Summer is here. That  means exploring and learning about historic Breckenridge and Summit County.

Take advantage of the slow season and take an adventure with the Breckenridge Heritage Alliance. They offer guided hikes of French Gulch and Iowa Hill twice a week, as well as walking tours of historic downtown, saloons and the Breckenridge Haunted Tour.

Museums are open, too. Popular museums include the Barney Ford House Museum; Edwin Carter Museum; Red, White and Blue Museum; and the Summit Ski Museum.

One of the facets of this organization that makes it stand out is the passionate staff involved in ensuring that each visitor has a unique and entertaining experience. Their joy in what they do is apparent in every activity.

Visit their website to learn more, www.breckheritage.com, or contact them at 970-453-9767, [email protected] If you are in town, be sure to stop by the Information Center on Main Street to discuss how you can experience the history of Breckenridge.
