Black Hawk is located about an hour west of Denver
in the Front Range region of Colorado. Black Hawk is also just a few miles north of Idaho Springs
, a popular ski resort town. Due to its central location in the Front Range, Black Hawk is a popular town for vacationers to rent homes and cabins in to explore the great outdoors in Colorado.
The twin towns of Black Hawk and Central City lay in the shadow of Clear Creek Canyon and are reminiscent of Old West towns. The towns are known for their limited-stakes gambling and often host poker and blackjack tournaments at the Black Hawk casinos. The area was once home to brothels, saloons and gaming halls, giving this area a really rugged feel. The spirit of the old days is still alive in Black Hawk today. This area is full of culture and history waiting to be discovered.
