Top Breckenridge Restaurant Picks for Every Occasion

As the second most visited ski resort in Colorado, Breckenridge is known as a playground for snow and nature lovers. The town’s 31 lifts take skiers and snowboarders up to five peaks that provide nearly 3,000 acres of ski-able terrain. However, there is more to Breckenridge than just its famed mountains.

We caught up with Cameron Barrie, fly-fishing guide and artist by day and manager of RMU Tavern by night, to find out where the locals hang out. Read on for the best of Breckenridge’s restaurants, no matter the occasion:
