. There is a lot of variety within a very wide ski area. I found the town to be surprisingly upretentious and with a young and vibrant feel although it is dotted with historic buildings. The downtown shops were great for shopping but too many condos instead of hotels gave much of the place a residential air. Check out Breckenridge Brewery for some great after hours beer and food. And check out three20south for after after hours partying. Breckengridge has a unique character which I have found increasinly rare in cookie cutter development of ski resort towns.
