Welcome to Cripple Creek, a historic gambling and mining town that’s one of the most dynamic and scenic tourism destinations in Colorado. The grandly restored Old West brick buildings, surrounded by majestic mountains, boast nine unique state-of-the-art casinos, as well as great restaurants, shops and hotels. The excitement that drove the Greatest Gold Rush Ever still lives, where treasure seekers and hooligans from near and far try their hands at poker, black jack, roulette, craps and slot machines with the highest casino paybacks in Colorado. We’ll be spending 4 nights the Double Eagle Hotel & Casino, one of Cripple Creek’s largest casinos. There is an optional tour on day 3 to explore Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine. This historic gold mine tour descents 1,000 feet below ground, where you’ll learn about the workings of the 1890’s hard rock gold miner. Included attractions are a journey aboard the Royal Gorge Railroad where you’ll follow alongside the Mighty Arkansas River, directly under the famous Royal Gorge Bridge, the world’s highest suspension bridge, over 1,000 feet above the train. On day 4, we’ll journey to the Garden of the Gods Visitor and Nature Center where a step-on guide will join us and you’ll learn the history of the park and the Pike’s Peak region of Colorado.
