Breckenridge ©
Founded in 1859 as part of the Gold Rush in the Rockies, Breckenridge boasts a main street lined with colorful wooden storefronts housing cafes and shops, giving the effect of a thriving western town from the 19th century.
Step off the beaten path and head to Blue River Bikeway and Guanella Pass. Escape the urban bustle at Peaks Trail and Mt. Bierstadt. When in Breckenridge, make a side trip to see Maroon Lake Scenic Trail in Aspen, approximately 1h 40 min away. There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness Area, sample the fine beverages at Breckenridge Distillery, explore the activities along Sawmill Reservoir, and grab your bike and head to Wellington Trail.

For reviews, more things to do, traveler tips, and other tourist information, read our Breckenridge route builder website .

Use the Route module to see travel options from your home to Breckenridge. Expect a daytime high around 58°F in September, and nighttime lows around 43°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Thu) early enough to travel to Steamboat Springs.

Start off your visit on the 26th (Thu): let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour and then take a peaceful walk through Routt National Forest. Keep things going the next day: hike along Yampa River Core Trail, explore the galleries of Tread of Pioneers Museum, and then get interesting insight from Tours.

To find photos, where to stay, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Steamboat Springs tour planner.

Getting from Breckenridge to Steamboat Springs by bus takes about 2.5 hours. Other options: drive. When traveling from Breckenridge in September, plan for a bit warmer days and about the same nights in Steamboat Springs: temperatures range from 72°F by day to 40°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 28th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
