There's Gold in Them Thar Hills Bus Tour
By Tours & Treks

Let’s head into the hills to see the boomtowns that filled the Front Range, and the mines that gave them their reason to be!  Cities like Idaho Springs and Georgetown got rich on metals, and on mining the men who mined the mountains, honestly and not!  We will strike it rich in some of the mountain boomtowns that have given Colorado so much of its history.  Depending on the season, we may also take in a mine!  Stories aplenty, some shameful, some shocking, will make the day a memorable one …and who knows, you might even catch gold fever yourself!  Check for that twinkle in your eye, grab your pan and hit the hills!  Or just take this tour and learn about it all from the comfort of a bus.  Gold! 

Led by Kevin Snow, a historian and long-time tour guide of the Tours & Treks program.
