Historic Golden, Colorado
Golden Colorado is nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. It is about 15 miles West of downtown Denver, but separated from the rest of the metro area by two mesas, North and South Table Mountains. Our historic downtown forms the heart of our community and is the location of most of our large community events. It is also popular with visitors, as it offers a wide array of restaurants and shops in Victorian-era buildings and breath-taking mountain scenery. Clear Creek runs through Golden and is popular with kayakers. Pedestrian/bike paths run along both sides of the creek through town. Golden is home to Coors Brewery, the Colorado School of Mines, and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. It is also the county seat for Jefferson County.
