Idaho Springs, Colorado Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

The birthplace of the Rocky Mountain Gold Rush, Idaho Springs is a well-preserved mining town that today has become a popular tourist spot. Dozens of mines sprung up in the region after gold was discovered in the valley in the mid-1800s, and several of these have been restored and offer tours today. An authentic nineteenth-century Main Street and the local hot springs are a few more attractions in town.

The main draw of Idaho Springs, however, is the breathtaking scenery of the Rockies. The highest paved road in North America heads south of town to the top of Mount Evans, one of Colorado's tallest mountains. Idaho Springs is also near Golden Gate State Park with stunning views of the continental divide, and within an hour's drive of six of the state's most famous ski resorts. Dozens of other recreation spots are also nearby.

Idaho Springs is about 30 miles west of the Denver area on I-70.
