If you visit Breckenridge, chances are you’re there to ski or enjoy other outdoor adventure in the Rocky Mountains. But visitors are often pleasantly surprised by the arts and culture scene that can be found in this ski town.
Next time you visit Lodge by The Blue, take a day to explore the relatively new Breckenridge Arts District. BreckCreate developed the Arts District about four years ago with a mission of bringing together studios, galleries, performance spaces, historic landmarks, public art, restaurants, cafes, and other creative businesses.
The Arts District is comprised of a network of studios, galleries, performance space, public art, restaurants and more in downtown Breckenridge. At its core is a one-acre campus of restored historic structures that now house studios and creative space.
