Located about 40 miles west of Denver, Central City's downtown is mostly made up of buildings constructed between 1860 and the 1930s, and the downtown is now a federally designated historic district. As you walk along the streets, you can get a sense of the residents' high-rolling attitude after the gold rush. The stone Central City Opera House was built by some of the area's most highly regarded architects and once featured performances by P.T. Barnum's circus and Buffalo Bill. It's since been restored and still features shows. Next door is the Teller House, a massive hotel built in 1872; it has old-fashioned red-bricked façade with arched doorways. Today, visitors certainly come to the town to gamble, but it's worth it to visit some of the gorgeous mountain scenery nearby. Arapaho National Forest is six miles away. It's made up of 1.5 million acres ideal for hiking, biking, fishing, or mountain climbing. Read the Fine Print for important info on travel dates and other restrictions.

Sprouting from rock 'n' roll roots, Rockabillies fuses the reverberating echoes of classic guitar riffs with handcrafted, half-pound burgers and a menu stocked with comforting eats. Guests inaugurate noshing sessions with sizzling starters such as buffalo chicken rolls—a symphony of grilled chicken, buffalo sauce, and blue cheese crumbles held in tune by crispy spring rolls. Next, dining duos or foursomes set aside air guitars to wrap hands around a Memphis burger, which is served balancing tiers of applewood-smoked bacon and a cloak of sweet barbecue sauce. Burger baristas outfit the cool rider with jalapeños and cream cheese, and crispy fries piled atop the Route 66 encourage groups to melodiously crunch to the beat of their own drum or the drums of on-stage performers.
