For the Modern Pioneer, Who’s Not Willing to Settle
When Horace Greeley uttered the words “Go West Young Man, and grow up with the Country,” he undoubtedly had the Front Range of Colorado in mind. It’s an amazing contrast when the plains meet the Rockies, and a stunning visual, even for those who see it every day. Whether you’re a true native, or a brand new resident of the Centennial State, the closer to the mountains you can live, the better. Located on metro Denver’s west side, Wheat Ridge perfectly blends city convenience and great mountain accessibility. With easy access to I-70, Wheat Ridge is just a short ride from downtown Denver and the alpine playgrounds to the west. And, with access to the new Light Rail, you can hop on a train to work in the city, or catch a flight at Denver International Airport, and leave the driving to the pros.
Wheat Ridge offers incredible educational opportunities, both public and private. From K-12 and beyond, the city is chock full of options for children of all ages and adults alike. Colorado is known as a mecca for outdoor pursuits. From youth and adult league sports at the Stenger Soccer Complex to the 300-acre Wheat Ridge Greenbelt, there’s room to spread out in the heart of the city. Clear Creek Trail is a popular regional trail connecting Denver to Golden, with 6.5 miles of paved trail winding its way through Wheat Ridge. A multitude of parks, including some exclusively reserved for our furry friends, are the perfect place to enjoy Colorado’s 300-plus days of sunshine.
With annual events like its homegrown Carnation Festival, and eclectic offerings showcasing everything from Tiny Houses to R&B, Wheat Ridge and neighboring communities know how to offer a western welcome. Summer offerings include great food, drink, music, history, and heritage, highlighting the spirit of the former western outpost.
If you’re looking for new construction developments where you can find the perfect place to settle in and call your own, Wonderland has a brand new community with single-family homes and row homes close to the light rail to help homeowners make the most of all that Wheat Ridge has to offer.
