Wild West Walking Tour in Golden
Golden Colorado is a beautiful place to live and visit, but do you know anything about it’s history? Golden was a prime location of the Colorado Gold Rush. It was established early in the state’s history and boasts some of Colorado’s oldest continually running businesses. Golden once had cobblestone armories, territorial capital buildings, and unique bowling saloons. Golden was even a hotspot for wild west shootouts just like in the movies! Mark your calendars for next year’s tour to find out where these things actually took place.
One of the best parts about this particular walking tour is that it is an easy one. Though there are a few grades on incline on the tour, it is not a hike. This opens the event up to more people including kids and older participants. Everyone is welcome! It also takes frequent stops, so there will be plenty of time for photos. Public restrooms and water fountains are accessible along the route, but to keep things moving along.
