This post is a little bit different from the usual ones I have on Take Me to the World. I am a writer with Hipmunk and this is a paid assignment that I have done for them (a girl’s gotta pay the bills). This post is about some things to do in various cities in Colorado, USA. It does contain sponsored links, but was written by me.
In Breckenridge outdoor enthusiasts can ski or snowboard in the winter, or bike and hike in the summer. If you love great food you can check out the dining scene at restaurants like Relish, and Ridge Street Kitchen. The state of Colorado has a high number of craft breweries, and Breckenridge has their local brewery and pub at Breckenridge Brewery. There are year-round performances at the Breckenridge Backstage Theatre, plus local events like the Breckenridge Festival of Film in the fall and the Breckenridge Music Festival in the summer.
