Lowell of the West

Golden represents a former Wild West town that happens to be the burial place of William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody. Gold was discovered along Clear Creek in 1859, and the creek has been the centerpiece of the region, with the town growing up around it, ever since. Outdoor recreation buffs kayak, tube, and fish in its waters. If museums are on your itinerary, six are within walking distance of downtown and focus on everything from history to geology, mountaineering, and quilts. Home the world's largest brewery (a national brand), the town of about 20,000 residents also boasts a local brewery as well. Golden is in Colorado (CO).
