Welcome to Idaho Springs
Most people who are only in Denver for a limited time can barrel up the road to Idaho Springs for a quick taste of Colorado’s rough-and-tumble gold-rush history. The rowdy gaggle of prospectors, gunslingers and rapscallions who rushed here to get rich in 1859 have been mostly replaced by a notably more genteel crowd of day-tripping skiers, hikers and bikers on blindingly chromed-up Harleys, but the historic buildings along Miner St retain the creaking floors and antique character of the city’s colorful past.
