Insiders Guide to Idaho Springs
Idaho Springs
Idaho Springs

Idaho Springs is the best place for lunch in the mountains above Denver, just 30 minutes from the metro area. If you are looking for a mountain vacation in Colorado or just a refreshment stop on your way to or from the Colorado ski areas in Summit County, you can find good food and fun in Idaho Springs. The insiders advice is to savor Colorado-style pizza at the original Beau Jo's Pizza in downtown Idaho Springs (you can't miss it). Be sure to order a larger pizza, so you'll have leftovers to take home. Insiders also love the star local attraction, Indian Hot Springs Spa and Lodge, where you can soak in the private hot tubs or the mystic hot springs caves or splash in the wonderful indoor hot springs pool. Refreshment for the body and soul.

Idaho Springs has all the conveniences for an extended vacation bundled into a charming small town. It's a great central location for launching your adventures to nearby Mount Evans, Keystone, Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, Vail, or the famous casino towns of Black Hawk and Central City.

Idaho Springs is a fun place to stay and play, any time of year. You can even pan for gold at the local gold mines. You might strike it rich in Idaho Springs!
