Located in northern Idaho, the Silver Valley is most well-known for its rich mining heritage—it’s not called the Silver Valley for nothing, after all. The area was loaded with mines that ended up producing over $6 billion in precious metals, making it one of the richest mining districts in world history. Most of these mines closed long ago, but one has remained open for visitor tours: the Crystal Gold Mine. Offering the only underground mine tour in the Northwest, this is something you simply have to experience.
