On the sleepy shores of Dillon Reservoir, between I-70 and Keystone, Dillon emanates a slower, more relaxed vibe while still hosting a robust lineup of attractions and events.
Lakeside leisure is met with panoramic views of surrounding peaks reflecting off the area’s largest body of water. Pontoons and sail boats glide by. Hikers, bikers and campers savor 25 miles of shoreline, while free summer concerts reverberate from the outdoor amphitheater. Breweries, restaurants, a movie theater and bowling alley are on-hand and paved bike paths link neighborhoods to the lake and adjoining parks.
Winter in Dillon means easy access to Arapahoe Basin and Keystone ski areas and a network of nearby cross-country skiing and snowshoeing trails.
Summit County families flock here for the highly rated schools and more affordable housing options. Real estate comes in all shapes, including convenient condos and townhomes, single-family dwellings and luxurious mountain residences around the lake and in the Whispering Pines subdivision.
