Why Move to Golden?

With the Rockies always sitting on the horizon and a burbling mountain stream running through the center of town, it’s not hard to see why so many are attracted to the idyllic western setting of Golden.The appeal has been so high that the city’s population has increased by more than 50% since 2000. But, the influx of new people hasn’t compromised the authentic character of Golden at all. In 2015, Golden was named one of the Top 100 Best Small Towns in America by Livability.

The Top Three Advantages of Living in Golden Are;
