Black Hawk

Established in 1859 during the gold rush days in Colorado, in 1991 the quaint little shops lining the streets of Black Hawk were converted into gambling casinos and saloons. Since then, hotel/casinos like the Ameristar have been added to the mountain town’s skyline.

It is an easy drive from Denver to Black Hawk through the Clear Creek Canyon, and quite scenic as the highway cuts through the mountains.

Information about the town of Black Hawk is available on their website here – http://www.blackhawkcolorado.com/.
