It’s not ALL about the food in Breckenridge! Make sure you save some time to explore the beautiful historic downtown district and the many options for unique gifts, outdoor gear and more. The shops offer a wide array of options for all budgets. There are plenty of t-shirt and traditional tourist shops to get your gifts for friends and family, as well as many unique shops that truly are local gems.
In Breckenridge, locals believe in supporting businesses owned by local people. You will be pleasantly surprised how many shops you will walk into where you are greeted with a smile, by the owner of that business. We take pride in supporting one another and are willing to spend a little extra to avoid chains and giant corporations. You will be delightfully surprised at how kind, helpful, and appreciative these local entrepreneurs are to have your business.
If you are a deal hunter, like me, the mud-season is the best time for you. When things are winding down in the Spring (Late April-June) and in the late Fall (October to Thanksgiving) many of the stores are preparing for the flip in season and have all kinds of great deals on last season’s gear.
Have fun while shopping in Breckenridge, CO. Most stores are open from 10-6 or 10-8 during the Winter and Summer, with rental shops usually opening around 8. We deal with a lot of not so pleasant tourists, who can be rude and demanding. Slow down! Take your time, be polite and have some fun while supporting local business!
