Think of Frisco, Main Street to the Rockies, as your base camp to the Rocky Mountains. Frisco’s location, right at the epicenter of Summit County near Breckenridge, Dillon and Copper Mountain, makes it a natural trailhead to adventure.
Frisco is located within a 30 minute drive of six of Colorado’s world-class ski resorts:
And throughout the spring, summer and fall, visitors can find numerous options for camping, hiking, biking, fishing, rafting and boating.
Frisco’s Main Street features unique shops and boutiques, offering out of the box shopping and great bars and restaurants. On the west end of Main Street Mount Royal looms large and to the east the Frisco Bay Marina serves as the gateway to Dillon Reservoir. Frisco hosts festivals such at the Colorado BBQ Challenge and 4th of July celebrations, as well as recreation events such as the Frisco Triathlon and the Run the Rockies Half Marathon and 10k. It is hard to figure out what to do first in any season much less decide which season is your favorite.
