History Museum
“Buffalo Bill's Grave offers a stunning view of Denver and the eastern plains. The museum shows Wild Bill's old saddles, clothing, movies, memorabilia, the gravesite and gift shop along with fudge. Over 1/2 million people visit annually. Also, Coors Brewing Company offers tours in downtown Golden, CO. And, the Bettcher Mansion on Lookout Mountain offers a tour of the mansion and a nature shop right next to it. Tons of bicycling in the area and hiking trails. We have hiking trails leading up the mountain from our back yard. ”
