Golden is a favourite place for families to enjoy year round. A variety of seasonal outdoor activites, including skiing, biking, and hiking, keep families coming back for unforgettable experiences every year. Golden takes pride in its variety of family-friendly restaurants and accommodations, as well as local gems found no where else. If the kids are looking for a wildlife thrill, take them to pose for a picture next to Chester Jr at the Rocky Mountain Buffalo Ranch, howl with the wolf family at Northern Lights Wolf Centre, or watch their eyes pop at an up-close experience with Boo the bear at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. Around town, there are tons of lovely picnic spots and recreational parks for the whole family to enjoy, as well as secluded lakes and breathtaking locations in the mountains. Be sure to snap a photo to keep the memories for a lifetime!
