Arvada residents truly get the best of everything. As a popular commuter town, it is only nine miles away from Denver and about 30 miles away from Boulder. Residents can enjoy the big city and then head home for a more relaxed, laid-back atmosphere. Arvada is also in the backyard of the Rockies, which means hiking, camping, biking, canoeing, and more are closeby. Residents enjoy 164 acres of trails and mountain views in the urban Van Bibber Park. Over at the Majestic View Nature Center, residents connect via their love for the environment. Locals also enjoy congregating at the Arvada Farmers Market for fresh produce from local farms.
Dining, Entertainment & Shopping
They make their own beer and excellent Indian food over at Yak & Yeti, and the Honey Chicken Curry is outstanding. For a quirky and memorable meal, grab a burger and one of over 50 beers at the School House Kitchen & Libations, built inside the original Arvada schoolhouse from the 1800s. Over at Steuben’s, you can pick up some down-home American food — fried chicken, anyone? Or relax on a Saturday afternoon, nibble a pastry, and sip the best coffee ever at Hunter Bay Coffee.
Enjoy Broadway favorites, classes, art exhibits, and summer concerts at the Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities. Vintage automobile lovers will adore the outrageous vintage and rare automobile displays at Cussler Museum. You can also join the wine club at the Silver Vines Winery in Olde Town, where they pair the best cheese with their own wine. Of course, there is always the allure of Olde Town itself with its restaurants, bars, delis, boutiques, gift shops, clothing stores, art studios, jewelry shops, and more.
