Downtown Frisco

Going to or from the mountains? This charming little town is worth a visit.

1. Butterhorn Bakery
408 Main St.
Stop for breakfast—the bakery is known for its eggy bread (like French toast on steroids), frittatas, egg sandwiches, and huge cinnamon rolls—or lunch (it has great sandwiches, soups, and big-as-a-plate cookies). In a hurry to the slopes? Call in $5 breakfast wraps to go!

2. Next Page Books & Nosh
409 Main St.
Browse through the eclectic selection of books, funky cards by local artists, and unusual gifts at this charming independent spot. Want a nibble? Try the hummus plate and panini.

3. Rivers Clothing Co.
503 Main St.
This family-owned store is all about mountain chic: casual clothing, footwear, and accessories for men and women from brands like Lolë, Pistil, Johnny Was, Sherpani, Patagonia, and Prana.

4. Shoe Inn Boutique
411 Main St., Suite C
Need boots that are fashionable but can stand up to the rigors of snow (and keep you on your feet)? Stop here.

5. Rebel Sports
220 Main St.
Stretch your legs a little: Rent a winter fat bike or snowshoes at Rebel Sports and take them on one of the surrounding trails.

6. Zach’s Stop Trailhead
Walk down 2nd Avenue from Main Street to reach this trailhead, the starting point for biking, Nordic skiing, or snowshoeing either around Rainbow Lake or, for the more ambitious, to the Peaks Trail, which goes another eight miles to the base of the Breckenridge Ski Resort. There, you can take the free gondola to town and then the free Summit Stage back to Main Street. (Another option for skiers and boarders: Park in Frisco and take the Summit Stage to the base of Copper Mountain, just seven minutes away.)

7. Frisco Adventure Park
621 Recreation Way
Want more fun—or a place for the little ones to get in some easy slope time? A one-minute drive from Main Street will land you at this center, where the family can tube, cross-country ski, snowshoe, or take a horse-drawn sleigh ride.

8. Tavern West
311 W. Main St.
If you want a nice post-slope place to stop for a drink, try one of the yummy cocktails here. The Mt. Buffalo, named after a peak looming over the town, contains lime juice, honey-sage syrup, gingercello, and Peach Street Oak Gin.

Getting there
Off of I-70, take the second Frisco exit, No. 201; it will drop you right onto Main Street, where you will find most of these stops.
