Breckenridge Walking Tour; Of course Breckenridge is a popular ski area, but during the mining era skis were merely a form of transportation. Our tour takes you back in time to those days when Breckenridge was a Victorian mining town. You’ll meet a ghost who haunts a popular restaurant, a miner with a heart of gold, an escaped slave who became a successful restaurateur and a minister who traveled from town to town on his skis to deliver both the mail and the word of God. You’ll also discover the history behind many of the storefronts on Main Street and visit the Victorian homes of French and Harris Street. Explore these and more with your expert personal guide, available 24/7 on your schedule!

"Exciting, a whole new concept"
Around The World Travel Radio

"Even though I am a local, I thoroughly enjoyed visiting and learning more about the history of the landmarks. The author's interest in the area comes through in his engaging style of writing. Being able to complete the tour at my own pace made it even
more enjoyable."
Flora Savitzky (Researcher)

"When the conference ended, I stayed in town on my own and used T4M's self-guided tour to decide which things in town I wanted to visit and what to see/do there. The guide was right every step of the way. Bottom line, this guide helped me make the most of my time in town."
Ed Wetschler, SATW & Editor of Tripitini
