The second most visited ski resort in Colorado, Breckenridge is a playground for the snow and nature lovers. There are 31 lifts taking skiers and snowboarders up to the five peaks that provide nearly 3,000 acres of skiable area.There is more than skiing to the town whose rich history is dotted with mining and whose Main Street is laced with Victorian era homes over 100 years old.

From breakfast joints like the iconic Daylight Doughnuts where the staff is friendly and the breakfast burritos filling to coffee shops like Cuppa Joe where the baristas make some of the best lattes around; from casual crepes right off the main drag  at Crepes a la Cart to creative dishes at hot spot Breckenridge Distillery Restaurant, there is something for every taste and every time of the day.

Note that these spots are listed alphabetically. If we missed your favorite, send a message down the tipline explaining why it should be considered for this guide.
