"Visiting Mt. Evans and nearby sites" Colorado Things to Do Tip by LauraEllen

Colorado Things to Do: 315 reviews and 462 photos

Georgetown and Mt. Evans can be done in one day. It might be a long day, but well worth it.
There is a mine tour in Idaho Springs, but I've never done. Have been meaning to do it for years. Idaho Springs can be your exit to head to Mt. Evans, so it might be convenient to do that mine tour.
If it's a beautiful day, should start with the drive to Mt. Evans and work your way back to the other sites. Mt. Evans is a great trip with lots of interesting stops along the way and opportunities for hikes (as short or long as you like).
