Named to rival Silver City, a mining camp near Castle Mountain in the 1800s, Golden sits between the snow topped peaks of the Purcell and Rocky Mountains. Explore the Rockies from one of the best vantage points – from the saddle. Trail rides offer a great opportunity to see the wilderness and learn some history of the area. Trek along the Blaeberry River as it streams down from Howse Pass. Or mosey along the historic David Thompson Trail. The stunning scenery and sweet-scented mountain air are sure to refresh the mind of any city dweller. Mecca for adventures seekers and the gateway to remote mountain lodges. Golden is in the centre of 5 national parks, the area offers outdoor recreation opportunities, such as white-water rafting, hang-gliding, hiking, biking, heli-skiing, mountaineering, ice climbing, horseback riding and kayaking. Pamper yourself and ease into the luxury of a Bed and Breakfast, after a restful night in one of the "that bed was amazing" and awake to the aromas of fresh coffee and home made baking and delicious goodies. Bed & Breakfasts offer that personal touch, special care each morning with home cooked breakfasts.
Visit the Golden and District Museum featuring an early log school. In Glacier National Park, discover the remains of the once elegant Glacier House atop Rogers Pass. Part of the Rogers Pass National Historic Site, the foundations of the Glacier House, along with sections of abandoned railway track and a few stone bridges, tell the story of the railway's journey through the Rocky Mountains.
Throughout July and August, treat yourself to the “Sounds of Summer.” Friday nights during the summer, Golden offers visitors and locals alike free street performances at the downtown Fountain Plaza. With the star twinkling above and the sound of music and laughter floating on the breeze, this is the perfect way to complete a Golden day!
