South Park City Museum
Great Museum!! Took my teens and they seemed to really enjoy themselves! Love that it’s an open walkable museum because you are able to almost stand right in the past’s shoes. The employees seemed to really love their jobs and are so friendly! Went in on the 4th to be greeted by Uncle Sam! Spent an hour or more walking through and taking lots of pictures. Love the gift shop, another great employee. Felt really free to look around before really deciding what to get and left with both teens EXCITED to come back!
Epic Discovery at Breckenridge
Hmmm…not sure why the negative reviews!?! Maybe folks are expecting free admission and no lines? 😂 Our experience was awesome! Arrived at 1:30 on day 1 which meant we got to take advantage of all the great rides and scenery for 4 hours on day 1, then return on day 2 for a full day of fun without having to pay a dime more! Alpine slide, coaster, Colorado chair were some of our favorites! Also played some mini golf and did the zip lines (zips were admittedly a little disappointing since we have zipped in some amazing locales). Helpful tips – bring your own water, snacks, food else be prepared for sticker shock! $5.35 for a bottled water! Yikes! Went back on day 3 and rented mountain bikes and has a blast ripping down the mountain! Best views I’ve ever had mountain biking! Only complaint is the amount of time it took to get the bikes. There was NO line but apparently they wait until a bike is rented before they do the tuneup and safety check!?! Took at least 30 minutes to get 2 bikes. Other than that highly recommended!!!

Argo Gold Mill and Tunnel
A historical experience of how the gold rush started, and an interactive experience of how to pan for gold! The tour is well worth it as you get to explore both the giant mill and the tunnel into the mountain. Our guide was educated and made the whole thing interesting! To pan for gold at the end was really fun! My wife and I came home with 7 gold flakes. Whether you’re a tourist to the area or a local, it’s a fun date!
Georgetown Loop Railroad & Mining Park – Silver Plume Depot
This was an experience of a lifetime. We haven’t rode a train together before, and we got the chance today. The views were unbelievable… especially the tall bridge we went over. She was terrified at first, but returning over it, she felt at ease. We bought a jacket and a sweater because it gets chilly. I highly recommend a trip here for fun. They even have mining caves to explore, and you’ll get back on the train.
