You deserve a few days to play, but being the only adult on the jungle gym has attracted some stares. For a big-kid playground, hopscotch your way to the Colorado Rockies with this week's Escape to DoubleTree by Hilton Breckenridge.
You and a pal will spend two nights in a king or double-queen room, Sundays through Thursdays ($199) or Fridays and Saturdays ($229), and receive daily breakfast for two and parking. When you arrive, you'll want to jump into your spacious bed fitted with Sweet Dreams by DoubleTree bedding.
If making a splash is your idea of fun, inflate your water wings and head for the outdoor pool at the Upper Village, or practice your stroke in the property's indoor pool, reopening June 1. You can also steam in the sauna when you need a timeout.
Beyond the hotel, Breckenridge transforms from a winter wonderland into a summer amusement park in the warmer weather. And that's no exaggeration: Breckenridge Fun Park opens on June 15 and offers everything from the luge-style SuperSlide to the alpine Gold Runner Coaster. Bounce 20 feet in the air on the SuperBungee Trampoline; bike or horseback ride along a vast network of forest trails; or get in touch with area history while panning for gemstones.
Endless recess will work up a full-grown appetite, so return to the hotel to treat yourself to a delectable dinner at 9600 Grill. The menu of modern American cuisine includes dishes like the seared yellowtail tuna served with spicy Napa cabbage slaw and the tomahawk steak—a bone-in rib eye big enough for two.
Don't get stuck indoors this summer when you can go out and play with this week's Escape to the Rockies.
