Frisco, Colorado


Main Street of the Rockies

This page is the Frisco, Colorado – Mountain Habitat Community Profile. Located just west of the Eisenhower Tunnel, the Town of Frisco is called the “Main Street of the Rockies” because it’s right off the highway, and is centrally located to numerous ski resorts and mountain ranges. A prime summer attraction is the Frisco Marina and the bike path travels along the lake, while continuing south to Breckenridge and west to Copper Mountain.

Historic buildings line Main Street and offer lots of choices for eating and shopping. Certain times of the year, Main Street closes down and becomes a pedestrian-only area while locals and visitors partake in the BBQ Challenge or 4th of July festivities. Escape the heat on the water at the Frisco Marina and you can even satisfy your hunger and thirst at a relatively new restaurant and bar.

What Life is Like in Frisco

From Dina: The Log Cabin Cafe and Butterhorn Bakery are two breakfast eateries I like to visit. I’d recommend checking out Vinnie’s or Bagalis for lunch or dinner. Rivers, a clothing store, has fun and functional outerwear. 

Outdoor enthusiasts must hike up Mt. Royal, or you can rent bikes to ride the recreation path. Water lovers should rent canoes or kayaks and paddle among the protected islands towards Heaton Bay. Sometimes the boat traffic on the Dillon Marina side can be a bit intimidating, so the Frisco side can seem more family-friendly. 

End the day by camping at one of the campgrounds near the water, as Breckenridge does not offer camping. For an extreme adventure, you can choose to summit Peak One or trail run Uneva Pass to Copper Mountain. However, sometimes a stroll by the lake is just what the doctor ordered.
