When you have been active in the snow all day long, it may be easy to forget that Breckenridge has a wonderful downtown area too. Main Street can easily distract you from the slopes for a day, which gives your muscles a chance to get a well-deserved rest.
Main Street Breckenridge is about a 10-minute drive from Lodge by The Blue. Its historic area is lined with cafes, restaurants, boutiques and shops. Don’t miss some of our favorite stores for getting a unique keepsake.
Get Real Bazaar
You shouldn’t have any trouble finding something unique and local at Get Real Bazaar. The goods range from Ullr helmets, Breck Bears and tie-dye onesies to hand-knit hats, beer mitts and ponchos. There is always something fun and original for you to bring back home.
Marigold’s Farmhouse Funk and Junk
For a warm family welcome, look no further than Marigold’s. The store is operated by three sisters and one daughter. Feast your eyes on vintage antiques and handmade jewelry. It’s almost like a museum, but this one allows you to buy the items on display!
If you are into minerals and fossils, you shouldn’t skip Nature’s Own. Their knowledgeable staff can tell you all about the products, whether it’s the “Framed Fish Fossil” from Wyoming or the “Smoky Quartz” from Teller Country, Colorado. And if you’re brave (or just hungry) you can try some of the Amber Insect Candy.
Mother Janice and daughter Kristin are the proprietors of Wandering Daisy. This whimsical shop is good for scoping out clothing, art or bicycle-themed accessories. There are over a hundred artists featured at the shop, and all of their work is both unique to Wandering Daisy and Breckenridge.
Fuzziwig’s Candy Factory
Whether you are visiting Breckenridge with or without kids, Fuzziwig’s is a treat for anyone with a sweet tooth. The store has more than 400 types of candy from all over the world. Their candy may not qualify as a “keepsake” for the folks back home (because it probably won’t be around long!), but who would blame you for bringing them pecan turtles, handmade fudge or Breckenridge bourbon caramel cups?
