Located at the base of the foothills, Golden was the territorial capital until 1867 and remains one of the most historical towns in the state, with six museums, including Buffalo Bill Museum & Grave, the Colorado Railroad Museum, the Bradford Washburn American Mountaineering Museum, the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum, and the Golden Pioneer Museum. An arch spanning the street proudly proclaims that Golden is “Where the West Lives!” The rugged setting makes it an amazing destination for outdoor recreation like biking, hiking, and kayaking. Downtown offers an Old West feel with arcade-covered sidewalks providing entry to more than 30 shops and art galleries. There are 22 restaurants and bars with outdoor cafes, providing a great vantage point to watch kayakers float by on Clear Creek. And no trip to Golden would be complete without a tour of the Coors Brewery, the largest single brewing site in the world. A short drive from Golden is Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre, an awesome, awe-inspiring concert venue that has hosted well-known performers including the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, R.E.M., and U2.
