Secret Stash - September Celebrates Fall In Breckenridge

Posted by Breckenridge Associates Real Estate on Sunday, September 11th, 2011 at 1:56pm.

September is a favorite month for so many of us locals. It's a great time to take a breather between busy seasons, but also the absolute perfect month to truly enjoy where we live and the transition from summer to winter. Whether taking the time to view the "Colorado gold" of changing leaves on Boreas Pass, drinking a brew on Main Street for Oktoberfest or touring Summit County's finest homes during the Parade of Homes, you're sure to want to spend some time in Breckenridge this September.

Breckenridge's Peak Foliage:
View the golden leaves of the high country during peak foliage times of the 3rd and 4th weeks of September. Leaf peepers will love driving through the natural tunnel of trees on Boreas Road for prime peeping! The tunnel of trees is a true highlight of this adventure, an outing everyone will enjoy this fall.

Directions to/from Boreas Pass in Breckenridge:
Head south through Breckenridge onto Boreas Pass Road by taking a left at the stoplight on the south side of town. You will come to a dirt road after 3.5 miles. Stay on the dirt road and you’ll be surrounded by beautiful Colorado gold as you navigate through tunnels of Aspens and gradually above timberline. Learn some history along the way – the road follows an abandoned railroad grade, which was the original route of the Denver, South Park and Pacific Railroad. You can turn around at any time, or continue approximately 11 miles on the dirt road to the town of Como. Enjoy the foliage and incredible views of the Continental Divide. To get back to Breckenridge from Como, take Highway 285 south to Highway 9/Fairplay. Follow the highway through Fairplay, Alma and back to Breckenridge.

Breckenridge's Oktoberfest:
Breckenridge Oktoberfest is where Munich meets the mountains, September 16-18. The official start of a great weekend in Breckenridge begins Friday with the Brewmaster’s Dinner, a six course dinner paired with European bier and wines. The dinner usually sells out quickly, make a reservation now if you’re interested. The summer’s biggest party on Main Street kicks off Saturday morning at 11am-6pm that evening and picks up again on Sunday from 11am-5pm. Traditional German fare, Paulaner bier, commemorative bier steins, Oompah and Polka music, Bavarian costumes and great people watching are sure to add to this festive weekend.
