5 Reasons Why I Love Georgetown and Clear Creek County, Colorado

For most, living in a Colorado mountain town is more of a choice than a stroke of good fortune. Area local and special guest, Parker the Snow Dog, tells us why he loves living in his Colorado mountain town, Georgetown and Clear Creek County.


Parker Loves and Suggests a visit to Guanella Pass Brewery in Georgetown

Guenella Pass Brewery. Nothing better than hanging out with dad and enjoying a tasty cold beer at Guanella Pass Brewery. Dog-friendly inside and out, this place is a great place to meet new furry friends and relax. Try Parker’s official beer, the Bernese Mountain Brown Ale!

Mount Bierstadt (14,060′) accessed through Guanella Pass

Great Hiking and Camping. It’s nice to have scenic hikes and camping within minutes of my house. There are so many trails to explore and hike in Georgetown. I love to camp with dad next to the campfire under the bright stars up on Guanella Pass

Echo Lake Park

Cool Weather. I’m Parker the Snow Dog. I love cool weather and snow. Even in the summer, it’s much cooler than the hot summer days in Denver. If you’re looking for a cool dip in a lake, Check out Georgetown Lake, Echo Lake or one of the many lakes on Guanella Pass. Georgetown is where the cool dogs hang out. 

Loveland Ski Area & The Ridge Cat

Proximity to Work. I’m the mascot for Loveland Ski Area
so it’s nice being only 11 miles from my mountain. World class skiing & snowboarding is only 15 minutes away from my house!

The Alpine Restaurant & Bar

Dog-Friendly Restaurant Patios. Dad loves his food! There are multiple dog-friendly restaurant patios in Georgetown. Enjoy a great meal with your pup at Cooper’s on the Creek, Alpine Restaurant & Bar, The Happy Cooker, Pho Bay, Roundabout Burgers & Dogs, and Mother’s Saloon. Bon appetit!
