Not all areas that have a Golden mailing address are actually a part of the City of Golden (we know, it can be confusing!). If you are uncertain whether you are within city limits or part of unincorporated Jefferson County, go to the Jefferson County Address Wizard, enter your address, and look under Municipal Status.
