The Colorado mountain town of Frisco, only an hour's drive from Denver, is often referred to as the "Main Street of the Rockies" - and our Summit County rentals will definitely be filled with that unique, small town, main street charm! Like Vail, Beaver Creek, and Avon, Frisco is a popular ski destination with its own laid-back style.
Things to Do in Frisco, CO
Boasting a number of restaurants, shops, bars, and other attractions that are impressive for a city its size, this Summit County community is set apart from the hubbub, but still close and easily accessible to four major ski destinations - Breckenridge, Keystone, Arapahoe Basin, and Copper Mountain. In addition, you'll also have opportunities for ice skating at Meadow Creek Park, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and even ice fishing on Dillon Reservoir when you stay in one of our Frisco vacation rentals.
A big bonus to staying at one of our Frisco condos is the free Summit Stage Shuttle which makes stops at all the nearby ski resorts, but also to many other destinations throughout the region. And if you take the shuttle to Breckenridge, from there you can explore that town just as easily on the Breckenridge Free Bus! Easily get around the area without the stress of driving your car through icy streets and snowy mountain passes.
In nice weather, one of the locals' favorite hikes is the short and easy path to Rainbow Lake. Part of the Peaks Trail, you can also keep going all the way to Breckenridge from this trail that starts just off Main Street in downtown Frisco. You'll pass through Aspen trees and pines, arriving at the lake after just under a mile. You can pack a picnic lunch for a relaxing repast or just spend time photographing the water and wildflowers. And in fall, the foliage here is simply stunning!
