Black Hawk - Best Small Town Getaway - Colorado 2015
As Black Hawk preserves the spirit of its past, it continues to prepare for the future with an exciting new vision for a development renaissance, destined to once again make history.
Boulder to Black Hawk Colorado (Casino town) Road Tour
Driving Boulder's scenic Colorado 93 highway to Black Hawk Colorado. This is an easy and very scenic drive one hour drive. Even if you don't gamble, it's worth a quick trip. Black Hawk Colorado's least populated City. It started out as a Gold mining town during the Pike's peak gold rush days. Buffalo Bill once lived in Black Hawk during the gold rush days. Black Hawk started to dwindle in the 20th century until they opened their first casino in 1991. They current have 18 casinos operating in Black Hawk today. Black Hawk is also a quick trip from Denver and there seems to be plenty of charter/tour buses taking people to and from near by towns. If you're not into casino's, this route through the gulch is dotted with places used for rafting.

Black Hawk and Central City - CASINO MECCA - FULL VIDEO TOUR (Colorado)
We found a hidden casino mecca in Colorado! All of the casinos are kinda grouped into this one small town where almost every building is a casino! You can get around $10 freeplay + $10 food credit from this town! Black Hawk and Central City are right beside each other and both are casino towns. Very strange and interesting place to see!
The twin towns of Central City and Black Hawk in Clear Creek Canyon west of Denver are so close, it's hard sometimes to tell where one begins and the other ends. They do have two other things in common, though. They both have revived the history of the area and are known today for limited-stakes gambling.
This current-day clamor for cash echoes long-ago Colorado's Gold Rush, which started here in 1859. Because of its newfound riches, Central City nearly became the state capital. It had more culture than Denver, and all that gold besides. Several opera houses sprung up by the early 1860s and the most enduring, the Central City Opera House, still holds performances today, including a summer opera festival.
The town also boasted gaming halls, saloons and brothels, as did most of the mining towns. The annual Madam Lou Bunch Day each summer honors the memory of the town's most famous madame and gives everyone a chance to kick up their heels.
Black Hawk and Central City sport several gaming venues, from intimate parlors to enticing resorts. Visitors tempt Lady Luck 24 hours a day at $100-limit blackjack, craps, roulette and poker tables, as well as slot and video machines at more than 20 casinos.
The town sits along the Peak to Peak Highway, a scenic byway that tours popular Front Range towns like Estes Park and Nederland. Outdoor enthusiasts can also venture into nearby Golden Gate Canyon State Park for the 12 hiking and biking trails, campsites and the views from Panorama Point Scenic Overlook.

Cripple Creek (3), Colorado, United States.
Cripple Creek, Colorado 2005, gold mining camp
For many years Cripple Creek's high valley, at an elevation of 9,494 feet (2,894 m), was considered no more important than a cattle pasture. Many prospectors avoided the area after the Mount Pisgah hoax, a mini gold rush caused by salting (adding gold to worthless rock).
On the 20th of October, 1890, Robert Miller Bob Womack discovered a rich ore and the last great Colorado gold rush began. Thousands of prospectors flocked to the region, and before long Winfield Scott Stratton located the famous Independence lode, one of the largest gold strikes in history. In three years, the population increased from five hundred to ten thousand by 1893. Although $500 million worth of gold ore was dug from Cripple Creek, Womack died penniless on 10 August 1909.
In 1896 Cripple Creek suffered two disastrous fires. The first occurred on April 25 destroying half of the city including much of the business district. Four days later another fire destroyed much of the remaining half. The city was rebuilt in a period of a few months, most historic buildings today date back to 1896.
By 1900, Cripple Creek and its sister city, Victor, were substantial mining communities.
During the 1890s, many of the miners in the Cripple Creek area joined a miners' union, the Western Federation of Miners (WFM). A significant strike took place in 1894, marking one of the few times in history that a sitting governor called out the national guard to protect miners from anti-union violence by forces under the control of the mine owners. By 1903, the allegiance of the state government had shifted and Governor James Peabody sent the Colorado National Guard into Cripple Creek with the goal of destroying union power in the gold camps. The WFM strike of 1903 and the governor's response precipitated the Colorado Labor Wars, a struggle that took many lives.
Through 2005, the Cripple Creek district produced about 23.5 million troy ounces (979 1/6 troy tons; 731 metric tons) of gold. The underground mines are mostly idle, except for a few small operations. There are significant underground deposits remaining which may become feasible to mine in the future. Large scale open pit mining and cyanide heap leach extraction of near-surface ore material, left behind by the old time miners as low grade, has taken place since 1994 east of Cripple Creek, near its sister city of Victor, Colorado.
The current mining operation is conducted by Cripple Creek and Victor Gold Mining Company (CC&V). The mine operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Mine operations, maintenance, and processing departments work a rotating day/night schedule in 12-hour shifts.
With many empty storefronts and picturesque homes, Cripple Creek once drew interest as a ghost town. At one point the population dropped to a few hundred, although Cripple Creek was never entirely deserted. In the 1970s and 1980s travelers on photo safari might find themselves in a beautiful decaying historic town. A few restaurants and bars catered to tourists who could pass weathered empty homes with lace curtains hanging in broken windows.
Colorado voters allowed Cripple Creek to establish legalized gambling in 1991. Cripple Creek is currently more of a gambling and tourist town than a ghost town. Casinos now occupy many historic buildings. Casino gambling has been successful in bringing revenue and vitality back into the area. It also provides funding for the State Historical Fund, administered by the Colorado Office of Archaeology and Historic Preservation. In 2012, Colorado casinos produced over $104 million in tax revenue for these programs
