Getting Around

Cars + Bikes

buy dapoxetine sildenafil Car Rental: The front range can be difficult to get around without a car. We recommend renting one at the airport before driving to Denver and Golden.

Bike Rental: The Golden Bike Library is located right near the Visitor’s Center (right around the corner from The Golden Hotel). There, adults and kids can “check out” bikes for local use.

Accommodation

The Golden Hotel

To book a room, call or email the hotel:
(303) 215-4143   |   kiera@thegoldenhotel.com

Due to The Great American Beer Festival being in Denver during the weekend of our wedding, we’ve decided to move the home base to Golden! Golden is a historic town about 20 minutes west of Denver, sitting right at the foothills of the Rockies. It has a great downtown area with a bunch of breweries, restaurants, shops and a ton of hike and bike trails. It is 30-45 minutes away from both the wedding venue in Morrison and downtown Denver.

We’ve decided to make The Golden Hotel our home base for the weekend festivities – it’s right in downtown Golden. This is where the shuttle will pick up and drop off for the wedding. To book your room, call or email the hotel. We suggest you contact them immediately if you are considering staying as October is a busy month to visit Colorado and they’re likely to book quickly!

Additional Options:

If you’re looking to stay at a different hotel or an Airbnb in the area, we recommend staying anywhere in Golden, Evergreen or Morrison for easy access to the wedding venue, the mountains and Denver.

Keep in mind that if you do stay somewhere else and want to take the shuttle to and from the wedding, you’ll need to get transportation to and from The Golden Hotel, where the shuttle will depart.
