Breckenridge Sites

Town & Main Street – The town’s rich mining history and friendly local vibe will make you want to move here. It is seriously like you are stepping right onto a feel good American Christmas movie. Take a step back in time as you walk along Main Street, past the authentic buildings that have stood for over 100 years. Then, explore hundreds of spots that make up the best restaurantsshopping, and nightlife you can find in a ski vacation.  Given some of the peaks of the surrounding mountains are 14,000 feet or higher they are not only a spectacular sight, but they also have a big influence on snow conditions in area.  The snow conditions are perfect and can even be found very late into the season.

Accommodation in Breckenridge

Bluesky Breckenridge  – Not Normal Living loves and recommends Bluesky! A ski-in/ski-out resort, and conveniently sits between Peak 8 and Peak 9, adjacent to the Snowflake Lift and just three blocks off Main Street. The resort offers spacious Breckenridge condominiums ranging in size from one bedroom + den to four bedroom + den, nestled in beautiful alpine surroundings and located a short walking distance away from the heart of the town. The outdoor heated pool and outdoor hot tubs are very welcomed amenity after a day on the slopes.

There are many other types of accommodation that are available to travelers and will range in price like most popular Ski destinations.  Many offer easy access to the slopes but if needed there are also shuttle buses which will transport around the accommodation and the various bottom lifts.  This means you can save money and stay further away from the base of the slopes.  Or you can start or end the day at a different point on the mountain.
