Golden vacation rentals

Howdy folks, welcome to Golden!

Snug in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Golden, Colorado is a magnet drawing beer lovers from all over the country. It's the home of Coors beer, the largest single-site brewery in the world. And there's plenty to do here to work up a serious thirst. Try whitewater rafting on Clear Creek, hiking and biking through the rugged Golden Gate Canyon State Park, or visit Buffalo Bill's final resting place in Lookout Mountain Park. Book a Golden vacation rental and live out all your country and western dreams.

Adrenaline junkies receive a Golden welcome

Golden is an outdoors city and a veritable playground for thrill-seekers. Don't be surprised to see whitewater rafts being carried through the streets from the doorstep of your Golden vacation rental. The city is surrounded by a myriad of canyons, creeks, and forests, all of which offer an abundance of extreme fun. Start off gently by spending a leisurely afternoon kayaking through the Clear Creek, while hiking in Mount Falcon Park is a great way to explore the foothills of the majestic Rockies.

It's Golden time for beer and Buffalo Bill lovers

Buffalo Bill's Museum and Grave is also a big draw to the area, and celebrates the life and times of Colorado homeboy, William F. Cody. Built on his grave site on Lookout Mountain Park, it displays plenty of Bill memorabilia, including his stetson and saddles. Perhaps all that history has worked up a thirst? The Coors Brewing Company has been brewing Colorado's favourite beer overlooking Golden's Clear Creek since 1873. One way to learn about the fascinating beer-making process is to take the free brewery tour, which ends with a beer tasting.

Rocketing temperatures in the Rockies

Boasting more sunny days than Florida, there's no bad time to go to the greater Denver region. It's sunny and blazing hot in the summer, with temperatures reaching 90°F in July. In winter, the skies are still laser-blue and the temperature in the foothills is a mild 45°F, although the Rockies still see plenty of the white stuff on higher peaks. It's best to book Golden vacation rentals ahead of the busy periods, although the shoulder seasons of April and May, and September to October, generally offer the pick of the rentals.

Embrace Golden's wild west vibe in the Golden Gate Canyon

Tucked away in the foothills of Colorado's Rocky Mountains, Golden has a real wild west vibe going on. Book a Golden vacation rental and be within easy reach of the Golden Gate Canyon State Park within minutes. It has 36 miles of hiking, biking, and horseback-riding trails through lush forests of Douglas fir, Ponderosa pine and Rocky Mountain juniper. The 12,000-acre state park is also a natural habitat for America's mountain wildlife, with black bears, elks, and mountain lions no strangers to these parts.
