Zip lined for the 1st time with my family on Spring Break. The crew which had two ladies and four guys were so much fun and so friendly and helpful! Felt safe and secure! Enjoyed it immensely!!!! Went fast and efficient!!!

The following day we did the Performance Snowmobile Tour with John. He was awesome!!! I was a little worried about my 15 year old daughter driving her first snowmobile, but with a whole bunch of practice runs, she mastered it! We were a little cold going up the mountain, snow was pelting our faces, so John stopped and loaned us his extra face masks and goggles he had with him in his backpack. Then we could really enjoy the rest of our adventure. It was so incredible!! And we purchased the photo package which now we will have memories forever!

Frisco Historic Park and Museum

The Frisco Historic Park & Museum preserves and promotes the Town of Frisco's heritage and history by presenting an excellent educational museum experience to the community and its visitors, connecting the past, present and future to the world around us.

Reviewed By RICART75 - Peru, Indiana

This museum village is very well presented. The staff person who welcomed us was friendly and informative.
Admission is free (though donations are very much appreciated). The local community/government realizing the benefit of supporting this asset, wisely helps with funding.
The main building houses recently upgraded displays, providing a wealth of information on the area. The railroad diorama is not only a nice perspective, but it's fun to watch.
The easily accessible out buildings are well conceived (with the audio & video narratives being an added plus); and offer one a sense of what life must have been here 100-150 years ago.
One of the joys of travel, for us, is learning about the historic uniqueness (and similarities) of communities across the country. This attraction certainly fits that objective.
This museum is a definite "must stop", if one is visiting the area.

Vail Pass Path

Reviewed By Joe R - Independence, Missouri

This is a must-do if you're in Frisco or Breckenridge. We rented our bikes from Pioneer Sports, and they'll fit you to your bike and load them up on the trailer and take you to the top of Vail Pass. Don't worry about pedaling too much, because basically you're going to be putting the brakes on most of the way down! But, don't rush it because there are plenty of places to stop and take a picture, or just relax. It's a beautiful ride, and one you won't want to miss. Towards the bottom, you'll pass through Copper Village, and then go on into the town of Frisco a short distance later. Ride into and around Frisco to explore the town, and grab lunch or dinner. For a longer ride, you can cross Hwy 9 and take the path around Dillon lake which is another amazing trip on the bicycle. Don't miss it!

Copper Mountain

Frisco or San Francisco. Denver or Dallas. It doesn't matter where you're from. If you've skied here, you've been raised on some of the best Colorado has to offer. For generations, people have valued a down-to-earth ski experience that puts friends, family and a relaxed mountain atmosphere above all else. It's why the Colorado front range has always considered Copper the home team, and why families from across the globe call Copper home. The place you go for a mountain experience that's refreshingly void of pretense. Wherever your home address may be, if you've skied here, you've been raised on Colorado. Welcome home.

It doesn't matter if your an expert or a beginner, Copper Mountain is fantastic with terrain challenges for everyone. Modern lifts and friendly staff, and most import good snow!
The village restaurants and bars are surrounded by condo's with views of the mountain. Fresco is just down the road for more bars, restaurants and all amenities. If your into shopping Silverthorne has a massive outlet mall. It's also a great base to visit surround ski fields.

Vail Recreation Path

This seven-mile, paved path meanders through alpine fields, aspen groves and Vail's picturesque villages.

Reviewed By Janet R - Lafayette, Colorado

The Vail Bike Path does meander through Vail village along the creek (as many other reviewers have covered) which is very scenic. The path continues east out of town by the golf course and continues UP to Vail Pass (about 13-14 miles east of town). As you can imagine this is a strenuous bike path, running parallel to I-70, mostly in the forest, but there a few sections where the path is very close to I-70. For the very ambitious, the bike path continues over the pass through copper Mountain ski resort and onto Frisco and Breckenridge. From the center Vail Village all the way to Breck would be approximately 40 miles.

Frisco Adventure Park

The Frisco Adventure Park is minutes from Frisco's charming Main Street, and in the winter, hosts a lift assisted tubing hill and a beginner ski/ride hill, as well as over 45k of cross-country ski/snowshoe trails and horse drawn sleigh ride dinners. The beginner ski/ride hill located adjacent to the tubing hill offers lessons taught by Copper Mountain instructors in the most laid back and easy going environment possible- a friendly surface lift to get you up the hill, a cozy lodge, free parking right next to the hill and instructors who will help you graduate to the "big mountain" at Copper. But remember- you can tackle this hill without instructors if you choose, and it is perfect for kids and adults alike. The Adventure Park sits on the beautiful Frisco Peninsula and is surrounded by Dillon Reservoir affording unforgettable water and mountain views in every direction. And in the summer, the Frisco Adventure Park boasts great free amenities including miles of mountain biking/hiking/running trails, a bike park, a skate park and a disc golf course. Camping is also available on National Forest Service land on the Peninsula. The Adventure Park Day Lodge offers free bathrooms and a comfortable base camp for activities year-round and hosts special and private events including weddings, family reunions, bike/running races and birthdays.

It was so much fun! We went to the earliest session at 10 am and it wasn't crowded at all. However, 11 am session already had a crowd.
Tubing is really fun and the first couple of rides are so exiting and full of adrenaline, especially when the staff spins you. But how already was mentioned before, it gets boring after 30 min. 1 hour was more than enough for us. The magic carpet ride up the hill takes a while. And even though we didn't have to wait to take a ride down the hill, we did a total of 8 rides down in 1 hour.

Broken Compass Brewery & Tap House

Reviewed By MplsLakes - Minneapolis, Minnesota

Cozy place outside of downtown. Very much a 'locals' stop - doesn't have the same feel as the busy restaurants (and in-town brewery). LOVED the dog friendliness (plenty of off-leash shop-dogs and regulars). Only had a couple of the brews - good.

Great little area that takes up as much time as you want it too. More shops then you could possible see of all different types. Lots of walking and some incline changes.
