Breckenridge, Colorado, attracts more than three million visitors per year thanks to its abundance of attractions. There’s so much to do and see in the area, and Global Discovery Vacations member Loueva T. was nice enough to tell us about her favorite points of interest in this week’s Member Monday!
Where would you recommend a fellow member to go to…
The the restaurant, Myla Rose Saloon (at Lodge by The Blue), had great food and they put plenty on our plates.
We did lots of hiking and sightseeing.
We did some horseback riding at the American Safari Ranch in Fairplay (about 30 minute drive at most). You get to ride side by side, trot the horses a little and eat a great lunch after.
I would also recommend:
- Boreas Pass
- Blue Lakes Trail
- McCullough Gulch
- Hoosier Pass for the beauty
- South Park City in Fairplay, Colorado. They have an old west town to tour with 41 different buildings to see.
What was your favorite…
Lodge by The Blue was absolutely wonderful! Quiet area, the staff was amazing and our room was clean. The furniture looked like new, there were fans in the bedrooms as well as humidifiers.
I would recommend The Lodge by The Blue for a beautiful, quiet, relaxing vacation near Breckenridge.
Why did you choose this destination? Were you traveling for a special occasion?
We were traveling with our friends from Florida. They loved hiking up a mountain to play in the snow and throwing snow balls at each other (our favorite memory).
Any tips for a traveler going to this resort or destination? Anything you think they should bring?
Colorado is a beautiful state to see, but I would definitely recommend buying altitude vitamins and/or an oxygen dispenser (you can buy vitamins at the grocery store and oxygen is sold at resort).
How long have you been a Global Discovery Vacations member?
My husband and I have been Global members for approximately six years.
Why did you join the club?
It’s good especially when getting close to retirement age. We can now say we have visited other states in our travels and we will eventually see all of this wonderful country we live in.
How many trips have you taken using your membership?
We have traveled through Global three times and enjoyed every resort. We recently bought two more star credits as we plan to start traveling more often.
Why do you think traveling is important?
Everyone needs that break from the hustle and bustle of life to recharge and relax.
