Breckenridge Resort – Summer 2010

Summer 2010

We stayed at a Beautiful Townhome at One Breckenridge Place provided by Great Western Lodging. It was perfect for my husband and two kids. We had a private hot tub on the deck and gorgeous views. It was only a walk away from the main street and all the activities. If you are looking for a private home or lodging for a family trip, I highly recommend this location.

I taped my LIVE MomTV show at this Exquisite Huckleberry House. The views were amazing and the ski lift was literally 50 feet from their backyard. It was spacious and cozy. I would love to secure the home for our next family reunion.

Our first day there we had lunch at The Empire Burger. This is not your ordinary burger joint! I had a turkey burger that was moist and delicious and my husband said his hamburger was the best he has had . It came with these amazing side sauces for your fries. I had a mango sauce and jalapeno ketchup. I highly recommend stopping by for lunch if you are in Breckenridge!

We had some time to ride our bikes and soak in our private hot tub and then we were off for dinner. We went to Mi Casa Mexican Restaurant and Cantina. I am not typically a big fan of mexican food, but this meal was delicious. It was authentic and fresh mexican food and my entire family loved it. My daughter helped our waiter make the tableside guacamole and my son loved the kids virgin strawberry margaritas. My husband got a burrito with a delicious mango sauce and I got a salad with grilled salmon. I highly recommend this restaurant! Because we loved it so much, we went back a couple nights later.

We were in for a HUGE treat when we went Summer Dogsledding at Snow Caps Sled Dogs. I had never heard of summer dogsledding, so we were definitely excited to go try it out. We drove up to a very secluded area in the woods and met the owner of the company. This is a fairly new venture but a necessity for the dogs to get some attention and exercise between winter months. We met puppies only 6 weeks old and guide dogs that have been with the company for many years. If you ever take a summer vacation to Breckenridge, this activity is a must!

It was rainy most of our trip, but we picked a gorgeous morning to head up to Peak 8 Fun Park. We all had a wonderful time going down the alpine slide and taking the chairlift up to the top of the mountain for some amazing views. My daughter loved the bungee trampoline and putt putt golf. This is a great experience for the whole family.

Unfortunately because of the rain we were not able to go on our guided hike. Breckenridge offersweekly guided hikes and historic walking tours. Next time we will definitely take advantage of this opportunity.
