Parents often ask me; should we travel to a ski town with kids? The short answer is yes. There are tons of great activities for kiddos at most ski resorts and Breckenridge has no shortage of fun for the whole family.
If you’re traveling with infants or toddlers, you may first ask yourself, how do I get all my baby gear to Breckenridge? The answer is, you don’t. MountainTot Gear can provide everything you need including strollers, cribs, high chairs, and toys. They deliver all your items before you arrive and come pick it up after you leave. So easy and convenient, don’t sacrifice the comforts of home.
Once you arrive in Breckenridge, you won’t be disappointed at the activities for the kids. Head on over to the Mountain Top Children’s Museum and spend some time exploring their educational exhibits. Mountain Top promotes informal learning through interactive exhibits and programs, imaginative play and engagement in active experiences for children ages 10 and under.
Looking for something more active for the entire family? Check out TrekBreck. They offer guided family snowshoe tours in the local area. You can snowshoe on a secluded trail to an abandoned mine and explore the equipment used hundreds of years ago by Colorado miners. If you can walk, you can snowshoe. This is truly an adventure the entire family can enjoy.
Maybe it’s time for some adult time away or maybe just a night out. MountainTot Sitters can help you relax and unwind by providing in-room/home babysitting and child care at your lodging location. Their sitters are all 21 or older, possess background checks and CPR certification and are all local to the area. You deserve some time to yourselves after a busy day with the kids. Let their sitters come to you.
This is just a snapshot of the activities and services available to families traveling to Breckenridge, Keystone, Copper Mountain or the surrounding area. Breckenridge is an excellent family destination, so pack the luggage and don’t forget the kids. Head to Breckenridge this winter and enjoy!
