It is no coincidence that Silverton has a precious metal in its name, it was one of the earliest mining towns in the country. It grew popular, especially during the gold rush. While most of the mines are run down and out of service today, Silverton owes a great deal of its economy to them. Some of these mines are now ghost towns and are a must-visit. The oldest mine is the Mayflower Gold mine, which serves as a historic site. Other places you should check out include Million Dollar Highway that features dangerous turns (although not too difficult for good drivers), the Ice Lakes trail which takes you around waterfalls and switchbacks up to 12000 feet (3600 meters) deep. You can even ride the Durango - Silverton steam train. Keep reading to find out about the best Airbnb vacation rentals in Silverton, Colorado!
