The Restaurant In The Middle Of Nowhere That’s So Worth The Drive From Denver

In 1962, Frank and Barbara Finn founded the historic Gold Hill Inn, and fortunately for us, not much has changed since. A trip down the winding dirt road to this remote restaurant near Denver is like going back in time to the old days of homesteaders, prospectors, miners, and a much simpler, albeit harsher, existence. Tucked away in a quaint community 10 miles and 3,200 feet up the mountain from Boulder, the Gold Hill Inn is a charmingly eclectic and utterly delicious dining experience everyone should enjoy at least once in their lifetime. (But if you know what’s good for you, you’ll make yourself a Gold Hill regular.)
