Mining is a vital part of Colorado’s history. This is where some of the earliest and most substantial gold discoveries were made, and why many of the towns were founded in the first place. If you want to learn more about the state’s fascinating history, you won’t have to dig very deep as you’ll find numerous mining tours in scenic mountain towns that will provide an interesting look at local history, mining characters, how the equipment worked, and, in some cases, even pan or dig for gold yourself.
