Several days of thrills on the water, spills on the slopes or chills from high altitude hiking can lead to the kind of exhaustion that points to some relaxing retail therapy. If you’re more inclined to spas and window shopping, the variety of Summit County shops allows you to spend a full day browsing the mix of sporting goods, Western wear, art galleries and funky boutiques along Main Streets in Breckenridge and Frisco. Shoppers determined to try on name brand fashions are destined to find their match at the Outlets in Silverthorne. Still, that special item, a must have gift or souvenir to remind you of your trip to Summit County shops, can remain elusive. Narrowing down your list to a few special selections can be a challenge, but fortunately shopping locally is easy when stores are located close together or grouped by themes. If your vacation party is undecided about where to find their must have item, the free local bus system provides transportation to retail centers in the county.
