Dog Days of Summer in Frisco Colorado!

It’s some of the warmest days of the year in Frisco right now with sunny skies and temperatures averaging a comfortable 75 degrees. That means all of our favorite Frisco summer activities are in full swing and people are enjoying the beautiful mountain weather. Come join in the fun in Frisco this summer!

Sailboats, kayaks, and stand up paddle boards dot the lake while cyclists and hikers enjoy the paved bike path that circles Lake Dillon. People are soaking up the sun on the patios of the local restaurants while enjoying a cold beverage and shoppers are peering through the windows of the local shops. People are wandering the Main Street of the Rockies while wearing masks and maintaining a safe physical distance from each other. Hikers are enjoying the cool mountain breeze on the dozens of local trails while their pups take in all the smells during the dog days of summer in Frisco.
