Westminster is a safe and great environment to live in. This suburb is about 20 to 30 minutes away from downtown Denver. With that being said, the night life and diversity is great. There are many bars and clubs in Denver that will leave you wanting to come back for more. The restaurants here are very diverse as well. Whatever the taste, Mexican, Asian, you name it, Westminster has it all. Westminster is also close to Boulder, which is known for its spectacular views of the mountains and its thrilling outdoor experiences. Westminster may be lacking in activities, but it is the center point that allows its residents to enjoy short commutes outside to have amazing experiences.
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.
