We did the Cripple Creek tour today (thanks to a trip advisor suggestion). If was a neat experience that our entire family really enjoyed. Our kids loved it (ages 9, 6, & 3). Cripple Creek is a fun little town too...especially if you're a gambler.
Two other options are the Georgrtown railroad loop. It is a scenic train ride with an optional mining tour half way. You get off half way, go onthe tour, and then catch another train. www.GeorgetownLoopRR.com
Thank you - so many things to do and so liitle time! Will try one in Leadville!
