The Town of Frisco has spent countless hours improving the Peninsula Trails along Lake Dillon. Their network now really does offer something for everyone. This summer the Town of Breckenridge designed some clever new trail signs that caught the eye of Denver’s 9 News. Take a peek!

Did you know that the Town of Frisco hosts concerts every Thursday throughout the summer in their Historic Park on Main Street FOR FREE? This summer series has really brought back that fabulous community feel! Concerts take place every Thursday from June 23 to September 8, 2022 from 5:30-7:30 pm. Genres vary from funk and blues to folk, soul, R&B, rock, reggae and bluegrass. In addition to the beauty of music in the mountains, each week there is a local non-profit that benefits from the sale of beer, wine and soft drinks at the event. Everyone wins! Folks are encouraged to bring their own chairs or blankets and snacks. Today is their fifth concert of the summer and here are the bands we still have to look forward to.

Home water monitoring devices may be something to consider if you own a property that you do not live in full time. A friend with a second home here in Breckenridge was recently alerted by his “SimpliSafe” water monitoring system that there was a water leak in his home. He asked the property manager to check on it and they were able to stop the leak quickly. Without the notification from his SimpliSafe, the results could have been disastrous! Flood damage is the most common home insurance claim and one of the most expensive. Smart water monitors were created to prevent these very situations.

There are a variety of sensors on the market. Take a look and see if there’s a product that could help you in this same situation.

“We are now in the mountains and they are in us, kindling enthusiasm, making every nerve quiver, filling every pore and cell of us.” - John Muir, My First Summer in the Sierra
