Has anyone been to Country Boy Mine? We're planning a July trip to the area and this is a possibility. The website looks interesting but I'd like some inside info. Thanks!

Hi All!!! My Hubby and I will be traveling to Colorado June 26 - July 5. We will be in Breckenridge for 4 of those days. I'm needing help with suggestions on places to eat that we SHOULD NOT miss. My plans for those 4 days consist of taking a day to walk around Breckenridge's Main street, taking a scenic train ride on Georgetown loop railroad and touring the silver mine as well as panning for gold, and touring Country Boy Mine. Are there any attractions/things to do I should add to our list??...More

I would suggest taking the free gondola up and maybe doing some hikes that are walking-distance from town (such as the Sawmill Reservoir or Iowa Hill).
