Living the good life: Relaxing luxuriously in Breckenridge
What kind of summer adventurer are you? Part 5 of 5

You’ve traveled to some fabulous places and, when it comes to vacation, you enjoy splurging on the people and things you love. Nothing beats kicking back in pure luxury.

Here’s how to plan an amenity-stacked, uber-pampering Breckenridge visit.

High-level lodging

If your idea of heaven is having the highest level of service and amenities at your fingertips, then the beautiful resort property Crystal Peak Lodge is your address. Perched next to the BreckConnect Gondola on Peak 7 for easy access to town or the Peak 8 Fun Park, the property offers spacious condos with fully equipped kitchens and lavish furnishings, along with access to hot tubs, fitness areas, personalized concierge services and much more.

Just a half block off Main Street, the Village at Breckenridge Resort is a stone’s throw from Breck’s boutique shops and gourmet restaurants. Choose from studios to four-bedroom suites, soak in four outdoor hot tubs and the spacious pool. Park the car for the duration of your visit and ride their complimentary shuttle. Use the Lodging Finder to secure your perfect Breckenridge accommodations.

Top-notch dining
Looking to indulge on delicious meals built around creative menus? Make it a progressive experience and begin with oysters from SouthRidge Seafood, move on to martinis and appetizers (try the honey and cashew encrusted brie) at Blue River Bistro, and treat yourself to a leisurely dinner of high-end contemporary cuisine at Modis, Relish or Ember.

For something more low key, try the stone hearth oven pizza from Sevens. Or, watch the sunset from your private balcony with a stellar bottle of wine and gourmet cheese from Ridge Street Wine.

Special experiences
