It’s a good thing the days are longer in summer because there is a lot of fun to fit in! Breckenridge’s list of family-friendly activities is impressive. Families of all ages can have a seemingly endless list of trails to explore and thrilling activities to create new experiences. Families with older kids will love high adrenaline activities like white water rafting, zip-lining throughout the mountains, and hitting the trails for some serious views, while families with younger kids will appreciate the town’s easy access to gentle hiking trails (including a trip to the one and only neighborhood troll Isak Heartstone), parks, and fishing spots.
