We have shared the vibrant art scene in Breckenridge with you before, so we’re not at all surprised to learn Breckenridge, Colorado, was named No. 1 on the 2017 National Center for Arts Research Arts Vibrancy Index of small communities in the U.S.! This index ranks more than 900 communities across the country and our small community is number one in its category. (more…)
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. (more…)
Halloween is over, and that means we’re truly heading into the holiday season. There’s no better place to enjoy this time of year than Lodge by The Blue and the winter-loving town of Breckenridge.
It all kicks off on December 3, a busy holiday kick-off day full of events.

For Breck locals, this is what means the season is truly upon us. This all-afternoon event features individual happenings that provide tons of entertainment: Summit Dancers and Choral Society performances, Bernese Mountain Dog Parade, free hot cocoa and cookies in the Blue River Plaza, Santa makes an early visit at the Barney Ford House, official tree lighting, and an after party with pasta bar at the Village at Breckenridge are just some of the goings-on.
The world’s top ski and snowboard athletes compete in superpipe, big air and slopestyle. Stop by the Dew Tour Experience at the base of Peak 8, music in town and a local rail jam.
Are you ready for some holiday cheer? We hope you get a taste if you happen to be staying with us at Lodge by The Blue.
