Breckenridge, Co In July

For the past 3 years I have spent my 4th of July in awe of the Colorado mountains splendor. If you thought Colorado was gorgeous in the winter, just wait until you see it in the summer. The weather is perfect, and with every breath you feel as if you are cleansing your body with clean, fresh air. From parades filled with Budweiser Clydesdale horses and sled dogs, lunch venues with amazing views, and cascading waterfalls, there is a little something for everyone. Here is sampling of my favorite things to do in July around Breckenridge, Colorado.
