This current-day clamor for cash echoes long-ago Colorado's Gold Rush, which started here in 1859. Like most of the mining towns, Black Hawk boasted gaming halls, saloons and brothels. Take the self-guided walking tour to discover the city's storied past. 

Today, the Black Hawk hosts a unique mix of authentic gold-mining history and modern-day hotels and casinos, all set against the unmatched scenic backdrop of the Rocky Mountains.  

Home to Colorado’s largest number of casinos and with easy access from Denver, the city is one of the state’s most popular gaming sites. 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 18 casinos, many of which also offer luxury hotel accomodations and world-class dining.

The town sits along the Peak to Peak Highway, a scenic byway that tours popular Front Range towns like Estes Park and Nederland.
