Silverton is an old mining town located in the South West region of Colorado and nestled in the heart of the San Juan Mountains. Listed on the National Historic Register, Silverton is a true western town. It still retains the western feel of the 1800s. Streets remain unpaved...a gun fight takes place every evening...and the Durango Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad train pulls into the train station each and every day from May to October. Silverton offers wonderful recreational opportunities from hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding to jeeping and shopping. World class fly fishing is also a favorite pastime of many. There is a gold mine tour and a gold mill tour for those who wish to learn the history of the region. Of course, the young ones can pan for gold! There are Brass Band Festivals, Folk Music Festivals, Barber Shop Quartet Concerts and the historic Step Back In Time Festival. Come join the history, shopping and fun in Silverton, where your premier lodging hotel alternative in town is the inspected and approved lodging of the Bed & Breakfast Innkeepers of Colorado.
