Frisco, the center of it all! Even as we look back in history, Frisco has always been close to everything. With a population of 2,500 in the late 1800s, it reported a whopping 20 Saloons and 19 dancehalls. After all of the fur trappers and miners disbursed, Frisco’s population hit a low of less than 20 before climbing back up to 2,500. While it’s population is about the same today as in the late 1800s, Frisco Real Estate has certainly grown. Frisco’s amenities have expanded to include homes and mountain real estate yet a few of those old Saloons are still around too.
This old fashioned mountain town offers many shopping and dining options, real estate opportunities, and entertainment for both residents and guests of the county. Frisco Real Estate stretches from the shores of Lake Dillon all the way to the spectacular Ten Mile Range. Frisco truly is right in the middle of all the Summit County action – an obvious choice for year round vacationing, real estate ownership or an investment property!
The Town of Frisco is nestled in the heart of Summit County at 9,097 feet in elevation and is often referred to as the “Main Street to the Rockies.” Main Street has a quiet mountain charm while still offering many activities, lodging, resort real estate, shopping, and dining. Downtown is complete with historic buildings, terrific views on all sides, lots of shops, restaurants and bars, Lake Dillon marina, a Nordic Center, easy access to hiking trails, sunshine and humidity-free summer days! It’s the perfect place to spend a few days… or a few years!
Frisco holds many events throughout the summer and the winter. The town hosts the Colorado BBQ Challenge, where Main Street is closed for fun, food, friends, and family. On July 4th, it puts on the Summit County’s biggest parade followed by music and fireworks over Lake Dillon. Other events include Music on Main, Tour de Fat, and a mountain style Octoberfest. In addition to family activities, Frisco is also host to many countywide services including a new hospital/medical center, The County Commons, The Senior Center, the DMV office, county government offices, and a large library.
Though the town is definitely a beautiful western town, it is just one of many wonderful areas the county has to offer.
