Foothills Colorado

Several of Colorado’s communities and neighborhoods are referred to as being located in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, including Bailey, Evergreen, Conifer, Genesee, and Boulder. Denver itself is known as the Gateway to the Rockies. You could also include Black Hawk, Central City, Golden, Lyons, Larkspur, and even Estes Park in a list of foothill communities.

People who live in this geographic area are usually energetic residents who enjoy the great outdoors. Thus, they chose to live as close to the mountains as possible while enjoying the conveniences of the big city.

The vibrant lifestyle in the Colorado foothills is complemented by locally owned boutiques, craft breweries, family ski shops, and charming restaurants serving up old-fashioned food. Living in the foothills enables people to enjoy quick excursions to the high country where their adventure awaits, whether it’s hiking, camping, sight-seeing, fishing, or hunting, the Rocky Mountains is an outdoor person’s dreamland.

The Rockies are packed with outdoor recreation opportunities, historic towns, scenic vistas, watchable wildlife, and pedestrian-friendly main streets filled with art galleries, sweet shops, and cozy dining establishments.

As you wonder along lively streets, you can feel how these foothill communities were shaped by rugged pioneers and Wild West history. The charming towns also host a variety of festivals throughout the year, from concerts to art shows. Golf courses are in abundance, as is whitewater rafting, rock climbing, horseback riding, and paddleboard surfing.

The Rocky Mountains call out to travelers and residents looking to experience all the great outdoors has to offer, and still return to an urban setting with all the amenities you want. Living in the foothills offers the perfect mix of a bustling, metropolitan lifestyle and an adventurous, innovative culture bound only by the mountainous landscape that surrounds it.
