Fifty Nifty United States-our checklist goes on as we attempt to accomplish our family goal of all fifty states before Row goes to college.I’ve been watching those airfare deals and pinning on my Pinterest boards so that when a deal pops up we know where to go.
This summer we checked off Colorado. I posted a recap post previously but wanted to write posts about all the special events and places we went. Posts from fellow bloggers have been instrumental in helping me have fun things to choose from on each trip and I’m happy to spread that along.
We were fortunate enough that hubs best friends have a vacation home in Breckenridge,CO. We booked an amazing deal to Denver and then made the trip up, up, up to Breckenridge. We spent one day walking around and exploring the scenic downtown area in Breckenridge which is one of the many family fun things to do in the area during the summer months-make sure you have a light jacket though.
The downtown area is scenic and quaint and loaded up wit adorable and cutesy one of a kind stores. Parking is rough but there’s also a town square area where you can park and walk a tiny ways down to all the action.
Cute outdoor spaces to sit and play.Oh and very dog friendly.
Check out the cookie shop we stopped at. We got whoopie pies.
Tons of mom and pop restaurants that are excellent.
There’s a stream that runs adjacent to the downtown area and you can go and feed the fish so bring some quarters.
Downtown Breckenridge also runs family fun art exhibits in the center of Downtown every Friday night in the summer.
Oh and did I mention-walking just for the views was enough for me. Fun, free and gorgeous.
