Foothills Explorer Tour From Denver

526 reviews
Soak up the scenery and culture of the Rocky Mountains—even if you have a limited time—on this half-day tour from Denver. Check out the sandstone acoustics of Red Rocks Amphitheatre, drive through alpine forests on the scenic Lariat Loop, and get panoramic views of Colorado’s Front Range from atop Lookout Mountain. It's a great way to see the outdoor playground on Denver’s doorstep without renting a car.

This place has a nice variety of local artists on exhibit, which they change out from time to time. It is fairly small, and doesn’t take a lot of your time, but is worth seeing if you like a variety of art,

No visit to Golden is complete without a visit to the Foothills Art Center. After visiting the shops and restaurants in downtown Golden, it's time to trek up the hill to the Foothills Art Center. The Foothills art Center is a great little art center in a very neat old building. The building itself makes it worth a trip to the Art Center. The Center has nice exhibits of local and regional art as well as a variety of special exhibits. There are 2 buildings - located side-by-side but not connected. Be sure to check out both buildings. This is a good place to spend about an hour.

Golden is a sculpture lovers paradise. The Foothills Art Gallery is a remarkable discovery. It is housed in an old church building and has several galleries which show a great variety of good quality art, 2D and 3D art. I was privileged to see some great exhibits of exceptionally high standard and particularly enjoyed William Gee's marble sculptures. The Gallery has seven different exhibits on show each year so depending on when you visit there is always something new to see.. Every Thursday evening starting at 6pm they have free activities, but check if this is an option all year round. These activities are different each week. When I visited they had a wonderful aerial artist performing inside the main gallery. This Gallery will please everyone I am sure, as the friendly staff are most helpful.

I live in Golden and had family in town. We went to the Foothills Art Center with at least decent expectations given the reviews. There were 6 of us. We were all pretty much disappointed. Very small. Very few exhibits. The one highlight was the work of William Gee. The entrance price of $8 was too much for the 30 minutes we managed to get out of the place.

Dear dbackmr, We are so sorry to hear that you didn't have a great experience at Foothills Art Center. The feedback means a lot to us, and we are constantly striving to be a leader in the arts and engaging to all audiences. During your visit, we were in the process of taking down one exhibit and putting up another so unfortunately, you didn't get to see us at 100%. We would love for you to come and visit us again, we will have a new exhibit up on August 11th and our Holiday Art Market (which is free) in November. Please don't hesitate to email us at info@foothillsartcenter.org. Kind Regards, Anna S.

With some time to kill before dinner we opted to see if the Art Center was still open, and it was. It was the second to last day of an art show which was a pleasure to see. I'm always amazed at the talent and it was certainly evident here.
