Although we have about 300 days of sunshine here in Breck, the climate is bound to change. In the winter, precipitation is what we wish for! But in the warmer months, the rain does fall [though it’s usually a quick storm] and we can’t always enjoy our outdoor activities. Don’t worry though, the rain won’t wash out the fun on your vacation!
Here are some of my favorite things to do when it rains in Breckenridge:

For adults, there are canvas painting parties and glass fusing workshops in the evenings with beer and wine available. Also, check out the BreckCreate for classes of many mediums such as ceramics, metalsmithing and much more!
See Live Theater

Take A Yoga Class At Bhava
Inhale, exhale and become rejuvenated at Breck’s newest yoga studio, Bhava Yoga. Unwind with Bhava Vinyasa – Ground, a slower paced class, or turn up the heat with Bhava Vinyasa – Elevate. With a variety of classes, there is one to suit any level. Check out the full schedule here!
Indulge In Food And Drink
There are many cozy cafes, enjoyable bars and a variety of restaurants to choose from on a rainy day. Check out The Crown for a warm atmosphere, Downstairs at Eric’s for family fun or Twist for a fresh taste on creative cuisine and cocktails. Read our Breckenridge Dining Guide for more recommendations.
Solve A Mystery
Can you solve riddles, uncover clues and crack codes to escape the Breckenridge Escape Room in time? Bring a group of friends or family to problem solve and race the clock! All groups range in size from 2-8 and all games are 60 minutes. Good luck!

Take A Distillery Tour
Get behind the scenes at the Breckenridge Distillery with a complimentary tour and tasting. Tours are available every day, multiple times a day but are first-come, first-serve. If you don’t make the first one, enjoy modern American cuisine at the restaurant. Or for more of an exclusive tour, you can sign up for an “after hours tour” VIP experience.
See A Movie
Movies are always a good idea on a rainy day! Grab some popcorn and head to the Breckenridge Speakeasy movie theater right near Main Street. You can find movies and times here.
Blend Wine And Drink Some, Too!
Become a winemaker at the Continental Divide Winery! Taste different red wine varietals, craft your own blend, then bottle, cork and label your creation. Call and reserve a spot today! You can also walk in and enjoy other wines open for tasting from 1-7 PM daily.
Swim, Climb, Play
Bring your family to the Breckenridge Recreation Center for a day of fun physical activities! Try the waterslide, rock climbing, a fitness class, tennis, and much more. There’s something for everyone. Click here for more information.
