Destination guide

An artsy oasis at the foot of the Rockies

Nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, half an hour west of Denver, Evergreen is close to the big city, but feels light years away from big city life. Sandwiched between a pink cliff wall on one side and the rapids of Bear Creek on the other, Evergreen's historic Main Street offers up a quaint mix of bistros, cafes, and boutiques selling gift-worthy fine art and local handmade goods. After a day of hiking and fresh air, you can unwind over some creekfront dining and live music at one of the local watering holes.

Things to do

Rocky Mountain wilderness meets 19th-century charm

Evergreen's main draw is its historic downtown, dating from 1876. The quaint main street is brimming with artsy shops, eclectic boutiques, and welcoming restaurants, as well as a vibrant local music and theater scene. Nature lovers flock to Evergreen Lake for boating, swimming, and winter activities. To fully immerse yourself in the wilderness, pay a visit to Mt. Evans in the foothills of the Rockies, where a tranquil hike through the forest will reward you with plenty of wildlife encounters, plus stunning views of the waters cascading 76 feet off Maxwell Falls.
