A Top Suburb for Young Professionals, one of the Best Suburbs to Buy a House, a top 20 contender in Best Places to Live—Broomfield brings a lot the table. And when you live here, you can pretty easily see why.
The heart of the Rocky Mountains? An hour away. The bustling shopping and dining of Downtown Denver? Just a half-hour down the road. Easy access to biking, hiking, skiing, and more? Only minutes from your front door. Here are just a few of the reasons why life in Broomfield is a step above the rest.
Explore the Great Outdoors
While Rocky Mountain National Park is just a quick trip away, you’ll actually find plenty of options for exploring right around the Broomfield area. We’re big fans of Standley Lake Regional Park, located just ten minutes away and filled with 2,321 acres of fishing, boating, and hiking.
If you’re not big on aquatic recreation, check out other nearby spots like the Rocky Flats National Wildlife Refuge, the Carolyn Holmberg Preserve at Rock Creek Farm, and the Broomfield Commons Open Space.
Shop (& Dine) ’til You Drop
You don’t have to make the trek to Denver for tons of shopping options—Broomfield’s very own FlatIron Crossing offers 200 different selections! Here, you can find pretty much every big-name store you could ask for, including Apple, Coach, Dick’s Sporting Goods, GAP, J.Crew, and hundreds more.
Once you work up an appetite, Broomfield is home to a wide variety of mouthwatering flavors to choose from. We recommend trying the melt-in-your-mouth ribeye from Hickory and Ash, the hearty pastas at Scalzotto, and the butter chicken at Azitra.
Find Your Dream Job

With Denver just down the road, many residents choose to commute for work. In the city, you’ll find the largest employers to be the US government, the State of Colorado, the University of Colorado systems, and Centura Health.
