Last Saturday we visited a town of Frisco, Colorado, how could we have lived here so long and never heard of it before? We both loved it so much that decided to bring family over some time soon. The reason we got there in the first place was a sleigh ride we booked via Internet which was the cheapest option available, ha-ha. It was really fun, we had mules for horses and a country singer performing in the hot chocolate break. The company we shared a ride with was families with kids mostly, it was absolutely adorable.
Arriving 3 hours early was a good idea since the town has a little open air museum and a lot of stores and places to eat. We did the Schoolhouse first, it is the main building in the village. The museum is free, by the way. Inspired by this good news we ate at The Lost Cajun, yum-yum, food and service were excellent, besides you can try samples before you order. Upon leaving this inexpensive and super authentic place we wandered around noticing there is more to see in the historical part. So we came back to check out the first church, hunters’ cabin and barber’s which was absolutely stunning. This is where we learned that the town was founded by a Swedish immigrant who came to get rich during the gold rush, a time of dreamers and thrill seekers.
This tiny tourist destination was not packed with folks despite the sunny weekend in the middle of the spring break. I loved to see dogs here and there, they only made it better. Walking up and down narrow streets was a nice way of finding great views. Parking was not a problem and the whole place felt like home.
