Living In Fairplay, Colorado
Highway 9 travels south from Breckenridge and forms Fairplay's current main street, which offers food and lodging. The town of Fairplay has newly developed the historical section on the south side of town along the South Platte River with several new restaurants and antique shops. Residential streets form a grid to the east, and many rural neighborhoods surround town, like Beaver Ridge just north and east of Hwy 9. Most of these are accessed by unpaved, but well-graded roads. The South Platte River flows to the immediate south and west of town. Highway 9 tees into Highway 285 and at this junction residents and visitors can find a grocery store, hardware and other shopping. A new rec center, several parks, and the restored historic library are recent additions that arose from Fairplay's increasing function as a bedroom community for nearby Summit County. Many of its residents make their living from the busy ski resorts across Hoosier Pass, but enjoy living in a more rural area of Colorado with the less-densely populated character of Park County.
