I went to Cripple Creek for the ICE Fest. It was unseasonably warm but the festival was a hit. The middle of the main street was blocked off in order for the men to work their magic! It was great! I really enjoyed my time here. Other than that the town is basically all about casinos. I am not a... More

Mostly casinos up and down both sides of the street, but there are other things to do. You can take a mine tour, train ride or go through the museum. Most of the restaurants are average for casino food, but The Steakhouse is outstanding. Cool old buildings and a few gift shops, Beautiful scenery.

We were staying in Colorado Springs and decided to drive to Cripple Creek one afternoon. Definitely worth it. Cripple Creek itself is a very scenic town, but the entire drive is a treat - it is 100% scenic. Stop and eat at the Pizza Hut in Woodland Park (about half way between Colorado Springs and Cripple Creek). The elevation (9000... More

Cripple Creek is an old town full of casinos. The drive is very beautiful! Although, I don't recommend for family with children as there was not much offered to entertain them.

I try to go to Cripple Creek once a month. I love small town gambling and fun. The donkey races are worth the time, the ice sculptures are always great. I enjoy the drive from Canon City with all of the wildlife and vistas. Shelf road is pretty, but you need to plan on taking a 4x4 to save the... More

Been before but always in the summer. We went for New Years. Fun and low key. Love that it is pretty much for couples. We were there 4 days and I only saw a few kids. Yeah! All we did was gamble and eat. Real cold this time of year but of so beautiful. The town was all done up... More

We like to go to Cripple Creek about 4 -5 times per year. The drive is beautiful and it is fun to gamble for a few hours. We also like the nostalgia of an 1800's mining town. Never really plan to win at gambling, so we bring a limit to spend. If we win-- we go more often. Many great... More

We walked around to a few of the casinos and enjoyed the scenery, even won some money! The views from CR 67 are amazing! I would recommend making that drive to see the countryside and beautiful mountains.

Tourism is secondary to the Casino's so call ahead. Much of town is closed during the week except for the Casino's and a gift shop. I have been there before and enjoyed the Museums and the Narrow Gauge train tour so I know they are worth the visit and your money thats why I gave a three star, but call... More
