#2 In The United States

Posted by JanL on March 10, 2015


There is great excitement among properties in Summit County about the Matador Networks release of the coolest towns in the United States. Why one might ask?  Read on for below you will find the reason.

Matador Network released their Top 20 Coolest Towns in the US and Frisco, CO is topping the charts at #2! And we couldn’t agree more. As the central hub to all of the major ski resorts in Summit County as well as easy access to Lake Dillon, Frisco is an amazing choice for year-round living.

See what Matador has to say: “Where else can you go skiing, sailing, and mountain biking in the same day? Frisco is one of the only towns in Colorado’s Ski Towns Association without an actual ski area. But with Copper Mountain 5 minutes away, Breckenridge 10 minutes, and Vail 25 minutes, it’s got all the ski-town advantages without the overwhelming crush of tourism. Summer brings a buffet of outdoor recreation — mountain biking, rock climbing, hiking, fly fishing, camping, cycling, sailing — and idyllic weather.

Why it’s so cool

Visitors, second homeowners, and locals peacefully coexist in this impossibly quaint alpine playground complete with a pedestrian-friendly main street.

Perfect day

Eggs, croissants, and dark-roasted coffee at the Butterhorn Bakery provide fuel for a day of skiing at Copper Mountain in winter — take the free bus — and an evening of tubing under the lights at the Frisco Adventure Park. In summer, hike up Mount Royal (2-3hrs) or Peak One (4-6hrs), or mountain bike Peaks Trail (beware of moose!). Spend the afternoon on the water: Run class-II/III Ten Mile Creek, ending at the town’s wave park — Ten Mile Creek Kayaks provides transport and rentals. For flat-water fun, rent a boat at the Frisco Marina on Lake Dillon. Come evening, take a self-guided tour through Frisco Historic Park for a glimpse of Rocky Mountain pioneer life. Dine on sausage sampler, cucumber salad, soft-baked pretzels, and one-liter Stiegls at Prost. Revel late into the night at almost-famous dive bar, the Moose Jaw.”
