Want a taste of the Vegas lifestyle without having to leave the state? Blackhawk has you covered. While there are other options for strictly gambling elsewhere in Blackhawk (and the even more quaint Central City), the Ameristar is the spot which truly offers the Vegas experience, from the buffets, to the rooms, to the no-limit poker tables.
Colorado Culture Approved: Ameristar Resort and Casino. As stated, this place is as close to Vegas as you can get without crossing Utah.
Friendly Travel Tips: If you’re going to be drinking while gambling, plan on getting a room. The Central City Parkway is among the highest volume for DUIs in the state every year. Don’t add to that number
