I have grown up in Centennial and I absolutely love it. The schools are fantastic and my neighborhood is great for families with kids of all ages and pets. Centennial is home to everything you would ever need and we're close to fun attractions like Elitch Gardens, the Denver Zoo, the Botanical Garderns and museums. Having lived in other parts of Colorado, I can safely say that Centennial is one of the best places to be. Centennial is amazing!

Centennial provides a unique blend of breathtaking scenery and consumerism. While there are lots of local shops and chain restaurants there are also just as many recreational parks nearby. Centennial is the perfect place for those who enjoy being close to society but need to escape every now and again. I highly recommend Centennial!
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!
