The Town of Frisco nestles at the base of Mount Royal, with easy access off of I-70 making it Summit County’s central base camp. Since its establishment as a mining settlement in the late 1800’s, Frisco has transformed into a thriving family and tourist community in the 21st century. Charming shops and restaurants line Main Street, all within a one-mile walking radius. Summit Boulevard offers mainstream retail and dining options centrally located for Summit County residents and visitors.
Frisco’s central location is ideal for wintertime ski excursions to Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, Keystone, and Arapahoe Basin. Frisco’s extensive paved bike path system makes pedal-powered transportation popular during warmer weather, linking with Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, and Dillon..
The Frisco Recreation Peninsula on the shores of Lake Dillon is undergoing exciting development with the addition of the new Frisco Adventure Park complete with an 8,000 square foot Day Lodge. Winter activities will include a new multi-lane tubing hill and jib park. The Frisco Nordic Center keeps miles of trails groomed for cross country skiing and snowshoeing, and families can enjoy dinner sleigh rides in the frosty night air. In the summertime, the Peninsula’s Skateboard Park, Peak One Disc Golf Course, Ball Field, and several campground and picnic areas offer plenty of outdoor fun for everyone.
The Frisco Bay Marina hosts a variety of warm-weather water sports including sailing, kayaking, and canoeing. Its picturesque location is the perfect spot to enjoy a leisurely lunch or evening cocktail by Lake Dillon’s sparkling blue waters.
