Year Round Activities

Leadville Walking or Driving Tour

Take a self guided walking or driving tour through the heart of Leadville, CO. Start your adventure at Ice Place Park, and head southeast to Harrison Avenue where you’ll pass Dexter Cabin and Healy House Museum. Continuing your trip down Harrison Ave., you’ll be able to visit many points of interest, such as: the National Mining Hall of Fame and Museum, Leadville City Hall, Tabor Home, Tabor Opera House, and George’s Episcopal Church.  Route maps are available at The Delaware Hotel’s reception desk.


While The Delaware Hotel offers the largest collection of antique furniture and collectibles in the area, there are 10 other antique stores in town, each offering its own specialty.  From doll collections at The Mad Hatter to multiple dealers at Western Hardware, antique-ing in Leadville is a full-day adventure and a step back in time. Best of all, it’s Free – except of course for the treasures you adopt.

Route of the Silver Kings

Driving this 10-mile route through the 20-square-mile mining district is truly stepping back in time. The Route of the Silver Kings allows you to stop at mines, ghost towns, mining camps and more! High-clearance vehicles are suggested.  Free access to the route is only 3 blocks from The Delaware Hotel!
