Broomfield is actually a neat town about 30 minutes north of Denver. I have lived here for 12 years now and have had some of the best experiences within the town. Although construction seems to be a consistent struggle, there is a lot of open space and parks to explore and hang around. I am grateful to have been able to grow up in such a family-friendly town. I attend a great public school within Broomfield and have met so many amazing people that I now call my best friends. Coincidentally, they all live in the Broomfield area too! As I mentioned before, I am glad to have been able to grow up in Broomfield and I hope that it will continue to be a family-friendly, inviting, enjoyable place.

This town is a bedroom community of Denver with mostly strip malls, chain restaurants, and a mall. The housing is appalling for what you get for the money. Even the more expensive homes often lack quality or character with carpeted bathrooms, skimpy moldings, and oak cabinetry. The yards often are communal backing right up to other homes to the side and behind it. There are also minimal trees in this town and this adds to the generic look to the place.
Creative types may find this environment oppressive. I've not met many creative or artistic types here at all but people who eat, sleep, and breathe sports. My time is thankfully up in this town as it is not a good fit for me at all, and I am glad to be gone!
I love living in Broomfield. It's nice to be out of the hustle & bustle of both Boulder and Denver. The community members here are so down-to-earth and friendly. I feel safe. I have great relationships with my neighbors. All consumer needs are closeby. They have great local programs and events to keep the community connected. We just bought a house here and are looking forward to living here for a very long time!
