Breckenridge
Tucked in against Colorado’s Tenmile Mountain Range in the Arapaho National Forest, Breckenridge was founded during the gold rush of 1859—in fact, the largest gold nugget in the state, weighing more than 13 pounds, was discovered here in 1887. Today its well-preserved Victorian-era downtown is home to trendy shops and tasty eateries that occupy the colorful Victorian buildings in all seasons. In wintertime, the ski area sports 34 lifts, a free gondola, and nearly 3,000 acres of skiable terrain; in warmer months, the area is popular for fishing, hiking, and mountain biking.
