Arvada Colorado is a lovely city of over 100,000 residents, located northwest of Denver near the Rocky Mountains foothills. This is a town rich with historic significance near some of the most spectacular natural resources in the country. What began as a gold rush town in the 1850s later turned into a small farming community of approximately 100 when some of the settlers realized that crops – not gold – would help them make a good living. They planted wheat, corn, oats, berries and vegetables in the fertile soil and a thriving community was born. The town of Arvada was incorporated in August of 1904, and it slowly grew and today is a mixture of old and new. Arvada’s quaint Olde Town area is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is the site of a weekly farmer’s market during the summer months and other special events throughout the year. The town of Arvada has 76 total parks located within the city limits, and a trail system that links downtown to the foothills. There is a total of 1,500 acres of designated parks and sports complex land, open space with areas for hiking, jogging and bicycling. The residential community is crisscrossed by a unique system of creeks and canals with more than 125 miles of trails for hiking, biking and horseback riding. Culture and entertainment is also a part of life in Arvada. The Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities provides musical and drama theater, pop and classical music concerts, children’s theater and a history museum. All of this is located within the Arvada city limits, not to mention all the nearby attractions in the Boulder/Denver/Rocky Mountain foothills area.

National parks and state forests, wilderness areas and historical sites are all just a short drive from Arvada. The town’s close proximity to the Rocky Mountains provides numerous other opportunities for mountain biking, backpacking, fishing, white water rafting, boating and camping. The Rocky Mountains are known for their world-class ski resorts - unparalleled for their alpine skiing, snowboarding, sledding and cross-country skiing. Located less than a half-hour drive away are attractions such as the Buffalo Bill Museum, Red Rocks Amphitheater, the Colorado Railroad Museum and much more. Although considered a suburb of the Denver Metropolitan area, Arvada retains a hometown environment with friendly residents and safe neighborhoods – it has one of the lowest crime rates in the Denver metro area. Arvada has everything for an exciting, fun-filled vacation, fine restaurants and lodging, and 300 days of sunshine per year – more than San Diego or Miami. Great weather for getting out and exploring all that the area has to offer, anytime of the year. Arvada is located near the Denver International Airport and is accessible by three interstate highways, I-70, I-76 and I-25. Residents and visitors enjoy the beautiful views of the mountains, lakes and valleys with easy commutes to the Denver business district and other mountain communities.
