Dining Passports are BACK!

Spring 2016 cover-694x1122It’s that time of year! Breckenridge Ski Resort has closed for the season but that doesn’t mean the fun has to stop. This time of year, typically referred to as “mud season”, may be deemed a slower time of year, but with that comes great deals. End of season deals include: gear, lodging, shopping and DINING. For a full compilation of Steals & Deals Breckenridge offers this time of year, click here! Although most restaurants shut down for a few weeks at a time to do some obligatory spring cleaning, most participate in the Breckenridge Restaurant Association’s Dining Passport. Enjoy fine dining at a fraction of the price during this time of year. Pair that with a killer lodging deal and you’re vacationing in Breckenridge on a shoestring.

Wondering what to do outside of your awesomely discounted lodging and half price meals? Don’t fret – Breckenridge has plenty to offer during this mud season. Click here for events going on around Breckenridge this spring!

Courtesy of Megan Alvarez

Congratulations! You’re recently engaged and about to plan the most important day of your life- no pressure or anything. Luckily, the staff at BOB has all of the details you’ll need for the ultimate Wedding Day. Why not celebrate it in the most beautiful mountain town in the Rockies?

Below, you will find the first installment of this blog series where we review the three most important categories in planning your wedding. Time to get started!

  1. Wedding Coordinators: NOONE should plan a wedding alone. Hiring a wedding coordinator in some capacity is well worth the peace of mind they will bring to your big day.
