Four Perfect Days: Couples Vacation

Dining out in Breckenridge

From taking in the breathtaking views atop our four picturesque peaks to strolling down charming Main Street, Breckenridge makes the perfect place for a couples vacation. Browse our Four Perfect Days itinerary and start planning your romantic getaway in the Rocky Mountains.

Grab an apple cinnamon bagel and coffee from Cool River Coffee House to get your motor running your first day in Breckenridge. It's located on Main Street, but hidden behind the Swiss Haven along the riverwalk. Then, head over to one of four Breckenridge Sports locations in town where you can pick up your ski or board rentals or get your own equipment tuned. (Tip: Save time and money by renting online). Spend the morning warming up your snow legs on the greens and blues of Peaks 8 & 9. Or, explore the mountain on one of the free mountain tours. Tours are open to intermediate skiers and above and depart daily at 10:00 AM from the Beaver Run and Peak 8 base areas.

Make some turns and then make your way to Vista Haus, at the top of the Colorado SuperChair. Here you'll find food court style lunches and fantastic views of the Continental Divide. Then, refine your skills or learn a new sport like snowboarding or telemarking with the Breckenridge Ski & Snowboard School.

The Breckenridge Brewery, at the south end of Main Street, is one of the local's favorite spots. Watch as award-winning beers are handcrafted by the brewers or dine on excellent pub fare at reasonable prices. After dinner, live it up a little and head a few doors down to Burke & Riley's for a true-poured Guinness. It's one of the most down-to-earth, friendly watering holes around. Whether sitting outside huddled around the fire pit or stewing among the warm, rich mahogany of the interior, you're sure to meet a few locals, or perhaps even the owners!

Don't miss Daylight Donuts’ Daylight Special on the north end of Main Street to jump start your second day in Breckenridge. Dine on eggs, bacon and a giant pancake—all for just $3.79! Then, ride to the Continental Divide on your snowmobile to experience breathtaking panoramic views of the Rocky Mountains. Tours include experienced guides, snowmobiles with hand warmers, easy operation instruction and plenty of playtime in mountain meadows.

Have a late lunch at the Blue River Bistro where onion straws are the hot ticket as an appetizer, followed by Penne with Rock Shrimp. Then, spend the afternoon exploring all that Breckenridge has to offer. Wander the streets of this Victorian town for fabulous shopping. Stop by Milagros of Colorado for heavenly handmade soaps, Canary in a Clothesmine for funky women’s fashions and Art on a Whim for laugh-out-loud and local artwork.

Take a seat at Mountain Flying Fish's sushi bar for a most impressive dining experience above 9600 feet. The House Special roll is a must-try. Make your way over to Ridge Street for an evening of LIVE theatre at the Backstage Theatre. Presenting award-winning live theatre since 1974 from Shakespeare to today's most well-known playwrights, the Backstage Theatre offers shows designed for all ages and interests. After the theatre, stop by The Crown on Main Street for a relaxing nightcap featuring the Ghiradelli Martini.

Rise and shine with Pecan Cinnamon Raisin French Toast or Huevos Rancheros at the Blue Moose, voted "Best Breakfast in Summit County." After your early rise, try something new for a change! Put away your skis and give snowboarding or telemarking a go. The Quicksilver Super6 chairlift services excellent learning terrain for the beginner at any snowsport.

By noon, you'll be craving charbroiled favorites at Ten Mile Station, located at the top of the Quicksilver Super6 chairlift. Then, wear a hard hat and hear the drills as you venture 1,000 feet into a century old, authentic gold mine—the Country Boy Mine. Tours are approximately 45 minutes long every hour on the hour. Be sure to meet one of the friendly burros that roam the mine site.

Take an early evening carriage ride through town and end up at Steak & Rib where steaks and ribs are prime, hence the name, but the Crab Filet rivals the Chipotle Stuffed Shrimp as the locals’ favorite. If you're up for a night on the town, head south on Main Street where you'll find Liquid Lounge. Albeit small, it is now Breckenridge's premier night club and draws quite the weekend crowd, complete with DJ Crisp on Saturday nights.

Grab a scrumptious chocolate chip muffin from Clints Coffee House and make your way back up the hill so you can play on your favorite runs one more time. Be sure to catch a ride on the highest chairlift in North America! The new Imperial Express SuperChair reaches 12,840 feet and accesses 400 acres of famed expert and advanced intermediate terrain previously only accessible by a long hike.

Kudos are in order for Empire Burger, Breck's first "real" burger joint, which is located at the south end of Main Street in La Cima Mall. Aside from the obvious, this trendy eatery features hand-cut fries, oh-so-tasty onion rings and chocolate malts that might as well be dessert. Then, go dogsledding! Mush your team of Siberian Huskies on a thrilling ride through the Arapahoe National Forest or just snuggle back under the blankets and leave the driving to the pros. Or, perhaps you'd rather not brave the elements at all. Head over to Sacred Tree on Ridge Street, where a deep-tissue massage is on the menu after an exhilarating morning of skiing or riding.

Hungry, but don't want to go out? Have Gourmet Cabby deliver fare directly to your door. After you've had your fix, finish off your Breckenridge experience with the latest Indy film at the Speakeasy; Breck's only movie theatre is now open seven days a week!
