Lyons is a town in Colorado that is lovingly referred to as, "The Double Gateway to the Rockies." The town sits at an elevation of 5,374 feet and has a rich history, as it was home to several Native American tribes throughout the centuries before being settled by gold seekers from Europe around the mid-1800s. 

This unique town is nestled in the middle of several mountains and gulches. It was officially incorporated in 1891. The area is full of sandstone and soon became home to many successful quarries. The railroad expanded into the area to move all of the precious sandstone shipments across the country. Today, the town is still serviced by the Burlington Northern Railroad for moving stone. 

Families looking to move into Lyons love the area for its old-world charm and quaint setup. The town is divided by a main street, providing a scene to attract visitors looking for a place to do some window shopping while they are in town. There are two dog-friendly restaurants in the town, both serving up plenty of delicious food that you can enjoy on an outdoor patio with your pup. 

The nearest animal hospital is about 15 minutes to the east in the town of Longmont.
