From what used to be an agriculturally based town, Arvada is fast growing while still keeping its country roots. The area sits just North of I70, East of 93, South of 88th Ave and West of Tennyson St. Arvada’s commute to Denver, Broomfield and Boulder are short and the escape to the mountains is easy which is why so many people choose to live here! Arvada Olde Town is filled with tons of unique shops and restaurants and old cobblestone walk ways. Arvada also has one of the largest Cultural Arts Centers in the country. Being west of the city and on the way to the mountains, Arvada is home to so many great hiking and biking trails and parks that many residents enjoy utilizing.
