I have lived in commerce City for many years from Middle school to High School. I go do Horizon High School in Thornton Colorado because the school in Commerce City (Adams City) is not very great. I go to Thornton everyday so I have something to compare it to. Commerce City it much more of a community then others but is not the best looking or smelling. The houses are old and not very big but the people in them have been here for a long time and have a love for the city. I have grown to love where I live because of that reason. It may not be as fancy or modern as others but it is a tight community!

The New Commerce City is an amazing place to live! I have everything I need in this small town. I have amazing mountain views, love the many trails, parks, and new stores and restaurants coming in. It is a quiet and family oriented town, yet close enough to the big city if you want to go to a mall. The Buffalo Run Golf Course & Restaurant is amazing! The Rapids stadium with so many events to choose from, and we now have the Brand New Recreation Center. I love that the New Commerce City is family friendly and keeps us busy with so much to do.
Commerce City is constantly growing and improving. It’s still a rather cheap place to live, but a lot of work has been put in to improve it!
