Four Perfect Days: Vacations for Seniors

Stroll down to Main Street and grab an espresso and muffin at Clint's Coffee House before making your way up to Peak 8, where you'll find an abundance of outdoor activities. Ride to 11,059 feet on the Colorado SuperChair for picturesque views of the Ten Mile Range. Or challenge yourself on our recently-improved mini-golf course - you may even get a few tips from resident pro Tobey. Before heading back to town, check out the Alpine BBQ, serving fresh summer favorites and treats daily.

Sit back and relax as you are escorted through the high country in a hummer! You'll travel above treeline to the highest trails in the Rocky Mountains in Tiger Run's new 4X4. You'll get gorgeous views, see fields of beautiful wildflowers and occasional mountain goats, deer or elk.

Take an early evening carriage ride through town and end up at the local's favorites: Steak & Rib for a Crab Filet; the Hearthstone, famous for Colorado game; or for a more intimate setting visit the award-winning Café Alpine, located on Adams Avenue.

Sleep in and let your muscles recover from your first day in the mountains. Don't forget to drink lots of water - high altitude can dehydrate you.

Spend your afternoon on the links of our 27-hole Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course. Be sure and call to reserve your tee-time prior to your arrival in Breckenridge.

Take a break from playing with Mother Nature and paint a mountain memory on the pottery of your choice at Ready, Paint, Fire. You pick your colors and then paint, splash, doodle, dab, stamp, dribble, stencil, or dot your design on your piece! Up for an evening cocktail? Stop by the smoke-free Park Avenue Pub for a selection of fine wines and spirits.

After a hearty breakfast in the rustic charm of a local's favorite, The Prospector, dig into the town's history as you take a self-guided historical walking tour through Victorian Breckenridge, coordinated through the Summit Historical Society. Afterwards, stroll Main Street for galleries and shops of all tastes.

Need an altitude adjustment? Get a body oil wrap at Blue Sage Spa - a custom treatment designed to relieve symptoms of headache, nausea and fatigue. The body is caressed and then wrapped with a special blend of nourishing aromatic body oils to provide moisture to the skin and increase oxygenation and circulation to the tissues. Include a hydrotherapy tub with any session to warm, soothe and relax sore, tired muscles. The multiple jet action also provides lymphatic drainage to detoxify the body and promote circulation.

Enjoy an evening of LIVE theater. With more than 27 years of award-winning performances, from Shakespeare to today's most well-known playwrights, the Backstage Theatre offers shows designed for all ages and interests. After theatre, stop by The Crown on Main Street for smooth jazz and a Ghiradelli Martini.

Get an early start and view a spectacular Breckenridge sunrise from a hot air balloon. After your early rise grab a guide and head to the Upper Blue for a lesson in fly-fishing. Breckenridge has one of the most concentrated areas of excellent fly-fishing in the world. Popular catches include Brook Trout, Cutthroat Trout, Brown Trout and Rainbow Trout.

Explore the original workings of the mine as you feel, hear and smell what it was like to be a Colorado miner over 100 years ago! The Country Boy Mine offers the only authentic mine tour in Summit County. Tours are approximately 45 minutes long and run every hour on the hour, warm attire is recommended. After your tour, stroll the streets of Victorian Breckenridge and grab some fudge from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory on Main Street.

Catch Happy Hour on the deck at the Whale's Tale on Main Street for 15-cent peel n' eat shrimp, and then head over to the Riverwalk Center for a dose of the sounds of summer. Music in the mountains continues this year as the Breckenridge Music Festival presents "Sounds of Summer" at the Riverwalk Center. Performances have been assembled that are sure to strike a chord with all ages and musical tastes - from classical to contemporary, patriotic to poetic - these are sounds you'll never forget.
