The little Colorado city of Idaho Springs is nestled in the heart of Colorado's Clear Creek Canyon and is situated just 30 miles away from the capital of Denver. The spot was once a popular mining town during the middle of the gold rush and because of that, mining themed attractions make up a lot of Idaho Springs' appeal for visitors today.
One of the best things to do in Idaho Springs is to discover the city's gold mining history. The Argo Gold Mine and tunnel leads travelers through where people once panned optimistically for gold. It is possible to take a guided tour of the attraction in order to obtain useful insights. The old Charlie Tayler Water Wheel is worth stopping by to see, as it is an original 18th century wheel that was used at a gold mining site centuries ago. Though it has been moved from its original location, it still functions.
Idaho Springs is best enjoyed in the summer months of June through to September. At this time, visitors can try their luck at panning for gold and wandering through cave networks without getting too cold.
