Georgetown, Founded in 1859

Georgetown is located on Highway 70, just east of the Eisenhower Tunnel. This charming western town is worth a stop to visit its "Main St." (actually 6th Street) with old shops and cute restaurants, picnic in its peaceful park, poke through 100 plus year old buildings, or ride the Georgetown Loop Steam Railway.

Trains

Georgetown is most known for the Georgetown Loop Railway. Stop at the railway's visitor center and cafe to buy tickets. Picnic by the river, and check out some of the old trains near the parking lot.

Downtown shops and restaurants

Downtown Georgetown has many unque shops, restaurants, and bars.

Pros and Cons

    Oh, wanderlust in the middle of the night! Hello, how have I never heard of this town??! And the Train? I want to be in it right now. Or in a tent in the Rockies.

    Funny coincidence: A couple of weeks ago I saw a report on tv about this charming little town, in particular about the steam train. Must be fun to ride this train!
