A population of nearly 20,000 enjoys an active lifestyle in Golden, located 20-minutes from Denver at the base of the Rocky Mountains. The 136-year-old town still celebrates its heritage and small town identity today, and city officials are currently leading a "Golden Vision 2030" plan to determine the city's "Heart and Soul" values as they prepare to lead Golden into the future. This focus on quality of life is one of the many reasons residents find living here so appealing.

It's also easy to live and work in Golden with a variety of real estate options and several major employers and business parks located here. The average price for a Golden condominium costs $229,464 and the average single-family home is $395,554. Golden features an eclectic mix of homes from Victorian architecture to custom-built homes on large acreages. Applewood is one of Golden's largest and most sought after neighborhoods that maintains a rural-feel, and emphasizes limited development of new residential areas.

Golden offers a rich history dating back to 1862 when it was the territorial capitol of Colorado. The history of area pioneers is traced through exhibits at the Golden Pioneers Museum, and the 125-year history of the state's railroads are shared through photos, artifacts and documents at the Colorado Railroad Museum, located in a replica 1880s-style depot. Golden's historic downtown is still a bustling commerce district with 30 shops and restaurants and ten different museums. The area also hosts special year-round events, including the popular Buffalo Bill Days, a five-day celebration of one of the most recognizable figures from the Old West. Buffalo Bill's grave, is in fact, one of the most visited attractions in the area, along with Heritage Square, and the tours at Coors Brewery.

Recreation beckons from anywhere in town, and in the communities of Morrison and Evergreen located nearby. Options include Golden Gate State Park, Fossil Trace Golf Course, Splash at Fossil Trace Aquatic Park (the largest water park in Jefferson County), and the Clear Creek Whitewater Park for recreational canoeing and kayaking.

Golden also will be a featured stop on the "West Corridor", a 12.1-mile high-speed light rail line that will connect to downtown Denver. The line set to open in early 2013 as part of the Regional Transportation District's FasTracks program.
