Broomfield is a little town in the suburban area of Denver with a population of 68,000. There is so many activities to do around here since most of the city has a lot of nature walks and open space parks to gather with friends and family. It is very clean and has a beautiful view of the mountains everywhere you go. The school district has been known by the news that we are the top ten best school districts in the state. They are cute cafes and brunch restaurants to sit outside and enjoy the fresh air. Everyone is so friendly. Overall, it is a very healthy living environment to be in!

Broomfield public areas are well-maintained, schools are good, and neighborhoods are safe. Broomfield’s location is great. We are close to multiple highways, restaurants and shopping. Broomfield is close to Denver and Boulder. We love it!
Broomfield is a very nice and wonderful city that is expanding very fast and growing quickly. Broomfield is a very family friendly town with lots of opportunities and fun activities to do both outside and inside. It is a very safe environment with many great public schools for all ages. The only downside to this city right now is the upcoming fracking that has been built in many different locations. The big walls and machines make the town look less appealing but do not make too huge of an impact. Overall, Broomfield is a great family friendly town with many outdoors activities and a great community.
