Wellshire Reviews

1 review
I moved from Las Vegas, NV just about two years ago. I truly have fallen in love with Colorado and all of its enchanting beauties. There is a ton to do, not only the downtown and bar scene, but ESPECIALLY the great outdoors. I couldn't think of a better place to live. The reason I gave the feedback that I did, is because all you hear about our police force recently in the news. I love that we are implementing the police body cams on top of more street cameras. I think it is important that we all feel safe.
