We've been on some other mine tours but certainly enjoyed this the most. The guide was great with history on the mine as well as the describing the realistic conditions the miners endured. The tour was great.

This was just a neat place my wife and I visited. It's got a little of everything. A really interesting mine tour that is not too strenuous, but gave us some great perspectives. Our guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. The property is clean and well...More

We went and really glad we went. The tour is chilly so bring a jacket. Your shoes may get a little damp just FYI. But it's one of those things you should do once in your life. The drive up from Breckenridge was cool too....More

Very informative tour with a great guide Betsy. It was a great history lesson for the kids but pricey. If you are looking for an activity that is not very adventurous this is for you as long as you are not afraid of the dark
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!

Breckenridge June 27 - June 31...need some suggestions!!! (2 Replies)
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).
