The City of Golden, Colorado is nestled at the base of the Rocky Mountains only 15 miles west of Denver. Settled between Lookout Mountain and two plateaus, it is a vibrant spot to live with its rich mining history, Old West appeal and phenomenal views in every direction.
The easy access to the mountains and to downtown Denver make this picturesque town filled with historic block structures and more than 30 distinct shops, eateries, fine dining and bars a great place to live and play. The Clear Creek trail runs through downtown Golden and from the bridge you can watch kayakers and tubers glide by, or catch a glimpse of the hang gliders floating down from Lookout Mountain.
Golden is home to one of Colorado’s best colleges, the Colorado School of Mines, as well as Coors Brewing Company and the Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave. The internationally famous and acoustically/visually awe inspiring Red Rocks Amphitheater is just a short drive from beautiful Downtown Golden.
Access to Denver, the mountains and Boulder by means of I-70, C470, U.S. Roadway 6, and Highways 58 and 93 make Golden an easy commute throughout the metro area. With the expansion of the lite rail you can now have access into downtown Denver and the airport via public transit.
