In Breckenridge, you will find so much more than skiing and shopping.
In fact, you can find activities for everyone of all ages and interests. If you’re looking to spend some quality time with your entire family, Breckenridge is the place to visit because it has plenty of amazing family-friendly adventures to offer.
Round up your loved ones and try one, a few, or even all of the following winter activities in Breckenridge:
1. Sledding at Carter Park
The sledding hill at Carter Park is bigger than most at 300 feet in length, and it has a few bumps to give the daredevil in your family an adrenaline rush. The hill is so big and fun that your family can easily spend a few hours sledding there. An added bonus is the dog park right next to it, where your family can hang out with the dogs whenever someone needs to catch a breather from trekking up and down the hill.
2. Ice skating at the Stephen C. West Ice Arena
At $8 per person and $4 per skate rental, your family can spend hours in the rink on a budget. If you’re lucky, you may even catch a fun event like Ullr Skate or Disco Ball Skate Night!
3. Visiting the Mountain Top Children’s Museum
This museum, which is located at the south end of Main Street, offers fascinating exhibits, creation stations, and activities for children ages 10 and under. The museum’s mission is to encourage imagination, creativity, and curiosity in children by exposing them to all kinds of fun subjects, including (but not limited to) animals, ski patrolling, outer space, color experimentation, arts and crafts, recycling, construction, dressing up, and more.
4. Spending an entire day at the Breckenridge Recreation Center
Fork over $15 per adult, $7.50 per child, $12 per senior citizen, or $38 for the whole family and enjoy 69,000 square feet of pure fun. The Breckenridge Recreation Center, which is found on Airport Road, has a gymnasium, indoor tennis courts, pools, a water slide, a racquetball court, basketball courts, a sauna, spas, a pro shop, an indoor rock climbing wall, and a child care center.
5. Hanging out at Downstairs at Eric’s
This place has it all. Children and teenagers will find delight in the many arcade games around the restaurant. Parents and grandparents will jump at the chance to sit at the bar and throw back a few beers while watching the game on one of the few TVs behind the bar. The entire family will enjoy the extensive menu that includes burgers, pizza, gyros, sandwiches, salads, and more. An evening at Downstairs at Eric’s is time well spent.
In addition to the above activities, there are many more family-fun winter activities in Breckenridge. You can look into taking an art class with your children in the Breckenridge Art District, snowshoeing, visiting the Henry Ford Museum, or exploring at the Edwin Carter Discovery Center. There is something for everyone in your family!
