Located in the central Rockies of Colorado, the historic mining town of Breckenridge plays host to over 1.65 million skier visits per year and thousands flock to this town in the summer as well. Known for winter and summer festivals, this unique mountain town sets the stage for Colorado vacations.
Here are some tips for getting to the town and ski resort.
First you need to decide whether you will be flying in, or driving from your home state. Many of the surrounding states such as Nebraska, Kansas, New Mexico, Utah, Wyoming and even Missouri all offer quick access via well maintained roads. Driving from out of state can be half the fun. As you approach the mountains of Colorado you will inevitably feel that rush of excitement as the snowcapped peaks of Mt. Albert, Long's Peak, Pikes Peak and many other 14ers rise high into the Colorado sky.
Another option is to fly direct to Denver, Eagle Airport or Colorado Springs. Once you arrive, you will most likely rent a car or take a shuttle. Both have their advantages.
Take advantage of inexpensive car rentals at the Denver International Airport for the freedom of mobility. With your own car rental, you can stop at any of the charming mountain towns along the way from Denver to Breckenridge. You will pass by Georgetown, Silverthorne, Dillon, Keystone, and even Copper Mountain is within easy striking distance of Breckenridge. Purchasing a Breckenridge car rental is a great choice for those looking for the freedom to explore nearby communities.
Shuttles depart on the hour, every hour, from Denver International Airport and provide guests with “kick-back-and-relax" comfort. Simply give your driver your luggage and let one of the many shuttle operators drive you through the stunning canyon of Interstate 70. Best of all, you get to soak up the views while on route. Shuttle drivers will drop you off at the door step of your Breckenridge hotel or condo.
