History and Outlaws

Colorado has a huge history as being the premiere home of cowboys and outlaws during man's push to the west. It's no wonder that we have many western themed events and venues. For example, there are so many historic sites with western heritage in Colorado Springs—from the Western Museum of Mining & Industry to the Ghost Town Museum—that you could spend a week there and barely see them all. Learning can be fun. For our adults readers, learning and sipping on some whiskey could be even more fun.

Not Just a Pub Crawl

If you're looking to wet your whistle and learn about the Colorado outlaws, there's a three hour walking tour of Downtown Denver. But Denver is for city slickers? In it's heyday, Denver was truly the Wild West. Denver was where dreams and fortunes were made, won, and lost with gambling and poker. Though Denver's gambling days are behind it (though Black Hawk and Central City aren't far away), the history is this there. Along the way you’ll be able to sample some amazing whiskey and hear tales of the old American West. You'll get a glimpse of the gun fighters, pioneers, con men, and kingpins of the dastardly that gave the city it's foundation.

Participants of the Whisky, History, and Outlaws Tour must be at least 21, so leave the kids at home. Remember, the price of the tour does not include drinks, so be prepared to purchase some drinks on your own at each stop. Alternatively you can choose the tour's Drink Package for a curated experience. There has to be at least four participants signed up for the tour start, so grab some friends to make it a real memorable experience. Also, face masks are required for some bars and restaurants along the tour. The hosts of the tour will provide face masks if you forget to bring your own. Hand sanitizer and hand sanitizing wipes will also be provided during and after the tour.
