Head down to Main Street to see the magical transformation of Breckenridge into a glittering, festive, holiday scene. As a local’s favorite holiday-themed event, don't miss and, in fact, join in with the countless reindeers (kids under 12) and Santas as they cruise down Main Street signaling the kick-off to the holiday season.

Starting at 3pm with the Make Your Own Ornament, the afternoon quickly transforms as the dogs take to the street to show off their most inventive holiday costume, followed by the Reindeer Run at 4:20pm, and then the Race of the Santas at 4:30pm.

If you’re searching for the right Breckenridge condo and having a fireplace is listed somewhere on your wishlist, you’re in luck—plenty of options are usually available at any given time. But to help jump start your search, here’s a quick look at just a few locations that feature some of the coziest condos currently on the market.

It’s brisk, it’s snowy, it’s the beginning of ski season, and it’s the perfect time of year for enjoying a yummy coffee, tea, hot chocolate, or basically anything warm to drink. In a seasonal tourist town as bustling as Breckenridge, there’s certainly no shortage of cozy tea houses, coffee shops, and cafes in the area that all serve up a great cup of Joe (or tea if that’s what you prefer). 

And if you’re wondering what some of our favorite spots are in town to frequent, here’s a closer look at just a few that come to mind.

The average sold price for all residential properties combined is up roughly 11 percent compared to this time last year, and homes are also selling quite quickly, averaging just 49 days on the market. 

If there is one segment of the market that some might say is struggling, most would point to condos.
