Central City is blessed with an abundance of activities to keep people busy! Our historic community takes you back to its founding by miners in 1859. While here, gaming aficionados will appreciate our 6 casinos which operate 24 hours per day. Other folks can enjoy the abundant wildlife in and around the community. Please explore the Gilpin County Museum, Art Galleries, and of course the historic Central City Opera House. If you like old stuff, go explore the cemeteries located around town or take a tour of the Coure D’Alene or Hidee mines. If those haven’t grabbed you yet, then check the events page for other activities which occur throughout the year! Come visit…we’d love to see you!
