Things to do in Evergreen. Of all of the mountain towns up in the Front Range of Colorado, Evergreen is the largest, and there will never be a lack of things to do. The town combines mountain living with in-town amenities and resources. The lifestyle is laid-back and friendly, and surprisingly close to nature for a place with so many conveniences. In fact, the April 2008 issue of Outdoor Life magazine included Evergreen in its list of “Best Places to Live – Top 200 Towns for Hunters and Anglers” at number 45. Their criteria for selection really describe perfectly how we feel about Evergreen: they “evaluated towns across America to find the places that offer world-class hunting and fishing, easy access to public land and water and vibrant economies that remain affordable and hospitable.”

Recreation Facilities. Evergreen’s Wulf Recreation Center gives the public a place to swim, play racquetball, play volleyball, play basketball, attend aerobics and more. Buchanan Park Recreation Center has a rock climbing wall, water slide, a current pool, sauna, hot tub and more. The beautiful Evergreen Lake House has many activities available for visitors and residents alike. You can enjoy skiing, boating, fishing, ice skating, hiking and much more. Visit bridges, boardwalks, or view the dozens of species of wildlife that meander through town every day. Enjoy a picnic overlooking the lake, or even host special events at the Lake house. And the Evergreen area has over 10 other parks that are available for you. You can enjoy horseback riding, rafting, attend winter activities, play golf at the Evergreen Public Golf Course or take advantage of some of the excellent Museums available in the city.

City Museums. Museums to attend include the Buffalo Bill Park Museum, Grave Golden Museum, Dinosaur Ridge, Hiwan Homestead Museum, Humphrey Memorial Park Museum, Morrison Natural History Museum and many other museums that are either in Evergreen or nearby. One of the most fun places for children would be the Dinosaur Ridge Outdoor Museum, which allows your children to see dinosaur tracks, vegetation fossils and bones. For anyone interested in the history of the old West, you could attend the Buffalo Bill Park Memorial Museum named for Buffalo Bill Cody. This museum is also wonderful for kids because there are several hands-on activities for children.

The Elks Lodge. The Elks Lodge was first a bowling alley in the 1960s. In 1967, the Elks purchased the bowling alley and turned the upstairs area into a ballroom, while the downstairs is a comfortable place for socializing. The Elks Lodge hosts the Evergreen Ragtime Bash each year.

Evergreen Jazz Festival. Every year in July, Evergreen hosts the Evergreen Jazz Festival. It was started when one of the local men, Sterling Nelson, had a birthday party in 1999. He had been the president of the Denver Jazz Club since the 1960s. There were eight jazz musicians who played for Sterling at that party, unrehearsed. The people loved it so much, that they decided they wanted to do it every year. The birthday boy and several volunteers organized the first event to start in 2001. They have been going annually ever since. If you move to Evergreen, you can volunteer to help with the event.

Another Evergreen musical watering hole worth visiting is the Little Bear saloon and restaurant. The Little Bear hosts live entertainment every night except Mondays. They have had many famous artists including John Lee Hooker, Jr., Jimmy Thackery, Leon Russell and many others. You can listen to great live music, dine and dance. The Little Bear is better known than the first governor of the state, after whom it is said to have been named. The building housing the Little Bear Saloon and Restaurant has been a feature of the town's history in many ways over the years, changing with the times – a drugstore, church, dance hall, and some say even a brothel. It became a bar in the 1960s. It was the Round Up, then the Red Ram Night Club before its present incarnation as the Little Bear. Another notable place you’ll want to be sure and experience is the historic “El Rancho” restaurant. They are open for lunch and dinner, just off I-70 on the Evergreen Parkway exit.

Famous events and people. Some famous individuals worth mention include Astronaut Jeffrey Ashby, MLB player Kevin Kouzmanoff and South Park co-creator Trey Parker, all of whom are graduates of Evergreen High. Country Star Willie Nelson has owned a ranch in town as well. Presidents Franklin and Teddy Roosevelt frequented the Troutdale Resort, a longstanding landmark which was destroyed in the 1960s. The 2004 Film Silver City featured the characters living in a home in the city of Evergreen.

Living in Evergreen. Although there is plenty of employment within the city limits, many residents choose to live in Evergreen and commute to their work places in Denver or the nearby area, because of the mountain lifestyle Evergreen provides without sacrificing the ability to be within a half hour of the big city.
