You must see Colorado at least once? Argo Gold Mine and Mill located in Idaho Springs provides a tour experience for the whole family about the history of the Argo tunnel and Mill, which processed over one million dollars worth of gold ore after its completion in 1893. It also provides insight into the history of the gold rush in Colorado. Visitors not only get to tour the mine and museum, they can try their hand at panning for gold.
Rocky Mountain National Park is located in north-central Colorado between the towns of Estes Park and Grand Lake. You can find the headwaters of the Colorado River in the northwestern part of the park, and it is considered a World Biosphere Reserve by the United Nations. Visit any of the 5 visitors centers in the park; one is registered on the National Registry of Historic Places and was designed by the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture. There is a variety of landscapes to explore, from mountains to mountain tundra, and a wide array of wildlife. Whether you come for a day and do a short hike, or stay and camp out to go on longer treks, the scenery will impress you. Don’t miss the Arapaho National Forest or Indian Peaks Wilderness.
A full, southern style breakfast can be found at Sassafras. Definitely order the Beignets and the Hot Sassafras Tea, if you’re not a coffee lover. But, if you’re like us, you prefer a late morning. Head on over to Abejas for brunch on Saturday and Sunday! Make a reservation, trust us. They have a seasonal menu that will not disappoint. Lunch is a no-brainer at Thai Gold. The lunch special is so much food! The restaurant has a great outdoor area and it’s across the street from the inn! Yes, please!! Indulge is definitely our favorite happy hour in town. The food is chef driven and unique and the wine is perfectly paired! We love the Ahi Tuna Guacamole, let them pick a great wine to go with it!! See more information on Hotels in Golden Co.
Home to the tallest sand dunes in North America, Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve is a unique sight in Colorado with a diverse landscape that most visitors are not expecting to find. The 750-foot Star Dune is startlingly high, particularly when you are considering climbing it, and the mountains in the distance create a stunning setting. You can climb and slide on the dunes or test your boarding skills cruising down the sand. On hot days, children and even adults enjoy splashing around in the Medano Creek that runs along the base of the dunes. Hiking trails run through the forest on the edge of the dunes. The four-wheel drive Medano Pass Primitive Road opens up some unique terrain, and car camping sites are located along the roadside. Regular camping is available at the Pinon Flats campground, which offers both tent and RV campsites.
