Many home buyers like to imagine themselves enjoying mountain views right outside their windows. Luckily, Denver is one of those rare US cities that have all the makings of a metropolitan center while being comfortably nestled in its beautiful rural-like surroundings. There's no shortage of mountainous terrain or highland forests and parks just minutes west from the city core, and those who want to live close to nature, own a vacation or getaway property close to resorts, want unlimited access to the plethora of outdoor recreational activities available, or just have an appreciation for that undeniable Colorado natural beauty should look into finding real estate here.
The Summer season is in full swing in the high country, and in the foothills of Golden, the trails are primed for the influx of hikers, bikers, climbers, and horseback riders who flock to the area. While only a short 25-minute drive from Denver, a visit to Golden is a necessary escape from city life. With 402 acres of open space, an inter-connected trail system of 24 miles (and close proximity to many more), Golden is a go-to for Denverites who want to take advantage of the town’s unparalleled outdoor recreation, without making the trek up I-70 into the Rocky Mountains. Plus, Golden is home to the Colorado School of Mines, tasty restaurants, one-of-kind breweries, unique shops, and lots of historical adventures—more than enough to fill a day (or a weekend). Here, our quick guide to making the most of your trip to the Golden City.
