Destination Colorado Focus On: Breckenridge
By Go Breck/Breckenridge CVB
Founded over 150 years ago by prospectors in search of gold (and they found it), Breckenridge offers today’s groups a whole new set of riches: both modern amenities and laid-back mountain charm.
A recent hotel conversion project brought the opening of the DoubleTree by Hilton Breckenridge. The property will offer 208 guestrooms, nine conference rooms and more. See upgrades now in the lobby and at the new fitness and business centers. Next on tap? Expect renovations at the pool facility and restaurant.
When it comes to dining, Beaver Run Resort and Conference Center steps up the game with pairing dinners, themed parties and custom meals to suit the mood and budget of any group. With over 40,000 square feet of meeting and exhibit space, Beaver Run is the largest group property in Breckenridge.
Both options sit steps from the lifts of Breckenridge Ski Resort; and just two blocks away, historic Main Street serves up year-round offerings including boutique shopping, a thriving independent restaurant scene and the culturally rich Arts District.
The mountains surrounding the town offer the perfect playground for adventure and all manner of teambuilding activities. Enjoy Breckenridge’s bountiful snowfall with dog sledding or snowmobiling. Come summer, rivers rush (think rafting!) and the ski slopes give way to hiking, biking and horseback trails. Did we mention that Breckenridge is home to the world’s only 27-hole, Jack Nicklaus-designed public golf course?
In addition to housing over 100,000 square feet of meeting space throughout the town, Breckenridge offers free in-town transportation and unique venues that embody the mountain lifestyle. Hold a unique opening ceremony in a restored stable-turned-art gallery; host a Victorian tea or cocktail reception as a spousal event; or try a teambuilding program that brings the group through some of the town’s most historic (and story-filled) buildings.
Whether working with a group of 50 or 1,500, meeting planners will find the perfect space to host an event in Breckenridge, which sits within close proximity to Denver International Airport. The town’s diverse offerings let everyone on the attendee list find fun within their comfort zone. And with the long list of group services available, planners will discover that Breckenridge delivers.

After all, GoBreck, the destination marketing organization for the Town of Breckenridge, was recently named top DMO, population under 25,000, by readers of Colorado Meetings + Events magazine. A readers’ choice award, the honor illustrates the growing strength of GoBreck within the meeting and conference industry.
