Didn't appear to be much to do but gamble. I'm not much of a gambler so while family was doing that I walked around the town and took in the sights. The back drop off the town it doesn't even look real. It is just beautiful. We were able to see some wild life on our way home.

Really interesting learning about the history and seeing the buildings. The casinos seemed to fit right in. Definitely a place to unwind after all the outdoor activities in the area.

Riding around town seeing the western buildings was very interesting. We sure lucked up when we found the "wild" donkeys in town as well. We had been told there were some that didn't have owners but roamed the town freely. When we found them they were lined up in the shade of a building but they came out to see... More

It was a beautiful motorcycle ride to Cripple Creek. There was not a whole lot going on; it reminded me of the old western ghost towns but the next day there was going to be a big festival and people were setting up their tents and booths in the street.

One of the better tours I have been on. Really enjoyed our tour of the gold mine...after descending 1000 ft below ground the miner that gave us history and explanation of Mine did a great job. He was personable and made the tour very enjoyable

Cripple Creek is a bit like a dressed up movie set. I say dressed up because they just did major improvements to the town and most of the old western store fronts are now inhabited by casinos. Still a beautiful town with plenty of other things to do besides gamble. Worth the side trip when you are in the area... More

Nice mountain town. Lots of places to stay and eat. I do think the casinos somewhat detract from the mountain ambience. I visited Cripple Creek back in the 80's for the first time and enjoyed it a lot more then.

We have been coming here for years. It was once a great place to visit. Now it's a gambling town, but still has several attractions worth coming back to see. The free roaming donkeys are always interesting. They just hang around town in various places. The local shops have food for them. It was free at the museum when coming... More

Spend a few minutes here. Neat turn of the century architecture and clever little town. bring your camera because the storefronts are amazing. A little crowded for my taste.

This was definitely not the Cripple Creek I remember! It is just casino after casino with a few shops thrown in. The candy store was fantastic! Homemade chocolate goodness! We were here for the start of the rodeo, so we got to see the rodeo parade. That was cute. Make sure to see the Jail and ride the train if... More
