The Town of Breckenridge may be small with 2010 US census showing only 4,540 year-round residents, but there is a lot going on! The Town of Breckenridge is where you can access world-class skiing just steps away, and enjoy any of our 77 bars and restaurants.
Beside the World-Class skiing and riding, Breckenridge has 18 art galleries and museums, the Riverwalk Center for performing arts, 27 holes of public golf, 2 skating rinks, 2 parks, one with a fun family sledding hill, and loads of glorious biking and hiking trails!

Breckenridge does not have the greatest parking options in the world. Between our wonderful visitors, snow stacking and limited space, there are not a lot of extra spaces out there. Most of our rental units provide only one parking space, that is even if it sleeps 12 people. Call us to find out about your parking situation before you get here. If you do have additional vehicles, here’s how to get a permit to park overnight:
The town provides overflow parking in certain lots. To receive a permit to park in these overflow lots, visit the Breckenridge Police Station at 150 Valley Brook Road for permits to park on Airport Road, or pay directly at the east lot of the ice rink. Permits can be purchased for $5 per day. Parking is either at the Ice Rink on Boreas Pass Rd. or on Airport Road. There are no other public places in Town to park over night. Shuttle service is provided to take you back into town.
That is the only option for public overnight parking. Click here to get more information on overflow parking, daily free and pay lots, and the easiest skier parking options.
Breckenridge Ski Resort consists of 5 peaks for all levels of skiers and riders. Our local staff can help you discover everything Breckenridge has to offer. We highly recommend guests to book their lift tickets in advance. Click here to get the best pricing on tickets available.
