Summit County, CO, Activities & Programs

If you’ve arrived here and are looking for things to do, Summit County, CO, activities will keep you busy. Lessons, classes, tours and special events are all part of Summit County programs on a regular basis. This is a community that likes to keep moving, so the logical places to seek out organized physical activities are the amenities-driven recreation centers in Breckenridge and Silverthorne. Their schedules are filled with opportunities to get your heart pumping from guided wilderness hikes, water aerobics and climbing wall instruction sessions to Taekwondo lessons and drop-in tennis clinics. Indoors and out, both the Breckenridge Heritage Alliance and Summit County Historical Society offer tours that span a range of topics relative to Western history in the 1880s. Haunted tours have grown in popularity in Breckenridge where spirits have apparently remained long after the drama of fortunes won and lost in gold mines or through saloon debauchery. Breckenridge mining history is described in detail through hikes along Washington Mine and Lomax Gulch as well as on-the-hour tours at local mines. Gold panning opportunities for young fortune hunters are always a highlight in summer. If you’re hoping to get out on Lake Dillon, pontoon boats that travel between the marinas in Frisco and Dillon provide both general and historic information on the development of both towns.
