If you follow the winding highway west of Denver for about twenty minutes, you'll find the peaceful communities of Evergreen, Genesee, and Golden nestled in the rolling hills just at the foot of the monumental Rocky Mountains. All three areas offer luxury mountain living whether you prefer a rustic cabin, custom mountain estate, or golf community property.
The greater Evergreen area is secluded, yet just a short distance from the city-many residents commute to Denver for work-but are also much closer to many of Colorado's world-renowned ski resorts like Winter Park, Breckenridge, Vail, and Beaver Creek. Locals love the privacy and tranquility of the alpine setting, but don't miss out on any of the city's advantages. Evergreen is a quiet mountain town and its surrounding communities in the Foothills area as rich with culture and natural resources as they are beautiful.
Evergreen Lake is a popular destination for many-especially outdoor enthusiasts. Adventure-seekers can visit nearby Echo Mountain resort, go hiking in Genesee Park, and experience world-renowned kayaking in Clear Creek. History buffs can brush up on their knowledge of the Old West easily at one of the many museums around Golden, and colorful relics from the Gold Rush era are easy to find in the Evergreen area. A particularly popular choice among visitors is Wild West entertainer Buffalo Bill's grave, just over the hill in Genesee. The Coors Brewery's main headquarters is located in Golden, and draws tourism to the area year-round. Many art galleries and cultural events are held throughout the year. "Staycations" in the Foothills area have become a trend among Denverites looking for something new but close to home. Fine dining, elegant hotels, and multiple yearly festivals drive a booming national and local tourism industry.
