Itinerary

Your journey begins in the cradle of Colorado’s foothills, in the eclectic city of Golden. As you navigate to your accommodations, you will pass through the beautiful mountain town with views of green hills and towering rocky cliffs that still hold memories of the miners who founded the city.

Once you have checked in and dropped off your things, go out and enjoy a taste of Golden. Take advantage of one of Golden’s many hiking trails, walk along the river and stop for a local bite to eat, or take a beer tour at the Coors factory! End your day with a stunning view of the sun setting over the foothills that will reveal to you why the town is called Golden.

Today, you will make the twenty-minute drive to The Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave in Lookout Mountain Park, where you will learn about William F. Cody — the legend and entertainer of the American West — at the site of his burial, and take in the views of the wild region he called home. 

During your time at Buffalo Bill’s gravesite, take a moment to appreciate the beautiful, natural environment that lies around and beneath you. Though it is not the same as in Buffalo Bill’s day, the Colorado outdoors still deserves the wondrous title of “wild.”

Pack your things and embark on an expedition into Golden Gate Canyon State Park! Here you will set up camp at your reserved site from which you can take advantage of the park’s numerous trails, views, and hidden gems.

When the sun drops below the horizon, safely build a campfire using the surrounding deadwood and ponder the life of Buffalo Bill and the western pioneers of old to the crackle of the flames. Ensure that you thoroughly douse your fire before going to sleep beneath the glow of the stars.

On your fourth day in the Colorado foothills, you will travel to the town of Black Hawk. Founded in 1859 during the Gold Rush, Black Hawk offers food, casinos, and vivid memories of its mining history. During your visit, take a tour of Hidee Gold Mine and experience a taste of the lives of Black Hawk’s founders.

Today you will leave the cradle of Colorado’s foothills and drive to Colorado’s capital city of Denver. Here, you will check in to your hotel and enjoy views of the distant blue hills where you spent the last few days experiencing a taste of 19th-century western life. 

Once you’re settled in, head over to the Colorado History Museum for an innovative, highly-educational trip through Colorado’s rich heritage. Here you will learn more about the wild west, the mining towns where you have spent the past few days, and the land’s natural history.

After your journey through Colorado’s history, it is time to return to modernity. Today you will enjoy exploring downtown Denver. Visit the beloved 16th Street Mall, go to Union Station,  enjoy local entertainment, and perhaps even see a baseball game! 

During your day in downtown Denver, take advantage of an opportunity to do river cleanup alongside the South Platte. Safely keeping this river clean has a significant impact on this wonderful city.

On your final day, you will pack up beneath the glow of the Rocky Mountains and depart the beautiful city of Denver, Colorado. As you leave your sustainable educational trip behind, you will feel a newfound appreciation for the natural wonderland of the West along with a deeper knowledge of its famed characters.

The legendary western pioneer and entertainer Buffalo Bill rests atop beautiful Lookout Mountain in Colorado’s foothills. Embark on a sustainable educational trip across the Colorado Front Range through mining towns, 19th-century western memories, and national parks that will leave you reminiscing of times past in downtown Denver!
