Time was, Coloradans couldn't jet down I-70 when they needed to make a cross-state journey. Experience our pre-interstate history with today's deal from the Georgetown Loop Railroad: Pay $26 (regularly $54) for two train tickets. Located about 50 minutes west of Denver, this scenic spot is a relic of the gold rush of 1859. After boarding the old-fashioned steam train, you'll travel from Georgetown to Silver Plume, rising more than 600 feet on narrow-gauge track. You'll cross bridges and round loops, enjoying all the while the Old West ambience and excellent views of alpine forests and craggy canyons. Bring a camera and your favorite traveling companion on this weekend ride -- it's one both of you will remember for years to come.
