Half Day #1

  1. Lookout Mountain Nature Center
  2. Miller Coors Brewery Tours
  3. Colorado Railroad Museum

Start With This Trip

Start off driving up to the top of Lookout Mountain. Pull over a couple of places along the way to view the plains spreading off to the east. Make sure one of your stops is Windy Saddle where you can see the plains to the east and the towering Rockies to the west. Then continue on up to the Lookout Mountain Nature Center where you can learn about the flora and fauna of the area and enjoy some really spectacular views.

Now, it’s time for a refreshing indoor tour of the world’s largest single site brewery at Coors Brewery in Golden Colorado. Learn more about Adolf Coors and family as they built one of America’s favorite brands. See how the beer is made and stop for a while at the end for a couple of the freshest beers you’ll ever try.
Finish your trip just outside of Golden at the Colorado Railroad Museum. Travel back in time on the Galloping Goose (runs every Saturday), tour the museum, see restorations in progress, check out the model trains from the basement of the museum to the larger ones in the track outside. This hands on museum lets you climb in and see all the full size trains from yesteryear.

Be sure to check out a local restaurant or find a place to stay.
