American Mountaineering Center

This is a great place to hold an event. I have hosted two large events here, one a celebration and one a fundraiser. Both were successes. Great space, good adjustable lighting, clean, lots of parking and well run. Easy to access, both from a driving perspective and getting your supplies into the event space. Having the American Alpine Club, The Colorado Mountain Club and the Colorado Trail in the building is a bonus and gave our events additional character. For outdoor people, the museum, displays, and library are fantastic. I highly recommend the venue. As we were taking down from my last event a wedding party was setting-up . By the time I left, they were already in full swing and having a fabulous party. They also made a great choice.

Epic Discovery at Breckenridge

Hmmm…not sure why the negative reviews!?! Maybe folks are expecting free admission and no lines? 😂 Our experience was awesome! Arrived at 1:30 on day 1 which meant we got to take advantage of all the great rides and scenery for 4 hours on day 1, then return on day 2 for a full day of fun without having to pay a dime more! Alpine slide, coaster, Colorado chair were some of our favorites! Also played some mini golf and did the zip lines (zips were admittedly a little disappointing since we have zipped in some amazing locales). Helpful tips – bring your own water, snacks, food else be prepared for sticker shock! $5.35 for a bottled water! Yikes! Went back on day 3 and rented mountain bikes and has a blast ripping down the mountain! Best views I’ve ever had mountain biking! Only complaint is the amount of time it took to get the bikes. There was NO line but apparently they wait until a bike is rented before they do the tuneup and safety check!?! Took at least 30 minutes to get 2 bikes. Other than that highly recommended!!!

South Park City Museum

Great Museum!! Took my teens and they seemed to really enjoy themselves! Love that it’s an open walkable museum because you are able to almost stand right in the past’s shoes. The employees seemed to really love their jobs and are so friendly! Went in on the 4th to be greeted by Uncle Sam! Spent an hour or more walking through and taking lots of pictures. Love the gift shop, another great employee. Felt really free to look around before really deciding what to get and left with both teens EXCITED to come back!

Charlie Meyers State Wildlife Area

Great day on the river. Always helps to talk to your area fly shops to see what’s getting hit. South Platte here is easily accessible. While parking lots were full, plenty of room to stake out a nice stretch.

Argo Gold Mill and Tunnel

A historical experience of how the gold rush started, and an interactive experience of how to pan for gold! The tour is well worth it as you get to explore both the giant mill and the tunnel into the mountain. Our guide was educated and made the whole thing interesting! To pan for gold at the end was really fun! My wife and I came home with 7 gold flakes. Whether you’re a tourist to the area or a local, it’s a fun date!
