Boasting a year-round population under 10,000, Evergreen is a refreshing surprise and delight to those who venture up Interstate 70 or Highway 74, the two major roads that service the area, to see for themselves what all the fuss is about.
Sitting at an elevation of 7,220 feet above sea level and located just 29 miles west of the state capital of Denver, Evergreen has an undisturbed natural beauty that requires no further promotion than a first glance. Named for the proliferation of evergreen trees that surround the area, the city of Evergreen is bordered by a mountain range, Bear Creek and the Big Thompson River. Visitors can expect adventure in any one of the many parks and picturesque public outdoor spaces.
Once a favorite getaway to the likes of famous historical figures, such as actress Greta Garbo and former President Teddy Roosevelt, in downtown you'll discover local cuisine to be enjoyed in cozy bistros, a wide range of art galleries dotting the main avenue, as well as museums to inform the inquisitive.
