Motto: “Where the West Lives”

1. Coors Brewery Tour

To see how the iconic ‘cold as the Rockies’ beer is brewed, check out the Coors Brewery Tour in Golden. The thirty minute tour shows the malting, brewing and packaging processes, as well as a look at the history of the brewing company. Those 21 and over can enjoy free samples. For more information and to get tickets, visit their website.

2. Visit the Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave

 

This tourist attraction brings in over 400,000 visitors a year who are eager to see the museum and grave of Buffalo Bill. Buffalo Bill was a skilled hunter and traveled the U.S. doing his Wild West shows, performing in Colorado over 35 times before he was finally laid to rest at Lookout Mountain. This is a great activity for all ages!

3. Tube at Clear Creek Whitewater Park

 

Clear Creek is home to kayakers, swimmers, and kids playing in the water, but the best activity is tubing. Tubes can be rented just short trip away in downtown Golden, and you can travel all the way down the river. The river gets busy on hot days, but it’s worth it to lazily enjoy the cool water
