Lowell of the West

Golden represents a former Wild West town that happens to be the burial place of William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody. Gold was discovered along Clear Creek in 1859, and the creek has been the centerpiece of the region, with the town growing up around it, ever since. Outdoor recreation buffs kayak, tube, and fish in its waters. If museums are on your itinerary, six are within walking distance of downtown and focus on everything from history to geology, mountaineering, and quilts. Home the world's largest brewery (a national brand), the town of about 20,000 residents also boasts a local brewery as well. Add Golden and other destinations to your itinerary using our United States family vacation planner, and learn about what to see, what to do, and where to stay.

Where to stay

Fewer than a dozen inns, hotels, and bed and breakfasts are located in Golden's town center. Most are independently owned lodgings that celebrate the town's connection with the Gold Rush. Rustic cabins and cottages outside the downtown area allow travelers to experience the destination like an early prospector.
