Nestled among the Rock Mountains, in the Teller County of Colorado, Cripple Creek is a city that boasts a rich heritage and history. Born out of the great Gold Rush of Colorado, Cripple Creek used to be a typical settlement of Native Americans until the 'mountain men' arrived to hunt beavers for their fur, and it is these men who would later discover the wealth of gold hidden in Pikes Peak. The Gold Rush ushered in a new phase of opulence, development of transport, and its own share of civil problems. Today, the area still is a hub for gold mining, which visitors can witness by visiting the Cripple Creek & Victor Gold Mine. A quintessential tourist town, Cripple Creek has it all: history, culture, entertainment, and adventure. See the website to know more.
