Frisco, Colorado – such a cute town !!!

Downtown Frisco is just two blocks from our condo.

Biking is a favorite in Summit county. There is nearly 70 miles of biking trails (map on the left). Bikes can be rented from a number of area outfitters. Mountain biking trails are everywhere. A favorite for newbies is riding a gondola up in Breckenridge and riding a rented bike down…straight into Frisco. (Talk to Rebel sports in Frisco to arrange the trip)

Restaurant Recommendations

  1. Tavern West (just a block from the condo on main street) – This is a cozy little restaurant which spills onto an outdoor area in summer. It has a nice bar, fireplace, and a menu that fits many tastes (reservations recommended).
  2. Frisco Prime – about 3 blocks from the condo, on main street. Great food, great atmosphere. A bit pricier, but worth it (reservations recommended).
  3. 5th Ave Grill – It sits right in the middle of downtown. It’s a great neighborhood place that everyone seems to visit at least once per trip. Full menu.
  4. Greco’s – has great pizza and again just a few blocks away.
  5. Ein Prosit and Highside are great pub atmospheres. The former has some-hard-to-find imported beers.
  6. Carlos Mexican grill and car wash (okay, technically the car wash isn’t part of the restaurant, but it seems like it.) The place offers good Tex-Mex (we have lived in TX for 20 years, so we have some expertise in this area). They have excellent mole. Sadly, it would be a very long walk, but just a short car trip from the condo.

Winter is spectacular in Summit County. Copper Mountain, Keystone, Arapahoe Basin, and Breckenridge are all within 16 miles of Frisco. All are reachable by the Summit Stage bus.

Frisco Adventure Park is pretty cool for kids. It offers a tubing hill, skate park, bike park, and frisbee golf.

Live music is staged near the museum every Thursday evening in the summer. Performances draw a nice crowd….take some folding chairs or just sit on the grass of the museum. It’s a short walk and well worth the trip. Moose Jaw also does outdoor performances in the summer. They may have a schedule, but it feels more like they simply do it when they feel like it.

Of course there are too many hiking trails to even count. Available trails range from short walks across (mostly) level ground to feats of endurance. For those trying to get used to the altitude, drive to the top of Swan mountain and take the short loop around the mountain. You will get spectacular views of the lake and surrounding mountain in this short loop trail that is very accessible.

As always, we would love to have you stay at one of our two Jackson Hole Condos. You can book on Airbnb, VRBO, or on our site,, for the best rates.
