When deciding upon Breckenridge lodging, there is a pertinent question that needs to be asked: Do you want to stay on the mountain or in the town? Each type of Breckenridge lodging has its advantages. The on-mountain Breckenridge accommodations either provide ski-in/ski-out lodging, or accommodations that are a short walk to the lift. However, the rest of the action in Breckenridge, which includes the museums, the Backstage Theatre, The Riverwalk Center and the various bars, dance clubs, restaurants, art galleries and shops takes place in the town. Luckily, it's a small town, so you are never too far from either the mountain or the tourist attractions. Additionally, the free bus service takes visitors and locals throughout the town, and to the other Summit County towns such as Frisco, Silverthorne, Dillon and Keystone. As such, a number of other factors should be considered when choosing Breckenridge lodging.
If you want to save money on eating out, or if you are traveling with a large group or family, condos can be a cost effective form of Breckenridge lodging. However, there is one caveat. There are so many great restaurants in Breckenridge that many of the condo kitchens remain totally unused! Bed and Breakfasts are also viable options for Breckenridge accommodations. Many of them are in lovely historic homes which can be found along Ridge Street. However, when poor snow conditions lead to a bad economy in ski country, the Bed and Breakfasts are often the first to go out of business, so make sure that you have a Plan B when considering Breckenridge accommodations.
