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!
When raising a family, Broomfield is the way to go. From safe and quiet streets, to everything you need in walking distance, Broomfield has it all. The schools in the Broomfield area provide the resources needed to learn effectively and efficiently, while still remaining easily accessible and generous. Broomfield has many opportunities for healthy lifestyles from nutritious restaurants to farmers markets to get fresh food. One thing Broomfield is lacking in is affordability of real estate. It's a sellers market and a buyers nightmare. Every house for sale is either a dream home with a monstrous price, or a serious fixer-upper with a price way too high. I appreciate the feel and location of the homes, but the price tag makes every buyer want to run for the hills.
