riding the gondola in breckenridge

We traveled to Breckenridge, Colorado for a quick get-away on Superbowl weekend.  Here’s what we found:

  • Beautiful, stunning mountain scenery
  • Mediocre to bad, expensive food (think $8 tuna sandwich and $25 dinner entrees served with paper napkins and placemats)
  • Terrible customer service (hotel and all restaurants/cafes)
  • Dive bars
  • Rowdy, drunk college students
  • Lots of vehicular traffic on all of the streets (with speedy drivers paying no heed to pedestrians)
  • Some photographic opportunities
  • A fun, free gondola ride up the mountains
  • Europeans
  • Lots and lots of real estate offices
  • Very few shops, art galleries and restaurants
  • Total boredom if one doesn’t ski
