Silverton, Colorado is a wonderful
historic mining town which has revitalized itself to cater to the vital
tourism industry of the region. When driving into town from either
north or south, you will experience mountain vistas unlike anywhere else
in the US. The San Juan Scenic Skyway takes you to the top of the world.
Once here, you can watch the arrival of the Durango and Silverton Scenic
Train each day and be transported back in time to the days when steam
trains dominated the rails. On summer evenings you can stroll down
Greene Street to watch an authentic western gunfight or hear the
Silverton Brass Band. If the shops and restaurants aren't enough to keep
you busy, you can take a 4-wheel or horseback tour into the countryside.
There are historic mine tours, Victorian festivals, music festivals and
more. Visit www.silvertoncolorado.com
