Here is what Heidi has to say about her most recent trip to Breckenridge…

I’ve been visiting Breckenridge for the good part of two decades and like many Coloradans, I’ve come to love specific places in Breckenridge. However, as someone who is here to impart new information to HeidiTown citizens, I can’t get stuck in a rut, even if its a delicious rut, so on that last couple of trips, we’ve made it a point to seek out new spots to eat and stay in Breckenridge.

1. Stay at Peak 8

At the end of October, we stayed at Grand Colorado on Peak 8. This new property, located at the base of Peak 8, is undergoing its final phase of construction and will be entirely complete next year. Our room, a one bedroom suite with kitchenette and sitting room, still had that “new property” smell. I’ve stayed at a lot of properties across Colorado and Grand Colorado on Peak 8 offers some of the best amenities I’ve seen including four movie theaters complete with popcorn. Sign up for one at the front desk. Not to mention, at Grand Colorado on Peak 8, you can ski out the front door. We spent most of Sunday afternoon lounging in the sunshine in the pool area and it was fantastic.

2. Robbie’s Tavern

We grabbed lunch and drinks at Robbie’s Tavern, just below the pool area, where we encountered Cameron (aka “Cam”), one of the nicest bartenders in Breckenridge. Robbie’s serves up tavern food including a top-notch pita with addictive fries. The best part? It’s locally owned and operated. Cam makes a scrumptious bloody Mary too.

Grand Colorado on Peak 8 is located up Ski Hill Road. It’s easy to take the property’s free shuttle back and forth to town. We utilized it throughout our stay.
