FriscoMuseumThe weather in Frisco during September is so beautiful we can’t help but take every opportunity to get out and enjoy it. Once summer ends, it’s hard to pry away from our busy schedules to relax and enjoy fall activities, but we’ve come up with five great suggestions to entice you to come up and enjoy some time in Frisco before ski season begins.

Visit a Local Park

If you have never been to Frisco’s Adventure Park, now’s the time. This is one of our favorite little gems of the High Country! The Adventure Park has an activity for everyone. The park includes biking, skating, disc golf, ball fields, wagon rides, and much more. Or, if you’re more inclined to relax and soak up the sun, the Day Lodge within the park is equipped with a mountainside patio that’s just right for kicking up your feet and enjoying the scenery.

Hit the Trails for a Quick Jog

Rainbow Lake, part of Peak’s Trail, is a local’s favorite for a quick jog. The trailhead is located just minutes from Main Street over the recreation pathway on South Cabin Green. During your jog, you will venture through vibrant aspens and towering pines.  This trail will take you to Rainbow Lake, a beaver pond surrounded by the most beautiful scenery where you can sit and take a scenic break before heading back into town. This is also an excellent spot to view the changing colors of the fall aspen.

Try a New Restaurant

Shoulder season is the best time to try a new restaurant or two. This time of year brings great dining deals for locals and visitors. Nestled in the center of Main Street, Backcountry Brewery is a must when in the High Country. This award-winning brewery offers a full menu, second story views of the Rockies, and $2.75 pints all day on Sundays! Or, come hang out with us at the Inn for dinner. We’re now offering fabulous gourmet dinner options right onsite. Click here to get a peak at dinner hours and menu options.

Have a Picnic in the Park

Frisco boasts several fantastic parks that are perfect for enjoying a lovely September day. One of our favorites is Walter Byron Park, located along Ten Mile Creek. This park offers many amenities including grills, a volleyball net, a horseshoe pit, picnic tables, and a great playground. Walter Byron Park is a great spot to get the kids out to play before the snow flies.  Take a look at some of Frisco’s great park options here.

Visit the Museum Park

The town of Frisco is known as one of the most significant heritage attractions in the area. In 1983, Frisco opened and dedicated the Frisco Historic Park and Museum. The Schoolhouse in the Historic Park is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The museum offers regular lunchtime lectures, guided hikes, and tours. The museum also offers special events. Learn more about the museum park here. And, if you enjoy your visit, consider coming up again at Halloween to participate in their annual spooky festivities and score some sweet treats!

There are endless wonderful things to do in Frisco, which is one of the reasons our little mountain town is perfect for a quick fall getaway. If you’re looking for more ideas, visit the Things to do in Frisco page on our site. Take a minute to call us today to book your stay. It’s a wonderful time of year to forget the craziness of life and breathe in the autumn air.
