As a Realtor who could live anywhere in the Denver area, I would only choose Arvada! It is beautiful, historic, has some of the best schools in Colorado and the nicest people anywhere. It's our own best kept secret!

I have lived in Arvada for over 25 years and it has been a great place to raise our family. We chose Arvada because of Olde Town Arvada and the "community feeling" we experienced the first time we drove through the city. The schools are excellent and our children are both graduates of Ralston Valley High School and are college graduates. There is so much to do here, but we are only minutes away from downtown Denver.

I was born and raised in Arvada and still call this small town home. I have never wanted to go very far from this beautiful place. Olde Town Arvada is great with plenty of shopping, eating, and entertainment. I can't imagine living anywhere else.

I lived in California my entire life (54 years) until I moved to Arvada two years ago. I can say without hesitation that Arvada is the best place I have ever lived and sometime wonder what took me so long to find this jewel of a community.

Arvada is the best of everything...very rural and yet only 20 minutes to the city; close to town and only 90 minutes to some of the best skiing and summer mountain sports in the world! Spectacular views of the Rocky Mountains, friendly neighborhoods, great people, unique small restaurants, lots of beautiful parks and enjoyable entertainment make this gem of a small town the only place to live.
