Take a drive, and see great areas of Colorado.
There has been some talk around Ed Bozarth about where we each would go for our first day trip in a new car. One of the great things about living in Denver is the abundance of great places that are easily accessed during a day trip. So in honor of Summer and great drives I am going to post a series of great day trips from Denver.
The Denver Post is a great resource for guides of Colorado and one day trips. I found this guide of Summit County on their website.
Summit County (Keystone, Frisco, Dillon, Silverthorne, Breckenridge)
Only an hour’s drive from Denver, Summit County offers a plethora of activities, from the outdoor pursuits of hiking, biking, fishing, horseback riding, climbing and golfing to indoor ones such as shopping at the outlets in Silverthorne. Meanwhile, Breckenridge is a family-oriented mountain town that’s also popular with the younger set, and so has a vibrant nightlife and more youthful feel. Another of Colorado’s former mining towns, “Breck,” as the locals call it, is the oldest continuously occupied town on the Western slope, and its still-standing historic core makes for a nice stroll into the past.
Summit County has much to do and is a quick trip up I-70. Take a day and take your new Chevy to see what Colorado has to offer!
