Cheers, Dad

Our favorite gifts and activities to celebrate Dad in Breckenridge all weekend long!

Gifts for the Après-Ski Local Dad

BRECK LOCAL hats are an exclusive gift that only locals can get their hands on. Offered in a variety of colors, Papa Bear will look good and feel good as every hat purchased buys local restaurant meals for Breck locals (500 meals to date!). Order by Saturday night for guaranteed pickup in Breckenridge this weekend.

Package your Breck Local gift with his favorite local après-ski drinks. Broken Compass is open daily to fill a growler of dad's favorite brewski. Our local award-winning distillery, Breckenridge Distillery, is offering BOGO 50% off Breck spirits June 19-21 plus 1 free high-end tasting of Port, PX, 105, Reserve Blend or Double Barrel for dad & mom. Wine dad? Grab a bottle of the Old Vine Zin for your old man or drop in for an outdoor wine tasting at Continental Divide Winery located at Main Street Station.

If your dad loves boozy coffee, treat him with Jameson® Cold Brew, a perfectly balanced combination of our smooth Irish Whiskey with hints of toasted oak, dark chocolate and a rich coffee aroma. Crafted with high-quality care but without the price tag, Altos Tequila is the best go-to for margaritas.

Last but not least, we can't stop raving about the coolest growlers we've ever seen! Located at Maggie Pond Boutique, the world's most advanced growler will keep dad's beer fresh, cold and carbonated. Maggie Pond also has a variety of unique budget-friendly gifts like to-go drink ware and puffy jacket cooler fan faves.

Gifts for the Adventure Dad

Does dad love to venture outdoors? Specifically designed for trail sports, RMU's Core Pack 15L is a hydration quiver killer any adventure dad would be stoked to have. For the adventure dad that seems to have everything, check out Mountain Outfitters on Ridge St. They carry all of the best brands & know what they're talking about, so you can find the perfect gift that suits your dad's adventure style.

Our mountain paradise is filled with hiking and biking trails ranging from beginner to expert difficulty. Bike rentals for 1/2 and full day are available at ski/bike shops throughout town. Grab dad and enjoy some socially distanced quality-time outside this weekend.

Looking for something more extreme? See what everyone is raving about and experience axe throwing at Mtn Axe. It's fun, safe and entertaining for the whole family! For another activity, check out Mountain Time Escape Rooms, the most innovative and unique escape room experiences available.

Reminisce from a trip with dad or inspire your next adventure with a print from local artist, Nick Selway. Located just steps from the corner of Park & Main, Nick Selway Gallery features incredibly stunning outdoor photography from some of the most awe-inspiring landscapes in Colorado and around the nation. Sizes range from 12x18" up to 50x100".

Gifts for the Foodie Dad

Restaurants are now open with additional outdoor seating on Main Street! You can now access the list of Summer Hours of Operation for 100+ restaurants/bars in Breckenridge.

Here's a few of our local favorites that are currently open... Feeling fancy? Briar Rose Chophouse, Aurum and Hearthstone are all phenomenal, upscale options to celebrate dad. Reservations are highly recommended. Mountain Flying Fish serves some of the most exceptional sushi in Colorado under the direction of Japanese Master Chef Tetsuo-san.

Ollie's at the Dredge and Burke and Riley's is a local go-to for burgers and pub food at an affordable price. Flip Side also has some of the best mouth-watering burgers in town. Up for something new? Change it up with true Texas style BBQ at Whiskey Star.

Sancho Tacos prepares some of the best craft tacos we've ever had. They're all good, but we especially like the Al Pastor tacos. Breckenridge Tap House recently went under new ownership and boy have they delivered with 37 craft beers on tap, exotic tequilas and vintage whiskeys... not to mention gourmet Mexican food.

Although two completely different styles, Giampietro's and Piante Pizzeria both serve up incredible pizza that's worth checking out.

Gifts for the Sweet Tooth Dad

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! Breckenridge's local and unique Higgles Ice Cream has dozens of flavors available and is made fresh right here in Breckenridge. Another sweet tooth option is Rocket Fizz for the largest selection of candy and sodas.
