As the gateway to Denver's mountain communities and well known as the home of Coors Beer "brewed with Rocky Mountain spring water," this city has plenty to do and see. It is also known for being the the county seat for Jefferson County, home of the Colorado School of Mines and Buffalo Bills grave site.
Residents enjoy the Red Rocks amphitheater, the Jefferson Symphony Orchestra and Foothills Art Center. Enjoy a wonderful round of golf at the Fossil Trace Golf Club while the kids are enjoying a day in the sun at Splash Water Park. When the snow falls you are at the front door of the mountain resorts. Enjoy the area with a walk in the award winning historical downtown or visit the Gold History Museum and learn about prospectors and fortune hunters. Arts, entertainment and just plain fun reside in this great town.
Just west of Golden are the foothill communities of Morrison, Lookout Mountain, Riva Chase, Mount Vernon and Genesee. In Genesee you will find 2000 acres of open space & 12 miles of trails. The 840 homes are covenant protected to maintain the natural setting. The community has 24 hour security patrol, 3 clubhouses, 3 playgrounds, 2 outdoor pools, 4 tennis courts and its own fire station. Residential real estate comes in all shapes and sizes ranging from older Victorian style homes to newer luxury custom houses in The Estates located at Sixth Avenue, Mesa Meadows and of course the favorite Applewood area surrounding Rolling Hills golf course. There are also new neighborhoods on the slopes of Table Mountain. The serenity of mountain living is combined with easy access to Denver on I-70.
