I have lived in Broomfield, Colorado for eighteen years. This town is booming with culture, diversity, great school programs and excelling parks and recreation. I would like to see the town open more eras for open space! Aside from that I highly enjoy Broomfield Colorado.
Seated in the middle of Denver and Boulder, Broomfield has the best of both, and a direct commute to both. Broomfield offers a quiet place to relax and take it easy. Although there aren't many places to go bar-hopping, Broomfield makes up for it with charm. Smaller owner-operated breweries and bars have selections that rival big chains. Broomfield is included in the Boulder Valley School District, which is one of the best in Colorado for K-12 education. This fact attracts many parents to buy homes in Broomfield. The area is very family friendly. Being close to the mountains, miles of trails through open space are available and well-maintained. The price of living has been steadily going up making it more difficult for young people just starting out to find footing, however, new constructions are adding more housing at a more affordable.
Broomfield is for children, old people and the rich. There are plenty of activities the city provides for small children and old people. Everything else you need money to do. Great place to raise a family. But there isn't a community with your neighbors, this is not a town that knows everyone. And unless you come in already knowing someone, you're going to have a hard time finding people. Because your neighbors just don't care. There is no downtown, new people always try and pass a bill to build a downtown area. It never gets passed because people who have been here long enough know that it's really pointless. We have plenty of places to eat and have fun, they just aren't in one area of town. People have been pushing for a downtown area for at least 20 years now. It's never going to happen. You'll understand once you've lived there long enough. All in all, it's not a bad place, it's not a great place, but it's decent enough.
