Reasons to Visit Frisco, Colorado

Frisco Colorado Art Festival on Main street

Nestled at the base of Peak 1 of the Tenmile Range, Frisco is a quintessential Colorado mountain town. The centrally located town provides easy access to Breckenridge Ski Resort, Copper Mountain, Keystone Resort and Vail Mountain, but is removed from the crowds of the resort towns.

Frisco is home to one of the best Main Streets in the state, filled with a large variety of restaurants and boutique shops. Main Street Frisco hosts great festivals and events throughout the year, the most notable being the Colorado BBQ Challenge in June.

The town sits on the West side of Lake Dillon. Their fabulous marina offers paddleboard and kayak rentals and is home to the popular Island Grill lakeside restaurant and bar. Nearby, the Frisco Adventure Park is a great stop for fun activities like disc golf or biking in the summer and tubing in the winter.
