Breckenridge, Colo.

Breckenridge boasts over 40 miles of biking and hiking trails fit for those looking to enjoy the great outdoors sans humidity. Cooler temperatures at higher elevations means you can skip the sticky summer feeling and enjoy mountain views over a dinner of pan-seared scallops at Relish. Go local at the Breckenridge Brewery with fine Colorado ales like Agave Wheat and Summerbright, their seasonal special. Don’t miss Rocky Mountain Cupcakes, where flavors like chocolate marshmallow and banana cream pie are made fresh, daily.
