When you’re planning a vacation to Summit County, your radar may not extend far past the ski resorts. But then, there’s Frisco: Locally owned boutiques. Top notch restaurants. A cool local bar scene. A mountain town vibe. Fun events. And, perfectly situated right smack in the middle of the major Summit County ski resorts. Frisco truly has it all. If you haven’t had a chance to explore Frisco yet, here are a few of our favorite reasons to hang out in this sweet town… And why we think you should hang out here, too.
Every town has it’s bragging rights when it comes to restaurants. So, what makes Frisco unique? Let’s start with breakfast. You’ve got the hipster scene over at Bread + Salt. The local favorite bakery at The Butterhorn. And then you have locally roasted coffee. You could literally eat your way across Main Street all day, starting with breakfast. It gets even better at lunch and for dinner, too. Bagalis, The Lost Cajun, Kemosabe, Silverheels and 5th Ave Grill – just to name a few – offer fresh menus and delightfully local options.
Being so close to Lake Dillon, and conveniently situated between the major Summit County ski resorts, Frisco is packed with opportunities to get out and play. Oh, and then there’s the Adventure Center! With an awesome tubing hill and cross country trail system in the winter, the Frisco Adventure Park offers fun for the entire family during the snowy months. And in the summer, it gets even better: boat rentals, paddleboards, kayaks, canoes, fishing, hiking trails, bike rentals, the Rec Path and so much more. And of course, you could always just enjoy a lovely stroll down Main Street, too.
