Summer is such a beautiful time to relax in Breckenridge. If you’ve got kiddos in tow, we’ve got some great options to keep the whole family enjoying summer break.

Epic Discovery arrives in Breckenridge in summer 2017 with interactive exploration zones, story stakes, animal ability experiences, climbing wall, Aerial Adventure Tour, zip lines and more. The summer expansion combined with the existing activities connect all ages with our national forests. During summer operating hours, mid-June through mid-September, anyone can ride the scenic BreckConnect Gondola up to the mountain for free. Toddlers and children of all ages will get a thrill out of this ride alone.

If you’re looking to view town from a horse-eye view, Breckenridge Stables offers 90-minute horseback rides that are great for first-timers and families. They’ve got over 100 horses and wranglers are prepared to match riders with a horse that best meets their ability. Although this is a nose-to-tail ride, riders will experience creek crossings, ponds and incredible views of town and the Continental Divide.
