Georgetown, Colorado Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

Georgetown is a small, scenic community nestled in a mountain valley in the Rockies west of Denver. At 8,530 feet elevation, this town provides a chance to experience high altitude living without requiring a long drive off the beaten path.  Though only a mile from the interstate, Georgetown feels more isolated and more at peace with the surrounding environment. The town is both less crowded and more genuine than the more popular resort communities to the west. 

There is plenty to see and do in and around Georgetown, however. The Victorian architecture alone is worth a stop off the highway, with a series of historic houses and museums.  The Hamill House and Hotel de Paris Museum are perhaps the most famous.  Georgetown Lake, visible from the highway, is small but scenic.  The Georgetown Loop Railroad, a reconstruction of an innovative historical train line that rises a twisting 600 feet in just a few miles, offers daily rides during summer months. The surrounding mountains are filled with trails and old mining roads, and inhabited by herds of elk and bighorn sheep. In addition, a variety of restaurants around town serve both local and international food.  Denver is only a short drive down the highway, and many make the day-trip from the valley to drive Guanella Pass. Nearby Central City offers both gambling and a beautiful canyon ending in Golden - with Buffalo Bill's Grave, Look Out Mountain, and Coor's Brewing Company.  Idaho Springs, with it's plethora of restaurants and activities, is also a short drive away.  

Georgetown is located in north central Colorado, about 45 miles west of Denver.
