Get inEdit

Frisco is on I-70, which is generally open year-round. The southern road from Breckenridge (CO 9) is at high altitude and may face winter interruptions. The nearest major airport is Denver International Airport.

Get aroundEdit

There is a free bus service that runs through Frisco and serves most of Summit County. The bus is called the Summit Stage.



Many outdoor enthusiasts choose to stay in Frisco due to its location between Breckenridge, Vail, and Keystone. The Ten-Mile Pathway is a popular road for bikers in the summer.

  • Dillon Reservoir. Located on the east side of town, the reservoir offers many hiking and biking trails along its shores. Camping, boating, and fishing are also options as activities at the reservoir.
  • Frisco Adventure Park, Frisco Peninsula, (970) 668-2558. In the winter, the Frisco adventure park offers a tubing hill, a beginner ski and ride slope, and a small terrain park. In the summer, the adventure park offers a downhill mountain bike course, miles of walking and biking trails, athletic fields, and a skateboard park.
  • Peak One Disc Golf Course, Frisco Peninsula, (970) 668-0836 x1310. Frisco's 18-hole disc golf course is open to the public and is free of charge. Keep in mind that you must bring your own discs. Parking is easy, and restroom facilities are available.
  • Walter Byron Park, 306 Creekside Drive, (970) 668-0836 x1310.

  • The Flying Crane, 605 E. Main St, (877) 668-2106. An asian-focused boutique that has been in operation in Frisco for over 10 years that sells jewelry, high-end fashion clothing, home decor, jewelry, and accessories.

  • Butterhorn Bakery and Cafe, 408 E Main St # 102B, 668-3997‎. Close to all of the mountains, this cafe is a Frisco local favorite for the take-away and dining experience. Many stop in for a fresh loaf of bread to go with dinner, and some just pop in for dessert.

It was voted Best Restaurant in Summit County in 2010. The fare is more expensive than many Frisco restaurants (dishes often cost upward of $30), but is also much more upscale; example dishes served at The Blue Spruce include Chesapeake Bay crab cakes, smoked trout, maple leaf duck, and Mt. Royal New York steak.
  • Tuscato Italian Restaurant, 311 E Main St, 668-3644. Tuscato has been one of Frisco's most popular restaurants since 1998.
