Spring Break or Bust!–Breckenridge, CO

Breckenridge, CO for Spring Break you say? Why yes! While everybody else is trading in the long underwear for some skivvy swimwear, Husband and I were doing just the opposite. We set aside the flip flops and sunglasses so we could grab our boots and…well, sunglasses…it may be cold but it’s still bloody sunny! It was so great to have the change of pace and decompress from the hustle and bustle of the concrete jungle.
So Breckenridge…well I can’t think of anything I didn’t like about the place…besides the fact that it isn’t closer to us. It’s plethora of Ski/Snowboard runs is endless it seems–The beauty you are surrounded by–How the village feels when arrive for the first time at night with the welcoming warmth of the dim streets accented by the twinkle lights bordering all the cottage like buildings–The easy stroll down the streets on a winters day as snowflakes fall all around you. The ability to be in a location so close to the activity yet far enough to hear the peaceful quiet in the air……..these are a few of my favorite things….”when the dog bites, when the bee stings, when I’m feeling sad….” Breckenridge, you’ve got me breaking into song! (and if you don’t know what song of which I am referring to, then shame on you.)
What I like the most about this atmospheric village is that it isn’t just a one track sort of place. You can really do it all–Snowboard, Ski, Shop, visit the Spa, peruse art galleries, wine taste, coffee shop hop, stuff your face with french pastries, eat the best crepes this side of the Atlantic, get cozy by a fire, eat amazing meals at innovative restaurants, go dog sledding, take a hike with some snow shoes, or just walk around and taste it all. My point here is, that you are not short of options when you visit Breckenridge, and really anybody can be happy in this place. You’d have to be an absolute cynic not to be.
If you do decide to visit this lovely little place check out the home rentals on vrbo.com or airbnb.com The Resorts are lovely too, but there is nothing like having a nice house that you can get comfortable in, especially if you stay long term. I have to highly suggest the place we stayed in, it was just what we needed–great view out the front window, bright light flooding in, 2 bed 2 bath, with the location being just a quick little jaunt from the village so we were able to walk everywhere. Which is a necessity for us. Aaaaaaaand!-it has the classic soaking claw foot tub-done and done!

The ski/snowboard season is coming to a close here at the end of April, which is unfortunate for you. But that just means you can get a head start on your booking for next season. Lucky for us (not to rub it in) we got in our Breck fix for our Spring Break and are looking forward to our next visit. Maybe this time we’ll see what the summer shenanigans have to offer.
Whether it’s Breckenridge, Mexico, NYC, or even a hotel stay in the next city over, I think we all deserve a little time away to decompress from the heavy weight each day can bring sometimes. So if you haven’t taken some good ole fashion quality “me” time in the last 4 or 5 months……well then, get to book’n, what are you waiting for?!!!! But first, watch a video…
