Travel to Breckenridge, it’s Perfect in the Summer

Breckenridge, Colorado, is known as a world-class ski resort. But in the summer it transforms itself into a top rated family vacation destination. As the locals like to say, "Breckenridge: Perfect Mountain. Perfect Mountain Town. Especially in the Summer." Rent a budget timeshare in this beautiful Rocky Mountain historical town, and see how kid-friendly it is in the summer time.

Located high up in the mountains, summer temperatures here are just right, as Goldilocks would say - not too hot and not too cold. A light jacket might be a good idea for those occasional mountain thunderstorms and cool evenings, but otherwise shorts and flip-flops would be in order.

Every member of the family will find plenty of fun summer things to do in Breckenridge. Your Breckenridge timeshare resort will offer such things as swimming pools and tennis courts. The surrounding area offers hiking, horseback riding and fly fishing, amongst breathtaking mountain scenery. For mountain biking enthusiasts there are a wide network of trails of varying levels of difficulty, with the convenience of lift access on Peak 8 via the Colorado SuperChair. Maps and bike rentals are available, of course.

And you won't want to miss taking the kids to Peak 8 for the Fun Park opening June 18, 2010 (see photo). Start with the Alpine Super Slide for an exciting ride that the teens will love and even little ones as young as 2 can ride with an adult. The more experienced riders will enjoy hurtling along the Giant Slalom track with its multiple dips.

The Fun Park has a Climbing Wall that will test the strength and agility of just about everyone in the family, in a safe and user-friendly environment. With three different routes of difficulty, even a youngster that weighs at least 30 pounds can join in the fun.

Another Fun Park activity that the entire family can enjoy together is the Super Putt mini golf course. Advertised as "High Alpine Golf with a View" this is actually quite a challenging course with lots of fun twists and turns.

"AMAZE'n Breckenridge" is Colorado's largest human maze. The kids will love trying to beat the clock as they scramble through this zany two-level entanglement. The Sky Fly Power Trampoline is jumping with a twist - you'll be in a special harness with a bungee cord system. How high can you fly?! This is another activity safe for children weighing 30 pounds or more.

For kids 12 and under the Bounce House will work off some of that extra energy. And when it's time for quieter pursuits, let the kids pan for gem stones, and the entire family will enjoy a scenic chairlift ride.
