The Happening Breckenridge Restaurant Game
Breck pulls in a couple million visitors every winter and tons more during the summer, so the Breckenridge restaurant game has to be strong to keep people fed. And strong it is. One of the most impressive aspects is that 85% of all the dining in Breck is on Main Street. The other 15% is on the next street over from Main (Ridge Street), so you just need to get yourself to Main and you can access all the Breck has to offer. From great burgers and pizza to Colorado Mexican to Steakhouses and comfort food. Most of the cuisine is geared toward families and the young champions of the sport, offering to help fuel the next day’s adventure with proteins and carbs. Better still, if you can’t find what you are looking for in town, Frisco is just a short 10 minutes away where you can escape some of the crowds and find something local and slow to cool down after burning it up all day on the downhills. Below are some of the ones that we have visited, but there are tons more.
