Bordering the big-blue Dillon Reservoir and nestled along the Ten Mile and Gore Mountain ranges, the town of Dillon — along with nearby Frisco and Silverthorne — delivers seemingly boundless outdoor adventure plus a thriving arts and shopping scene. And with stunning alpine scenery situated amongst world-renowned ski resorts, this ruggedly beautiful region delivers endless opportunities for fun. At the Dillon Marina— the highest deep-water marina in North America — you can book a Dillon Reservoir boat tour or rent water toys like pontoon boats, paddle boards and sailboats. With 26 miles of shoreline surrounded by a breathtaking mountainous backdrop, the reservoir is perfect for boating, sailing, walking, biking and picnicking. Check out Dillon’s and Frisco’s shoreline for a decidedly “beachy” feel. Art comes to life at the beloved Silverthorne Performing Arts Center and its signature First Friday events. Or catch a lakeside concert at the newly renovated Dillon Amphitheater, which boasts rock, jazz, folk and orchestral offerings throughout the summer. And Frisco’s weekly Concerts Not in The Park offer an innovative opportunity to support live music.
Situated amidst stunning alpine scenery and world-renowned ski resorts, Silverthorne offers endless outdoor adventure, along with a thriving arts and shopping scene. From its modest beginnings as a camp for workers building the Dillon Dam to its modern role as the year-round heart of Summit County, this quintessential mountain town has evolved into a bustling gateway to ski country. Located conveniently right off I-70, Silverthorne also provides less expensive — though just as breathtaking — alternatives to ski-in, ski-out accommodations. Caters to all skill levels and features a lovely layout amid pine and aspen forests, sparkling lakes and snow-marbled 13,000-foot peaks. There are also several scenic trails in the area for hiking and biking — including the Blue River Trail, which connects the northern and southern portions of town and unites with the Summit County Recreational Pathway System offering routes to Dillon, Keystone and Frisco. If fishing, skiing, golfing or hiking don’t suit your fancy, then perhaps Silverthorne’s prime shopping will excite you. Today, one the town’s biggest draws is the Outlets at Silverthorne featuring a multiplex of more than 70 name-brand stores and deep discounts.
