Tour the city of Golden, Colorado, famous for the Coors Brewery and it's Old West atmosphere. An easy 15-mile drive from Denver and well worth the trip for restaurants, bars, souvenirs and entertainment.
The healing hot springs at Glenwood Springs, Colorado, in the Rocky Mountains has been a draw for tourists and swimmers since before the first homesteader in the 1880s. In addition to the spa resorts, it offers history such as Doc Holliday, wonderful restaurants, historic hotels and even an altitudinous amusement park! Just a few hours west of Denver by car or Amtrak, it makes a great weekend destination.
