Golden is known as the “Town of Opportunity” which rings true to this day.

Most associate this slogan with the opportunity for financial gain and they would be correct, however that is not the end of it. Golden is one of the few authentic mountain towns left, complete with locally owned businesses, true farmer’s markets and a stronger than ever community. The ‘Mom and Pop’ support offers everyone an equal opportunity to explore their passion and make a name for themselves. Whether you find your calling in the wild of the mountains, providing a rich and wholesome life for your family, hosting visitors during their time in Golden, enjoying the peace and tranquility of the area, or caring for others (two and four legged friends) you will find your opportunity in Golden. Golden is a town for the people.
