About Arvada

According to Apartment Therapy, Arvada is one of “The Coolest Suburbs in America”.

A variety of boutiques, galleries, restaurants, breweries, and even a winery can be found in Old Town Arvada, which is on the National Register of Historic Places. It is also called the “Gateway to the Rockies” and is full of historical landmarks, such as the Arvada Flour Mill and Gallery 1874, the oldest building in the city. An Arvada-based gallery, Gallery 1874, is a well-known event venue. It has a gallery highlighting the work of local artists, featuring a hand-finished gold ceiling commemorating the gold nugget found in Arvada, which ignited the Colorado Gold Rush, as well as Swarovski crystal chandeliers.

Would you like to have fun no matter what the season is? There are plenty of activities to enjoy in Olde Town Arvada. Every year, the community hosts artwork walks, a farmers’ market, and Flicks in the Square on Fridays in August. The town also hosts family-friendly events around holidays, including its annual St. Patrick’s Day Festival, Halloween trick-or-treat fest, the Mayor’s Christmas Tree Lighting, and more.

As another community icon, the Arvada Center for Arts and Humanities is the largest arts venue outside of Denver in Colorado. Visual arts are exhibited year-round, and award-winning actors, singers, and dancers perform on the indoor stage. Throughout the summer, shows are held in the outdoor amphitheater, including symphony orchestra and ballet performances.

Community is very important in Arvada. In addition to having some of the best public schools in the state, its economy is booming.

Arvada’s proximity to Denver provides residents with all the benefits of living near a massive city while still living a small-town life. Interested in moving to Arvada?
