Nicknamed the Silver Queen of the Rockies, Georgetown has more than 200 restored Victorian buildings painted in such colors as hot pink, lemon and purple. Of particular interest are the Hamill House (a lavish Victorian home with a six-seat outhouse), the Hotel de Paris Museum (the building dates to 1875) and the antique firehouse.
The scenic Georgetown Loop Railroad, a narrow-gauge steam train, is based in Georgetown and makes its scenic run late May-early October. Passengers have the chance to tour the old Lebanon Silver Mine as part of the train excursion. If you're in Georgetown during the winter holidays, be sure to attend the annual Christmas Market. 40 mi/65 km west of Denver.
