Easy Traveling Options to Breckenridge & Keystone, CO

No matter what season you are thinking about heading to Breckenridge or Keystone for a vacation, the transportation options are plentiful and do-able.

Breckenridge is tucked up in the mountains about 80 miles from central Denver making for an hour & half drive through some of Colorado’s spectacular Rocky Mountains on the I-70 corridor.

As you begin to make the epic climb to the Continental Divide you will pass through some of Colorado’s historic mining towns of Idaho Springs and Georgetown. Keep your eyes open for the well camouflaged Big Horn Sheep who love the steep rocky hill sides along the highway.

As you continue the climb you will make it to the Eisenhower–Johnson Memorial Tunnel at 11,158 feet. This epic tunnel is one of the highest vehicular tunnels in the world and is the longest mountain tunnel. Don’t try holding your breath on this one. As you get to this tunnel think of the labor and time it took to construct this tunnel in 1979. After the tunnel, make the descent back to “lower” ground and after passing through the town of Silverthorne look for the CO Route 9 exit at Frisco. This easy road winds its way into the high mountains surrounding Breckenridge!
