History geek and born storyteller Chris Albrecht looked for a tour in Golden, 15 miles west of Denver, that would reveal the secrets of the city's rich past. There wasn't one, so he did what any determined entrepreneurial spirit would. He researched local legends and history and started his own tour company. Engaging, funny and extremely knowledgeable, he created cool tours that put Golden's prominence in Colorado history into sharp focus. Golden is a perfect daytrip for Denver visitors, and Golden History Tours' walking tours, pub crawls and ghost tours offer an insider's well-researched view of this town that once served as territorial capital. Participants get a gold bandana as a free gift, a nod to the city's importance to Colorado's gold-mining history. After the tour, visit Golden's brew pubs, distilleries, the Triceratops Trail and Golden History Museum & Park, or book a room and experience Albrecht's engaging Ghost Tour.
- Sightseeing: "Add a hike on North Table Mountain to your Golden agenda. North Table Mountain Park has more than 15 miles of trails, spectacular views and, in spring and early summer, an abundance of Instagrammable wildflowers."
- Best for Sightseeing Because: Golden History Tours bring to life the wild, occasionally ribald and murderous, past of Golden, Territorial Capital of Colorado before Denver.
