I love the clean community and neighborhoods. Housing prices are high however! It is a great place to work with many quality employment opportunities. There is a great variety of retail areas and the city is really booming. With the new expansion there is a lot of new construction which has made traffic very congested at times. A large variety of entertainment venues to include comedy clubs, live music and many microbreweries. Westminster also has great schools and excellent parks. It is a very family friendly community and I feel priveledged to be living here and raising my children here.

Some Things one Needs To Know About Westminster, Colorado. It's an up-and-coming city of its own. I think it’s about time Westminster broke out from the shadow of Denver and Boulder.

Westminster is guaranteed to be good living especially with all the perks of a big city without the bad.
With friendly people and year-after-year events, Westminster is the perfect blend of city and suburbs. Also having Denver, Boulder and Aurora so close, along with the beautiful mountains the Rockies, you’ll can never run out of exciting things to do.
I love Westminster! It has everything you would want in a suburb. Always shopping, dining, and entertainment options. The city is close to it's surrounding cities so there are numerous possibilities! The only thing I think Westminster need to change is their housing development. They are building too many houses, therefore congesting the city and making residents who have lived here for a long time displeased.
