As if my list of places I want to visit wasn’t long enough, we’ve been going through out Lonely Planet book to see if there is anywhere we’ve missed! When choosing our honeymoon there were a few places that came up over and over again, mostly places in Asia, Canada and the United States of America.
That’s not really a surprise, but here’s one place that was in our top 8, Breckenridge.
Okay, why did nobody tell me this was a thing?! If you’re ever having a bad day, just Google ‘Summer dog sledding Breckenridge‘, and I promise you you’ll feel better. The dogs at Snow Cap Sled Dogs require year round training, so it doesn’t need to be snowy to go on a sled ride!
Cost ranges from $20 to $75 per person depending on the tour, whether you just want to meet the little pups or whether you’d like to go on a full expedition. Booking is required to avoid disappointment, because I know i’d be REALLY disappointed if I was in the area and didn’t get a chance to do this.
Gondolas & ski lifts
I’m probably a little bias here, because as most of you already know, my best friend asked me to marry him at the top of a mountain over-looking the Alps after getting a cable car. The views from being tens of thousands of feet in the sky is absolutely incredible, and you don’t go home with sore legs. Most importantly, it’s perfect when you don’t have much time spare but you want to enjoy the beautiful views from the top of a mountain.
The Breckenridge gondola is 7,592 feet long and takes a quick 10 minutes from town to the base of Peak 8. The best thing about the Breckenridge gondola is that it’s completely free! There’s absolutely no reason not to go up and you can do up more than once. Don’t forget your wallet though because there are restaurants and a pub at the top.
