About the location

Golden is the perfect little town for you to branch out and see any part of the Rockies your trip may take you! It's equidistant between the mountains and downtown Denver so it's the perfect home base for a weekend in the city and a backpacking expedition!

This guide will give you everything you need to know whether you're looking for a quick pit stop on your Colorado adventure, or a week long stay in the historic and quaint town at the foot of the Rockies!
