Northglenn is a perfect place for family! This is a great place to settle down if you want to be close to the adventures in the Rocky Mountains. You aren't too far from the amusements and thrills of downtown, but you aren't drowned with commutes. The roads in this area are very well kept, especially with the weather damage here in Colorado. There are occasional car races and commotions, but the police are active in keeping the neighborhood safe. Tons of local businesses make this area thrive with the culture of its inhabitants; from Italian restaurants, to Asian buffets, to taquerias, to boba shops, to Indian cuisine, diversity and variety is a thing we pride ourselves in. Parks are beautiful and cared for and the schools are alright. The community is always very kind and welcoming, I myself am excited to see this city grow!

Northglenn may not be as well kept as Westminster and Broomfield are, but everything you need is practically walking distance! Grocery stores, gyms, thrift stores, gas stations, amazing restaurants like Bad Daddy's and Parry's Pizza, and gorgeous parks. Webster Lake is right here and it's beautiful! When you're strapped for money, this place to me is fantastic. I feel very fortunate to have access to so many necessities without having to brake the bank on the apartment I live in.
I have been living in Northglenn for over a year now and I have no regrets. The community is very family-friendly but not too stuffy for the younger crowd. We don't have the nightlife scene quite like downtown does, but we have plenty of breweries and dining to choose from. There are several parks within walking distance of most communities and some that are definitely worth driving to. Cost of living is very reasonable and you'll see a wonderful mix of humans varying in race, age, education, etc. I personally do not have children so I cannot speak about the public schools that surround us and I also am a renter currently so I cannot speak the housing market.
