"Edge of the Mountains" Golden by Toughluck

Golden Travel Guide: 47 reviews and 155 photos

Golden is best known as the home of Coors Beer. The town itself is really three towns. There's the brewery that spreads down stream for a mile or more. It's not intrusive as town is in the other valley. Old Town is at the river crossing and includes all the interesting places to shop and visit. Everything is in walking distance. The Colorado School of Mines is just up hill from this part of town. Then there is the modern town, leading south. Here you'll find all the modern stores and larger shops. The land of the big boxes. It's well done and easy to get around.

Golden is also county seat and the county facilities are located north towards I-70.
