Golden, Co Where the West Lives! Drive through downtown Golden, one of Colorado's oldest towns, and you will be greeted by a sign welcoming you to this historic town. Clear Creek will also welcome you, as Golden is located in the Clear Creek Valley.
Originally named Golden City during the Pike's Peak Gold Rush, Golden is nestled between Lookout Mountain and two beautiful mesas and was the territorial capital of Colorado until 1867. Today, it remains an inspiring place to live with its rich mining history, Old West charm, and extraordinary views in every direction.
