Clear Creek County is located 20 miles west of Denver. Visit our Historic districts: Idaho Springs, Empire, Georgetown and Silver Plume. Enjoy shopping, dining, hiking, bike trails, fishing, horse back riding, white water rafting, ziplining, adventure parks, mine tours, riding a narrow-gauge steam train, touring scenic byways, and so much more!
Step back in time and explore our authentic western mining and railroad heritage! For admirers of the past, our historic towns are an architectural paradise. Our community wasn't created by a "tourist destination developer" – Our heritage is real!
Don't waste another minute, make your plans and take a journey with us. Clear Creek County has an adventure to offer every age and interest 365 days a year. And, because we're so close to Denver, you don't have to travel far to enjoy the mountains! Let the memories begin today!
