Destinations / North America

Breckenridge is one of Colorado’s most popular ski towns, so a visit here can get pricey. However, it’s not impossible to experience the town for less than $100. There are plenty of cheap eats and fun things to do that don’t cost a thing.


Begin with breakfast at Daylight Donuts for a quick carb fill-up for only $10. Next, make your way to the center of town to purchase tickets for the Walking History Tour of town. The 90-minute adventure highlights the region’s history as a gold mining town and ski destination, and only costs $10 per adult. They even offer a tour that includes the Breckenridge Distillery.


As one of the state’s top ski towns, a visit to the Summit Ski Museum is a must. The museum showcases historic photos and equipment from the early days, alongside an exhibit featuring the 10th Mountain Division, a military unit that fought on skis in World War II. Entrance is free, but a $5 donation is suggested.


Stop by Soupz On for a quick refill of soups or sandwiches for only $15.


If you’re feeling lightheaded due to the altitude, Breckenridge has just the thing you need. The O2 Lounge Oxygen Bar allows patrons to pull up a stool and suck on some fresh air. A 5-minute session with 90 percent oxygen costs only $12.


Whether you’re in town during winter or summer, you’ll want to get outside city limits and experience the raw beauty of the region. Head to the nearest trailhead — two of the easiest are Hoosier Pass and Spruce Creek Loops — and experience what the Colorado mountains truly have to offer.


When back in town take a stroll along Main Street before stopping for dinner at Blue River Bistro. The restaurant features upscale dining at affordable prices, so set aside $30 for a meal.
