About Frisco

Frisco is your Basecamp for Colorado Outdoor Adventure

Welcoming. Generous. Outdoorsy. Quirky. Creative.

So you’re ready for a getaway. You’re craving open spaces, friendly faces, and some time away from the everyday. Located in the heart of Summit County, Frisco, Colorado is the perfect place to call home-away-from-home while you enjoy some spectacular year-round Rocky Mountain outdoor fun in a classic, small Colorado mountain town. 

Affectionately called “Main Street of the Rockies” for our charming downtown, Frisco clocks in at just under 2 square miles. Frisco is the perfect springboard to all sorts of outdoor adventures that extend well beyond our town boundaries, including skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, biking, sailing, and camping. Learn more about activities in Frisco. And when you’re done playing each day, we’ve got plenty of places for you to rest, relax, and resupply

With outdoor multi-sport opportunities at the Frisco Adventure Park, Nordic Center, Historic Park & Museum, and Marina on the shores of Dillon Reservoir, and year-round festivals and races, there’s plenty to keep you busy in Frisco. Our goal isn’t to keep you to ourselves, however. At just under 30 minutes away from six world-class ski resorts including Copper Mountain, Breckenridge, and Vail, we’re also happy to guide you beyond our friendly confines in the pursuit of your ideal Rocky Mountain getaway.
