The galleries, shops, bars and dining establishments along Breckenridge's Main Street have lined the street for more than a century, and are a great place to stop for a meal, a drink or some souvenirs. Local favorites include Park & Main, which specializes in breakfast, sandwiches, espresso and wine, and Empire Burger, one of the best burger spots in town. To see a play, visitors can head to Main Street's Backstage Theatre

Although a charming central street is not necessarily unique to Breckenridge, one recent reviewer calls the town's Main Street "one of the best." With shops that appeal to people of all budgets, Main Street accommodates a variety of travelers. However, more than one person recommends making sure your parking meter is topped up; otherwise, you'll likely get a ticket. To avoid worrying about feeding a meter, utilize the free underground parking provided for customers. You'll also find a handful of hotels on Main Street – a perfect place to hang your hat if you like being in the center of the action. For more information, visit Main Street's website

#2 Carter Park

The best sledding hill in town is found at Carter Park, and it's a popular spot for the young or young at heart. When the snow melts, the park boasts a handful of hiking trails, four tennis courts, baseball diamonds and a sand volleyball court, as well as a playground and lots of green space. There's even a dog park.

Many travelers call Carter Park a hidden gem, especially since there is no sledding allowed at Breckenridge Ski Resort. One visitor says that although there are other Colorado ski destinations that are cheaper, her family returns to Breckenridge because of this sledding hill, which is perfect for everyone from toddlers to seniors. Plus, families also appreciated the clean restroom facilities in the park's pavilion.
