Breckenridge on Foot

Breckenridge is a terrific destination to explore on foot. In fact, the town of 4,540 features a National Historic District that includes more than 200 historic buildings, many of which date back to the late 19th century. Today, most of the structures have been turned into pleasant restaurants, shops, and museums – all of which contribute towards a perfect honeymoon day filled with new discoveries.

After visiting some of the town’s iconic structures along Main St. and Lincoln Avenue, make your next detour to the Breckenridge Arts District. Don’t miss the Riverwalk Performing Arts Center or the Backstage Theatre. Both are home to live music, performances, and a number of cultural events throughout the year.

When your feet have had enough walking for the week, head to one of the region’s notable spas for a revitalizing body treatment. Blue Sage Spa is conveniently located downtown and offers a wide variety of styles, including couples’ treatments and chocolate therapy.
