Visit Silverton, Colorado

This is a tiny town with a population just under 1000 inhabitants – but don’t let the size fool you! Silverton, CO, is packed with things to do (it is a tourist town), and hopefully, you get to spend more than one day there! However, we have compiled a list of the best things to do in Silverton if you are just passing through for the day. This beautiful town is rich in history, full of adventures, and maintains the charm and aesthetic of an old-school Wild West mining town.

Here are a few ideas:

  • Take a drive on Colorado’s famous Million Dollar Highway
  • Get your own old tyme photos done by Professor Shutterbugs
  • Grub out on some delicious BBQ or Rocky Mountain Oysters
