Take A Trip To Frisco, CO

April 1, 2020


Katy DuBois

Frisco, Colorado…a place I loved so much we named our dog after it. Frisco is about an hour from Denver and two and half hours from Aspen! It’s a super cute mountain town that gives you that Colorado, touristy, feel without all of the crowds you’ll get in the bigger ski towns! It’s very family friendly – I’ve played festivals here with my band and we we even went back for a family vacation.

Things To Do

Frisco Bay Marina
This is a beautiful spot to snap a picture of the water and mountains! I loved walking around this area. You can rent boats, paddle boards, and kayaks to enjoy a day out on the water and then stop in at The Island Grill Restaurant for a drink or bite to eat with a view!

The hiking in Frisco is amazing! Grab your pack and go! There are trails that range easy to difficult, so you have plenty of options depending on the level you’re looking for. Rainbow Lake Trail is a great place to hike with kids! A more difficult hike is Mount Royal, but it is worth it at the top with a great view of Frisco! If you’re REALLY up for a challenge continue on from Mount Royal to Mount Victoria!


The Lost Cajun
Great, quick, Cajun food!

Moose Jaw
If you want a Colorado dive bar experience – this is your place! Great food, drinks, and atmosphere!! Fun fact for my country music lovers: Dan and Shay’s “Tequila” music video was filmed here!  

Ein Prosit Fine Beer & Sausages
Ein Prosit is an authentic beer hall located in the heart of Frisco, Colorado. It serves Bavarian and Belgian beer, along with authentic Sausages.

Grab a a quick slice of pizza or snag take out for cozy night in!

Abbey’s Coffee
One of my favorite things to do was grab a latte and walk around downtown Frisco – taking in all the sights!

Day Trips Outside of Frisco

Maroon Bells (about 2.5 hours from Frisco)
Even the drive to get here is amazing! You can drive or shuttle into the park and then you’ll know when you’re at the Maroon Bells. It’s a BREATHTAKING view. You can stop for a photo opp and view and if you’d like to continue on, you can take the Crater Lake Trail to Crater Lake for another incredible view.

Quandary Peak (39 minutes from Frisco):
They call them “14er’s”. It’s a mountain peak that exceeds 14,000 feet! I’m not going to lie, this is a tough hike, but I’m SO glad I did it! The view at the top is unbelievable. We did see quite a few kids on this hike, so it is possible! Take a jacket no matter what time of year you go because you’ll get pretty chilly once you’re up in the higher altitude.
