Whatever you’re seeking via retail therapy, you’re likely to find it at Summit County shops. It’s easy to spend the better part of a day on Main Streets in Frisco and Breckenridge where souvenir shops rub elbows with fancy women’s boutiques, pricey leather goods and art galleries. Summit County shopping ranges from the practical to the peculiar and everything in between. Looking for mouthwash? Check Dillon shopping at the grocery and drug stores. Hunting the Copper Mountain shops for that special hoodie? It’s easy and convenient in all three villages. Maybe you hope to take home some glass-blown art or custom beads? Frisco shops include galleries with artisans on call. Are you hearing the wild call of a cave bear skull from Romania? Yes, apparently, you can find it in a Breckenridge shop. From any of the resort towns, including those in the Vail Valley, buses will transport you to The Outlets at Silverthorne where retailers are sorted into three zones for easy navigation via red, green and blue villages. Fashion and accessories rule the Silverthorne shopping outlets (Coach, American Eagle, Lucky Brand, Tommy Hilfiger and more) while athletic apparel with outdoor themes also has a large presence (Pearl Izumi, Columbia, and Nike Factory Store).
