Centennial is a safe place with plenty of things to do. If you're having trouble finding your activity in centennial, it's not hard to jump on the light rail (public transport) and be in the heart of Denver in a short amount of time. People are friendly, schools are good, and there is plenty of work opportunity. One thing Centennial lacks, is a large amount of diversity. A lot of people think the same way, but at least they have common interests!

I love Centennial due to it's safe neighborhoods and clean atmosphere. I have a great commute to both Orthodontic offices that I work at, about 20 minutes each way. One is in Denver and one in Littleton. I hear the schools are great, and there is one just a couple miles down the road from my house! The cost of living in comparison to Denver is great, and much more affordable!
Centennial is a great neighborhood! I am in my mid 20s and I can see that it is geared more towards families and is a lot more laid back than Denver proper. I, personally, like the more laid back neighborhood. That plus the fact that Centennial is a good 20-25 minute drive to downtown Denver makes this a great neighborhood!
