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!
Broomfield is a rapidly growing city in Colorado. We love it here! The people are friendly and supportive. There is a culture of entrepreneurs and a deep respect for nature. As the city continues to grow, I hope to see more roads built and better internet connectivity.
