Golden is a classic American small town, with a major dose of the Old West. Nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Golden 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. Downtown is also popular with visitors, as it offers a wide array of restaurants and shops in Victorian-era buildings and is surrounded by beautiful mountain scenery.
Clear Creek offers kayaking, tubing, fly-fishing, and gold-panning. Pedestrian/bike paths run along both sides of the creek. Your employees will love being in Golden, and so will you.
