Welcome to the Town of Breckenridge!
Breckenridge is an amazing place to visit…and it’s an even better place to live. We are a small, intimate community that offers incredible world class recreation, fantastic arts, great shopping and a vibrant restaurant scene, while providing a safe, friendly and fun community for our citizens to live, work, play and raise a family.
Surrounded by the beauty and majesty of the Rocky Mountains, Breckenridge has one of the largest historic districts in the State of Colorado. Located in the historic district is a new, thriving arts campus bookended by the Riverwalk Center and the newly improved Breckenridge Theater. You can take a class, see a show or meet an artist in residence.
Of course, living in a ski town means that we are all about recreation. From the downhill experience at the Breckenridge Ski Area to our wonderful Breckenridge and Gold Run Nordic Centers and the outstanding backcountry trails, the winter has plenty to offer. And the summer is truly a joy with miles and miles of trails to hike, run and bike. And if you are a golfer, you will love our 27 hole Jack Nicklaus designed links.
While the scenery and offerings of Breckenridge are truly remarkable, they are nothing without our people. Passionate and driven, the citizens of Breckenridge, from the longtime local to the second home owner to the seasonal skier/snowboarder, make Breckenridge what it is. They are active outdoors and give of themselves to the community as docents, commission members and volunteers.
I hope you will enjoy our slice of heaven.
Mayor of Breckenridge
