Cripple Creek has become known for casinos, but there is so much more especially as the summer nears. There are a few museums, a number of small local shops, a wonderful visitors center, and much more. The local theatre, and a mine tour are also...More

What an amazing little town that we accidentally came across while motorcycling through Colorado. It’s like a mini Las Vegas, numerous little old time hotels. Enjoyed our stay wandering the town, gambling and the donkeys that roam the Main Street. Friendly town and glad we...More

This is a great place to take a mountain drive to from Denver or Colorado Springs, enjoy the old buildings, the gambling and the scenery. You can take a lift down into a gold mine, take a little train ride. Take a little road trip...More

We wanted to see the town I hadn’t been there since I was a kid and I wanted to show the town to my son. I love the town.

We toured on recommendation of a friend who grew up in the area. It is a cute town, with various places to visit just walking by on the main street. We stopped in for lunch prior to the gorge train ride.

An interesting place to roam around and look around. A Las Vegas wanna be town, but with more history. A nice diversion in the mountains.

Yes, all the casinos have the latest modern slots and are ticket based. But Bronco Billy's still has a few coin payout machines.

We've been visiting that area for many years. The elevation of Cripple Creek is over 9,000 feet. Snow may be expected most anytime during the Fall, Winter, or Spring.
