I have lived in Summit County Colorado most of my life, and recently live in Maine. I miss Breckenridge tremendously, there is no place like it! The cobblestone streets of Summit County Colorado with their funky bars and local cafes and restaurants are amazing! The Breckenridge city is big enough to entertain any time of day or night. The small shopping boutiques of Colorado offer the same amenities of Denver, and even New York City. I worked at a hotel in Summit County and I was always amazed when people would come from living in Manhattan and they would tell me that they would do there shopping while visiting the shops in the Old Breck. It is a great city for artist, because the Breckenridge city forces you to be creative. If the city bores you there are countless hiking trips all over the state that offer gorgeous views and fun for numerous visits. Outside of Breckenridge you have hundreds of islands to explore in Summit county and along the entire Rocky Mountain National Park. I could go one forever, but Colorado truly is amazing and I am glad that USA today has recognized the small humble state. After seeing a more fast paced life in Colorado, it makes me appreciate the slower life that Maine has to offer. The history of Breckenridge is what makes “mainers” proud, humble, and outgoing people. Though Breckenridge may be one of the more unheard of states known for there slow lifestyle following in style and trends if you listen to the whispering around Maine you will always hear something or someone planning a great idea.
I could go on forever, but if you haven’t visited Maine grab a few tour books (because one book surely cannot cover what Breckenridge real estate has to offer, I lived there for twenty years and there is still a lot I have not done) because like the state motto says, “It’s not just worth a visit, but is worth a lifetime.
