In the late 1800s, thousands of fortune-seekers made their way to Pikes Peak for the country’s last great gold rush. Now, more than a century later, you can make your own discoveries at Cripple Creek’s travel and informational resource center: the Cripple Creek Heritage Center.
Overlooking the town of Cripple Creek, the facility is a member of the Pikes Peak Country Attractions Association, and your complete source for Cripple Creek information. Stop here before entering the town for a birds-eye view of all there is to see and do in the heart of history!
This 11,600-square-foot Cripple Creek Visitors Center is designed in a style reminiscent of the town’s heyday; however, the technology is all 21st century. State-of-the-art does not begin to describe what awaits you in the area’s newest Pikes Peak travel center: multiple hands-on exhibits combine interactive technology with tactile, audio and video techniques, for an opportunity to fully immerse yourself in the glory days of the World’s Greatest Gold Camp.
