Colorado Gold Mines — Fun for the Whole Family!

Home > Blog > Uncategorized > Colorado Gold Mines — Fun for the Whole Family!

If you are looking for a different type of mountain adventure while on vacation this year, take a trip to the Colorado Gold Mines using Peak 1 Express as your Colorado family mountain shuttle. Peak 1 Express will get you to your mountain destination safely and quickly, providing you plenty of time to explore the peaks and valleys around the Colorado gold mines in Breckenridge, Colorado and surrounding areas. Back in the mid-1800’s, gold was found in the Rockies, and miners “rushed” to the area to find gold in them thar’ hills! The Colorado Gold Rush lasted for several decades and many miners got rich quick! Real gold can still be found in Eureka Creek, and one of the best things about the Colorado gold mines is that you keep what you find.

Peak 1 Mountain ShuttleWhat to Expect on a Gold Mine Tour

Mine tours are truly enjoyable for the whole family, and they’re quite educational, too. You’ll learn about the inner workings of the mines by taking a tour of real mines first explored over 100 years ago. You’ll wear a hard hat, see a jack leg drill in action and hear fascinating stories of the wonders of Colorado’s gold-mining history. The kids can pet burros, visit old-time general stores and take pictures along the way. There are blacksmith shops with wood-burning stoves to warm up on chilly days, and you can even pan for gold in the Eureka Creek. Knowledgeable tour guides will explain the gold-mining process to you, so you’ll learn what it was really like to mine gold in the 1850’s.
