Tell me about Colorado

Recommended Posts

So, this may not be relevant to you, but they just started buiding these a few blocks away. E and I went to look at them and we LOVED them, the 2 car garage and the space usage was way better than what we bought, we totally would move if we could afford to.


Anyhow they are selling like FREAKING hotcakes.

Wow, thanks Erika. Seems like that's in the right price range as well. It's kind of cool looking for a place that costs the same that ours would probably sell for, yet it's an upgrade!

Erika that was a super breakdown of the area! haha


So yes we live in Arvada which is more of a northwest suburb of Denver. My hubby and I grew up in Thornton/Broomfield which is north of Denver, so when it came time to buy we just couldn't be too far away from our roots. Personally I am not a fan of the southern suburbs (Tech center, littleton, highlands ranch, lone tree, etc.) Nothing against them but I just grew up north and that is what we like.


So the Highlands, LOVE IT! I totally love the highlands. We rented there for a year before we bought our house and we were 5 mins from downtown BUT when we were there we NEVER fully enjoyed the downtown scene as much as we should have for being so close. Also yes, a lot of older and smaller homes, and there is a lot of fixing up going on over there. also the highlands is a bit more on the expensive side. We have a 2200 sqft house now in Arvada and prob would only have half that (maybe) if we were in the highlands for the same price.so for us that was just not worth it. *** side note though, my grandparents live in the highlands. we were over there for the 4th of July and I realized how "city" it is compared to where we are now. cute area but too much traffic for me! haha something I never truly noticed until recently!****


we wanted a backyard when we were renting, we looked to rent in Stapleton. Stapleton is COOL (more on the expensive side too though IMO) but there are no houses with a backyard in Stapelton...so that factor alone ruled that out for us because our dogs needed a yard.


Arvada, I love it too. From our house we are about 20 mins from Denver. It is a pain to go out downtown because after a few drinks we have to get a cab which is pricey but we really don't go downtown so for us that doesn't matter. The closest mall to Arvada is Colorado Mills which is a faux mall but I always find good things there (more like outlet shops)...that is like 10 mins from my house.


We are about 5 mins from old town arvada which is really changing (for the good!) http://www.historicarvada.org/

there are some cute restaurants there and little shops and such.


but ya any questions on the suburbs I know that part! :)

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
