Family fun ideas in Golden, Colorado this summer--from their new bike library to water fun to nature centers to Earth Treks' 28,500-square-feet of climbing and bouldering.
Golden features all the fun of a mountain town without the drive up I-70: from dinosaurs to cowboys to nature centers to climbing walls to buckets of water fun.

We've lived in Denver for 12 years and had never been. I was so blown away by the nostalgia, wonderful staff, addictive corn fritters and old-fashioned atmosphere. We'll definitely be back, especially in the summer when I'll be the grounds are lovely.

Really unhappy with Jared's and their mistreatment of the giant pumpkin growers at the annual weigh-off. Not only did they CHARGE us to enter (we're the whole reason people come) but they didn't bother to get ribbons or prizes for the kids, which is the entire reason they work so hard all year long. Unless things change, we will NOT be back and I know of several other growers who will be boycotting due to the poor way this event is run.

I've been going here for years and though I like the doctors and PAs the support staff is horribly unresponsive. Not following up with results, taking forever to get back to my inquiries, etc. Ready to make the switch to another doctor's office.

Fantastic, fantastic, fantastic. We had a surprise party for my 8-year-old son and had all his buddies hide in the trailer. He was ecstatic to not only find them but all his favorite video games. This party will go down in infamy as the best ever. Mike was a pro--so professional and good with the kids. Highly recommend for your next bash!
