Top 5 Things to Do in Breckenridge, Colorado in August

5 things to do around breckenridge

There are so many wonderful summer activities to take advantage of around Breckenridge in the month of August. From river rafting to hiking and biking, there are great activities for both kids and adults, so you can include the whole family.

We want to share our top 5 with you before summer is over!


#1: Raft.

With the warm weather comes warmer water! August is a great time to get on a river on Colorado. The water is a little lower but there are still plenty of splashes to be found. And unlike earlier in the season, all the advanced stretches are open so make your reservation today before the summer is over! Rafting is a great summer activity for kids and adults alike. Call The Adventure Company today to book your last great summer adventure


#2: Hike.

With most of the snow gone above tree line, August is a great month to get out into the hills. The rains in July have helped beautiful wildflowers bloom and most trails are not as crowded as kids head back to school. We recommend these two beautiful day hikes; Quandary Peak for those looking to bag a 14’er and Mohawk Lake for families looking for a more leisurely hike.


#3: Bike.

There are so many great biking trails to take advantage of in Breckenridge! You can even take your bike up the Colorado SuperChair and access over 12 miles of singletrack at Breckenridge Ski Resort! So whether you want a burly mountain bike for some hardcore trail ride or just a bike for cruising around town you will find everything you need at Breck Bike Guides and Carvers.


#4: Eat.

After rafting, hiking and biking it’s time for a hearty meal! Breckenridge has a lot of great restaurants to choose from depending on your taste and mood. If you’re just looking for something quick try the always great Crepes A La Cart. If you are looking for a sit down experience, check out the Breckenridge Dining Guide for all this great town has to offer.


#4: Drink Beer.

There is nothing like a cold, local brew after a day of playing in the mountains. This one is a no-brainer for us, so go see our friends at the Breckenridge Brewery and Broken Compass. Cheers!
