What Starts as a Colorado Trip May End in a Small Business Idea

Take a Colorado trip to Victor Colorado and you may just fall in love with the place! Hike or bike on the four Historic Mining Trails, which weave past various old mining structures, part of a collection of mining relics that make up the Golden Belt Scenic Byway. Visit the local Gold Coin Mine and see where Victor Colorado became golden. The giant hoist, shaft and remaining buildings give a glimpse into Victor’s storied past. Across the street, you’ll find the famous Gold Coin Club, built in 1899 as a recreation hall for the miners.

If you like what you see on your Colorado trip, stay a while and learn more about Victor Colorado and its unique development opportunities.
