I have lived in Edgewater for 10 years. In that time it has vastly changed. It used to be a very quiet town with very little social activity. Now, it has become a trendy place to live because of the newly built bars, shops, markets, and homes. Sloan's Lake is a big attraction to Edgewater because residents love the location and amenities it has to offer. Unfortunately, because of its growing popularity, the affordability of living there has skyrocketed. I love Edgewater and would not want to live anywhere else in Colorado.

Edgewater is beautiful with so many things to do! Take a trip to the lake, bring a boat or your walking shoes. Eat at some of the best lakefront restaurants or join in the fun on historic 25th avenue.
I love my home. Its affordable and centrally located. Sloans Lake is directly across the street giving me constant motivation to go outside. It absolutely stunning. One side of the lake gives you one of the best skyline views of the city, and the other has the perfect sunset over the Rocky Mountains. There is easy access to public transportation and any store you could need. The only thing I would change is for the people on the streets to find a trashcan for the constant litter.
