Just 30 miles west of downtown Denver are the sought-after Foothills to the Rocky Mountains, where numerous unique communities are situated next to protected land teeming with wildlife, breathtaking vistas, and neighborhoods to call home. Originally, the greater Evergreen area came to be recognized in the mid-1800s for logging timber to meet the demands of a growing Denver. Cattle ranching and mining came next, and then families seeking homes with acreage and views of the Arapahoe Range, Mount Evans, Mount Rosalie, or even Pike’s Peak. Now, this area is known as a picturesque escape, not far from the city or the ski slopes. Jefferson County, where Evergreen and the surrounding cities reside, has world-class open spaces with 29 parks covering 54,000 acres for biking, hiking, horseback riding, and more. One of the world’s most famous music venues, Rock Reds Amphitheater, is located in nearby Morrison. Other attractions include the Argo Mine in Idaho Springs or Buffalo Bill Cody’s grave atop Lookout Mountain. As a vibrant community, you will also find performing live theatre, art galleries, chamber or philharmonic orchestras, art classes, book clubs, and more.
