Not all that glitters is gold. It might be silver instead

Fire up those vacation furnaces, it's time for a trip to silver city. Leadville sprang up in the 1870s thanks to the local abundance of a silver-rich lead mineral, and now it's your turn to see what you can dig up in this former mining mecca. She might have been a wild child back in her youth, but Leadville's a stately old gal these days, with a handsome Victorian downtown and plenty of buildings dating back to the 1870s. And with its mountains, lakes, wilderness areas, and museums, a Leadville vacation rental isn't likely to disappoint.

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.

Activities

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?

Weather

Fortunately you don't have to sleep in a tent these days

B-b-b-brace yourselves, because it's c-c-c-COLD up here in winter. Expect it to be below freezing most of the time between November and March. Not that anyone seems to mind. People up in Leadville just dress up warm and head out on their skis or snowshoes in search of a good ice-fishing spot. If you choose summer for your Leadville vacation rental, you'll find it a lot milder, with some lovely warm days, especially in July and August. Nights, on the other hand, are always cold, and you'll come across freezing early mornings at any time of year.

Natural features

Oh hey up there, Leadville, how're ya doin'?

Make no mistake, you're in the mountains up here. Leadville itself might feel like a busy, urban kind of place, but with its location up in the Rocky Mountains, it's the highest incorporated city in the U.S., at a staggering elevation of more than 10,000 feet. It's surrounded by national forests and wilderness areas, the closest of which are Collegiate Peaks Wilderness, Mount Massive Wilderness, and Buffalo Peaks Wilderness (famous for having Colorado's largest herd of bighorn sheep). The area is also a hotbed of "fourteeners" (peaks above 14,000 feet), and it boasts the highest peak in Colorado, Mount Ebert.
