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.
