The Country Boy Mine is one of the largest and most famous gold mines in Breckenridge, Colo. At this mine, founded in 1887, families can pan for gold, pet the burros, slide down a 55-foot ore chute, explore the authentic mine site and view historical exhibits, equipment and even a video of interviews from real miners. Families have been visiting the Country Boy Mine for almost 20 years; it has been voted one of the best things to do in Breckenridge. Family fun is just around the corner in French Gulch.
