The former agricultural and mining area of Jefferson County is now a thriving suburban expanse of metro Denver, where highly balanced business, industrial, and residential sectors provide an enviable quality of life. The Rocky Mountains cascade down verdant foothills to greet sweeping plains, offering some of Colorado’s most magnificent scenery. The region’s rolling grasslands, craggy rock formations, steep foothills, and rugged mountains have inspired the county to develop an ambitious, award-winning open-space program.
Here in the “Gateway to the Rockies” lies one of the state’s largest counties, harmonizing the delights of Colorado’s high country with suburban sophistication and urban advantages. Thriving Denver suburbs like Arvada and Golden contrast with unincorporated mountain villages. Even well-established communities like Lakewood have managed to preserve a wealth of land for recreational activities, evidence of careful planning and a vision of environmental awareness and controlled growth shared by planners and residents.
State-of-the-art hospitals, medical centers, family clinics, emergency care centers, long-term care facilities, and rehabilitation centers are all accessible to Jefferson County residents. Lakewood is home to the Veteran’s Administration offices for the entire state as well as a number of specialized health-care facilities. The public school district is the largest in the state, effectively managing the education of nearly 89,000 students from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade.
Opportunities for higher education range from the local Red Rocks Community College to respected state universities and premier private colleges like the county’s own Colorado School of Mines. Nearby Boulder is home to Colorado University (CU), while the CU Health Science Center is located minutes from home in Denver. Students, residents, visitors, and business executives share an extensive and highly efficient transportation network, encompassing major interstates, high-speed freeways and parkways, RTD mass transit options, and Denver International Airport.
Jefferson County’s rich legacy of natural beauty and variety of terrain at the edge of the Denver metro area is surpassed only by the diversity of its communities. Newcomers can settle into a highly urbanized neighborhood in Lakewood or a rustic cabin surrounded by towering pines in an alpine village. Modern shopping malls contrast with quaint retail districts filled with antiques and collectibles, while restaurants from elegant to the most casual cater to every whim and fancy. Appreciation for the arts is evident at every turn. The spectacular Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities is nationally recognized for the quality of its facilities and programming. Even a small alpine town like Evergreen claims an impressive list of performing arts events and cultural or historic attractions.
Regardless of the environs or lifestyle you choose, the unrivaled recreational opportunities of the Rocky Mountain region will always be close to home.
