Valentine’s Day is this Sunday and Breckenridge is the perfect place to snuggle into with your significant other. If you are like so many of us you might be saying to yourself, “Valentine’s Day? This weekend?” Why not surprise your main squeeze with a romantic getaway to Breckenridge? Here are some ideas to do Valentine’s Day in Breckenridge right.
Private Sleigh Ride: Its winter and that means it’s the perfect time to get close under blankets! How about a private sleigh ride in the heart of the Rocky Mountains? Breckenridge Sleigh Rides offers scenic rides with great views of the Ten Mile Range and the Continental Divide. If you are willing to drive a few miles down the road to Frisco, Two Below Zero offers private sleigh rides with some pretty amazing views around Lake Dillon as well.
Cross country ski or snowshoe with a picnic: If you are looking to be a little more active, then try renting cross country skis or snowshoes at the Breckenridge Nordic Center or the Gold Run Nordic Center. Both offer rentals and lessons. Before you go, stop at some of the many shops in town and pick up some cheese, wine and other delicacies for a little picnic while you are out on the trails.
Snow cat skiing: if you really want to up your game how about a seriously heavy duty powder experience consider making the trip over to Keystone. Your Breckenridge Pass is good at Keystone and you can sign up for a Snow Cat adventure. Keystone Snow Cats offer access to unparalleled powder skiing that is nearly inaccessible to most.
Flowers, wine, chocolate and jewelry: We can’t forget about the “Four Horseman of Valentine’s Day!” These are the staples of any successful Valentine’s Day! For flowers call Bloom, Petal & Bean or just swing by City Market and make your own arrangement. Add a trip to Ridge Street Wine (actually on Main Street) to pick up wine and chocolate. Take a walk down Main Street and surprise you special someone with a unique piece of Jewelry from a Breckenridge jewelry store.
Cap it off with dinner: Embrace the time honored tradition of the Valentine’s Day dinner! Breckenridge offers a fine selection of nice restaurants for all budgets. Many restaurants will be offering Valentine’s Day deals so make sure you grab a Summit Daily (free local newspaper) from one of the blue boxes all over town. There is the best source for restaurant deals. You can check a really extensive selection of local restaurants with the Breckenridge Dining Guide.
