Slip the car into drive, head west and you can quickly roll into some of Colorado’s most popular mountain hotspots and ski resorts, including Lake Dillon, Breckenridge and Vail.  You’ll also enjoy the proximity to the historic City of Golden as a refreshing contradiction, an iconic symbol of the Old West, but with a vibrant and progressive downtown.  West-metro commuters can catch the FastTracks light rail at the Jefferson county government center or nearby Red Rocks Community College.
