Sleep in and let your muscles recover from your first day in Breckenridge. High altitude can make you dehydrated so don't forget to drink plenty of water. A hearty dose of carbohydrates is also a good prescription for making the most out of a vacation at 9600 feet. Stop by Columbine Cafe, where breakfast is served all day and you can order an over-the-top cinnamon roll or pancake as big as your head! 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. Then, get on your gear, explore the mountain, discover the trees, find a powder stash. Make your way to the Trygve's Terrain Park on Peak 8, where features are small and perfect for learning the next hip trick.
Hit up Empire Burger for lunch. Breckenridge's first "real" burger joint is located at the south end of Main Street in La Cima Mall. Aside from the obvious, this trendy hangout features hand-cut fries, oh-so-tasty onion rings and chocolate malts that might as well be dessert. From there, head down the stairs just outside the back of the restaurant, cross the street, head up another set of stairs and from there you'll be able to see the free sledding hill at Carter Park!
Sure it's a brewery, but that doesn't mean you can't try their ever-popular beer battered fish and chips or brewery wings! After opening in 1990, the Breckenridge Brewery, located at the south end of Main Street, has quickly become one of the local favorites. The under 21 crowd can even enjoy pool there nightly until 10:00 PM.
