Breckenridge Real Estate & Homes for Sale in Colorado
Nestled in a beautiful spot in the Rocky Mountains, Breckenridge bills itself as "The Perfect Mountain Town" and it more than lives up to its title with beauty and fun in every season. As the Summit County seat, Breckenridge is considered the heart of one of the great mountain resort areas of not only Colorado, but all of North America. Up here you can find not only fantastic winter fun on the slopes, but summers filled with so many activities that you won't be able to keep up.
Breckenridge, located approximately 60 miles west of Denver, has a population of about 3,000 residents though in a phenomenal tourist attraction like this, the number of second homes pushes the peak population much higher. The nearby mountain resort that shares the same name is considered one of the premier resort destinations in Colorado, but the town and the resort feature a more laid-back style than glitzy resort towns like Aspen or Vail.
Breckenridge has as much to offer off the mountain as it does on any of its 146 trails. As the largest historic district in Colorado, the Town of Breckenridge features a wide variety of shops, activities, culture and attractions to entertain. This includes great restaurants and bars throughout town, as well as art galleries and plentiful shopping for those that love to browse. The town also features the daily necessities of medical clinics, pharmacies, libraries and banks.
