If you’ve never experienced a mine tour, a 45 minute trip through the Cowboy Mine in Breckenridge, is fun and educational. Here you’ll get a sense of what it was like to be a miner in the early days.
You can even slide down a 55-foot ore chute and pan for gold (finders keepers). Kids and adults love it. If you go, take a jacket. It’s around 42 degrees in the mine.
