The mountain valley city of Cripple Creek was founded on top of a mining camp, where striking it rich in gold was the dream of many. Today, the history and beauty of this area draws many. Historic buildings, train rides, mine tours and more greet the person looking to step back in time. For those who like history and a little fun will also find a thriving casino area for a different kind of striking it rich.

The railroad history is also deep, with many locations offering insight and fun around the transportation that connected and expanded America. From the Midland Railroad Terminal to the Cripple Creek and Victor Narrow Gauge Railroad, your imagination will be kindled to a time when things went a little slower but were no less exciting.

One of Cripple Creek?s truest celebrities, though, is the humble donkey. Come for the famed Donkey Days or visit the donkeys cared for by The Two-Mile High Club, and stay for small-town feel of the mountain valley location.

But it?s really the beauty of the area that lifts people?s heads to the skyline. Surrounded by rolling hills of evergreens and hemmed in by the Rocky Mountains, you?ll feel a little closer to heaven with the classic bright blue skies of Colorado overhead. It can be the sleepy mountain town you?ve been looking for with some regular excitement and fun to shake things up.

Make Cripple Creek the new homebase that puts a smile on your face.
