Things to do

Ever get the feeling there's a theme developing?

Feel like mining is going to play a part in Leadville's museums and attractions? Well, you might as well start with the obvious one at the National Mining Hall of Fame & Museum. Follow it up with a tour of the Matchless Mine, where you can get the riches-to-rags story of silver tycoon, Horace Tabor. By now you'll be feeling a bit mined out, so it's time to don your engine driver's cap and hop aboard the Leadville Colorado and Southern Railroad. Their scenic trips through that classic Rockies scenery are a hit with old prospectors and more minor miners alike.


Step up, prospectors, for vacation riches await

When it comes to activities, your prospects are good with a Leadville vacation rental. Leadville has the biggest peaks in the state, plus 3 sprawling wilderness areas within easy reach. And folk round here love to get out on the water too, whether they're boating or kayaking. Turquoise Lake is a local favorite, or you could take an excursion out to Twin Lakes. Fishing is popular year-round, though in winter you'll need to drill yourself a little hole in the ice. Speaking of winter, why not do some skiing at Ski Cooper, or snowshoeing on the trails of the East Side Mining District?
