Lately it feels like summer has arrived in Summit County, Colorado. Although we've been known to get snow in May and sometimes even the first part of June, this year it has been dry and warm for most of the past month. The sunshine is getting us all in the mood for summer and all the fun the season brings.
If you've never been to Frisco, you might want to check it out this summer. Just an hour and a half outside of Denver (an hour from the west suburbs), Frisco is a truly incredible and unique destination. Whether you enjoy biking, hiking, fishing, disc golf, camping, rafting, kayaking, or just hanging out enjoying the fresh air and breathtaking mountain views, Frisco has it all.
The Frisco Marina offers rentals and tours on Lake Dillon, or you can just sit on a bench overlooking the water, walk or bike along the rec path, or maybe camp at one of the nearby campgrounds. (If you're planning to camp on a weekend, make sure to reserve a spot ahead of time!)
Frisco's Main Street is adorable (that's not just my opinion--everybody says so) with shops, restaurants and a cool historic park. The town is big enough to have something for everyone, but not so big that it's overwhelming. And we have free parking!
There are also tons of festivals and events throughout the summer. The BBQ Challenge is sort of the unofficial kick-off to summer here on Frisco Main Street. If you love good BBQ and good music, this is the event for you. (I'll just be in my shop salivating, what with all the delicious smells wafting in.)
Speaking of food: While Frisco isn't the biggest town, we have a wide variety of restaurants. Several breakfast and lunch spots have outdoor patio seating where you can watch people walk by on the sidewalk while enjoying tasty food and drinks. For dinner, you can choose from Cajun, Sushi, Himalayan, German, American, Pho, Mexican, Chinese and Italian.
All in all, Frisco is just a great place to spend a day, or a few days, during the summer. And if you're strolling around town, be sure to stop in and say hello. We're located at the corner of Main Street and Third Avenue. Hope to see you this summer!
