You'll step back in time when you enter the Gold Bug Mine! It's a REAL gold mine from the California Gold Rush days of the 1880’s. Upon arrival, we enjoy a self-guided tour to explore and learn how the California Gold Rush miners pulled gold out of the hard rock, learn about the tools and techniques they used to get at that elusive yellow metal - GOLD! When you enter the 352 foot drift of this hard rock mine, you will feel the cool air brush against your face as we work our way into the heart of the mountain. We will also visit the historic Stamp Mill, a working Blacksmith Shop, and Hattie's Gift Shop. Next, we’re off to historic downtown Placerville for our hosted lunch. In the afternoon, time will be allowed to shop and browse the many shops, boutiques and museums. Return home in the late afternoon.
