Once you’ve got your supplies in Denver, it’s time to make your way up the mountains and seek shelter for the night – or nights, which all kind of depends on your budget. Because luxury villas in and around the Rocky Mountain ski resorts can get pretty posh – both in price and opulence. Of course, if you prefer to travel in your Airstream, there are RV resorts that rival even the best 4-star hotel. In Breckenridge, the Tiger Run Resort is probably the most premier RV location the whole Colorado Rocky Mountain area has to offer. The resort features numerous outdoor recreation amenities along with a spectacular clubhouse with a pool, hot tubs, fitness center, locker rooms, a game room, and laundry facilities.
Breckenridge can be an especially chic part of the Rockies (on the Colorado side), and with the exclusivity come the perks. During the winter there’s skiing, of course, but during the summer there’s golf. Take, for example, the 27-hole Jack Nicklaus-designed course at the Breckenridge Golf Club. It’s the only one of its kind in the world, and at the higher elevations, your drives will fly farther and straighter than ever before.
The Rockies are also a great place to go mountain biking, but not on your average rental bike. You’re going to want something a little more exclusive and new, like the bikes you can find at Avalanche Sports. And then it’s off to the trails, which you’ll find all over Breckenridge.
As you’d expect from a destination such as Breckenridge, fine dining can be found on almost every corner. The Briar Rose Chophouse & Saloon is a great place to find steaks as well as wild game, and for more romantic getaways, the Hearthstone Restaurant features regional American offerings served in a unique and attractive old Victorian house setting. For more nouveau cuisine, you might want to try Ember, which describes their offerings as “internationally inspired and prepared for the new American palate.”
