The Residence Inn Breckenridge is a great hotel, especially for families looking for a guest suite with a kitchen and more elbow room, but not a high price tag. It’s a perfectly located hotel in Breckenridge with easy access to everything, especially downtown activities. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean, spacious and affordable. We would definitely stay here again.
I love this place! It's really a glass blowing art studio but if you're looking for something to do in Frisco, you must go. My kids and I went to Frisco and attended one of the free demos John offers from 2-6 on Thursday. My daughter had an amazing life experience learning how to blow glass. She made a little vase that she's beyond proud of. Highly recommend the demo and the classes he offers.
YUMMMMMM! Gumbo. Etouffee. Beignets. Crawfish pies. Fried shrimp. The food is amazingly delicious. The place is small, very small. If it's summer you can sit outside. In the winter, go early or get something to go if it's packed. But go. Eat. Enjoy.
We spent an afternoon here in October - the weather was absolutely perfect and my kids enjoyed climbing all of the place. Definitely stop and get a map first at the visitor center so you can determine which routes you want to take. We did two trails (not the main paved trail) as I wanted to kids to actually climb a trail and get a chance to play on some of the rocks.
We did the Ridge Trail which was short and easy, and the Siamese Twins trail which was a little longer, had a slight climb, still easy, but gave beautiful sweeping views.

We were visiting family close by and went to grandfather mountain for the day in August. It was fun for our 20 month old and 5 year old. They loved seeing the animals, and our daughter loved crossing the swinging bridge. It was perfectly fine for kids - just hold their hands and they will be ok.
It was lovely views all around us, and we enjoyed the family time. I definitely recommend taking your kids. There are lots of fun things to do around town as well - such as gem mining and old candy stores.
