IDAHO SPRINGS, Colorado — Tucked in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains less than an hour’s drive from Denver via Interstate 70, Idaho Springs is a rare gem steeped in Old West charm and cited as the place “where the gold rush began.” While the small town (its population is just 1,782) is nirvana for outdoor enthusiasts who hike its trails and raft its waters, Idaho Springs’ historic downtown allows visitors to indulge in plenty of blissful spa pampering, great food, comfortable lodging, eclectic shopping, and more.
“It’s an exciting time for Idaho Springs and I’m fortunate to be here.
I am optimistic that any changes to come will further enhance the
unique and special look and vibe of our town.” says Brandi Murphy, director of the Idaho Springs Chamber of Commerce.
Now a new website—www.ThisIsIdahoSprings.com—showcases all of the town’s unique offerings. Created by Frozen Fire, a digital marketing and video production firm that specializes in helping organizations bring their unique brands to life, the website’s vibrant design, engaging photography, and playful storytelling reflect the unique appeal of Idaho Springs.

“Idaho Springs is experiencing a Renaissance! and the Mighty ARGO development is a big part of this transformation– with a World Class Gondola soaring 1.2 miles up the mountain leading from a vibrant “base camp”, the ARGO will become a destination for Heritage Tourism and Outdoor recreation. The shopping, dining, lodging and housing opportunities will be uniquely Victorian industrial and retain the Victorian Charm of our place in the History of Colorado and the West.” explains Mary Jane Loevlie, owner of the Mighty ARGO MILL and TUNNEL.
