Summer Vacation Ideas

Summit County is one of the most beautiful counties in Colorado and one of the best tourist destinations in the entire state. It’s home to Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, and Keystone, and the area surrounding Lake Dinner. You’ll be able to find many fun activities that can be enjoyed by the whole family during your stay.


The towns in Summit County have some of the best golf courses in the world. Many are championship level, but all are fun and offer a great challenge for golfers of any skill level. The terrain in this county is superb for golf and you’ll be able to take in the stunning scenery during your round. It’s easy to be distracted by the mountains and natural beauty of the area.


If you need to unwind during your trip, you’ll have plenty of opportunities. The resorts in the area are the essence of luxury. Not only will you find plenty of options for massages or spa days, but any day sitting in the mountains basking in the Colorado sun will relax you to the core.

Outdoor Sports

No trip would be complete without taking at least one hike. You’ll walk through wildflowers, take in incredible sights, and relax during an afternoon picnic. Or push yourself to climp a fourteener during your visit. It might take you hours, but setting a goal like that and reaching it brings such satisfaction. Plus, wait til you see the views from up there! Nature walks are also a popular option for those that don’t feel quite up to hiking through the mountains. These are a great way to see all of the surrounding countryside without having to worry about walking up a mountain.

You can speed things up by taking an ATV tour or even a mountain biking tour through the region. Take it to the next level on a wild whitewater rafting trip, or slow down with a relaxing canoe trip down the river. Or if you really want to have fun, there are some great Jeep tours that provide a wild, but safe and scenic ride. We recomment changing it up a little and doing things that you normally wouldn’t do, such as rock climbing or kayaking.
