A working gold mine and one of the largest and most famous at that, Country Boy Mine is a top Colorado attraction worthy of a visit. Located in Breckenridge, Country Boy Mine is surrounded by breathtaking Rocky Mountains landscapes and vistas.

Over a century old, Country Boy Mine now welcomes visitors year-round and offers family friendly activities including an underground mine adventure, gold panning and sleigh rides. On the underground mine adventure, you can explore the structure on your own, descending over 1,000 feet, and learn about the extensive history. You may opt for dinner with the winter time sleigh rides, and the availability of private rides makes the draught-horse drawn sleighs a romantic evening option for couples looking to escape in Colorado’s scenic beauty.

Given Colorado’s sometimes inclement weather, escaping underground with a tour through the mine can be a perfect retreat during rain or snow.
