Frisco: more sunny days than Miami; ideal summer temps 60-78
At the heart of Summit County, Main Street Frisco is filled with action. Nonetheless, a laid-back charm, small-town feel and splashes of century old history remain in the lakeside community. Great weather here makes it a perfect spot for outdoor festivals and block parties, with one nearly every summer weekend. Bicyclists and summer adventurers who have had their fill of sunshine and fresh mountain air can escape to dine at one of the 30 eateries in restaurant row or wander in and out of Main Street’s quaint boutiques and shops.
Frisco to Lake Dillon
Rent a bike in Frisco and ride from Frisco to Lake Dillon. Easily one of the country’s most beautiful rides with flowers and wildlife abound where the path rolls through marshes and pine-forested coves. The 18 mile round trip makes just a 475 foot vertical gain from Frisco, so it’s fairly easy and level. Starting points are found along Frisco’s Summit Boulevard (Highway 9).
At 9,000 feet, Lake Dillon’s yacht club is the highest club in North America. You can dismount from your trusty steed and rent a sailboat or powerboat. Catch brown or rainbow trout from a secluded spot along the Lake’s 26 miles of shoreline. Or simply bask in the sun with a drink or snack at the Tiki Bar and just gaze at the sailboats gracefully cruising in the cool expanse of the Lake.
