Summit County Summer Vacations
Summit County is known as “Colorado’s Playground” for good reason. The County is home to four world-class ski areas; four high country golf courses; Lake Dillon, which features two marinas, windsurfing, sail boating, outdoor concerts at the Lake Dillon Amphitheatre, and the infamous “Tiki Bar;” numerous tennis courts and softball fields; three rivers; fifty miles of paved bike trails; hundreds of miles of backcountry biking and hiking trails; several thousand of acres of federally designated “wilderness area;” and some of the finest fly-fishing on Earth. To top it off, Summit County receives three hundred sunny days per year! Hence, over three million visitors per year find themselves basking in the grandeur of Colorado’s Playground. This is one of the best places anywhere to blast down a whitewater river or a technical singletrack; or to simply kick back and relax on the shores of the dazzling Lake Dillon, take a quiet stroll through the Eagle’s Nest National Forest, or to peruse the many quaint shops along Main Street in Breckenridge.
