Four reasons to plan a Breckenridge meeting
The mountain town isn't just for winter fun
1 – Close-Knit Mountain Community
When a group wants to escape from the mundane city conference or are just looking for a new destination, Breckenridge can't be beat!
Although Breckenridge is renowned for skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling and snowshoeing, the mountain town is also ideal for warm-weather fun. Visitors can head up the mountain with an abundance of easy, moderate or difficult biking and hiking trails. Participate in a few rounds of golf at the Jack Nicklaus-designed 27 hole, Breckenridge Golf Club. Reconnect with the inner child by visiting the Breckenridge Fun Park.
Attractions for the Fun Park include: zip lines, mini golf, an alpine slide, the gold runner coaster, guided hikes and Segway tours, a maze, a scenic chair lift, and much more. The town hosts great festivals and events throughout the year, no matter the season. When it is time to tuck in at night find a home at Beaver Run where we offer a variety of unit types all offering a mountain charm.
2 – Breathtaking Views
Whether you are strolling historic Breckenridge Main Street or exploring the surrounding area on any of our extensive trails you will discover a charming and vibrant town. Breck sits in a valley surrounded by mountains, so any direction there is beauty to gaze upon and admire. The town itself has a certain je ne sais quoi character to it.
The laid-back atmosphere makes any visiting group feel like a part of the community. Take in an expansive view of the Ten Mile range, a glistening high alpine lake, a National Forest or a wildflower filled meadow. The scenery changes every season. In the winter the mountains are snow covered and the slopes are in full swing. Summer brings out the amazing wildflowers and wildlife. A crisp autumn brings on the changing of the leaves. Fiery reds turn to luminous golds, signaling the return of winter and a new year.
