Longmont is overall a good place to live. Longmont has many things to do that are family friendly: a bowling alley, movie theater, arcades, retail stores, and places to eat house fun places to be. The only things that makes Longmont a difficult place to live are the fact that housing is expensive, traffic can be bad, and Longmont doesn't house a shopping mall. These qualities don't diminish the great things Longmont has to offer though. I love living here!

Born and raised here! Watched it grow up and get cool! Young families and couples make it great for folks in their 30s. Breweries, restaurants, a movie theater, tons of school, cute neighborhoods. Close to Boulder, mountain views, I25 for commuting.
I have lived in Longmont since I was 2 months old. It has been a journey living in longmont and I had some ups and downs growing up. Yet, longmont environment is very nice and comforting to live. Longmont population is starting to expand more and prices for apartments, townhouses, and houses are starting rise up. Not just only Longmont that is getting expensive to live and expanding, but the whole entire cities of Colorado are starting to expand and prices are ridiculously to expensive to live. Yet, then again Longmont will always be my hometown and place to call home.
