Breckenridge in summer is like your favorite big easy-chair-so comfortable you'll never want to leave. The brightly colored Victorian town is made for casual strolls and leisurely al fresco lunches. Cobalt-blue skies and sun-splashed meadows littered with bright wildflowers invite hikers to explore. Or hitch your bike onto the Colorado SuperChair for a ride to the top of Peak 8 and a white-knuckle singletrack downhill. Wile away the afternoon browsing art galleries or zooming down one of two alpine slides at the Summer Fun Park. Located at the base of Peak 8, the park's SuperPutt miniature golf course and giant two-level maze provide hours of fun. At the end of the day, watch the sun set over the Ten Mile Range as you play a twilight round of golf at Breckenridge's municipal Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course. Situated at 9,324 feet above sea level, the course plays through valleys, forests and across streams. After a round of nine, 18, or 27-another Nicklaus-designed nine are opening August 1-head into town for a concert at the Riverwalk Center. Stargazing to the classical sounds of the summer-long Music Festival guarantees sweet dreams.
