Westminster

Centrally located along U.S. 36 between Denver and Boulder, Westminster offers beautiful mountain views and easy access to nearby shopping centers, restaurants, parks, and open space. Westminster offers a wide variety of housing options in both residential and urban settings.  

Westminster has made the preservation of open space a top priority since 1985 and currently has 2,850 acres of open land for residents to enjoy. Some of the most beautiful outdoor spots are the Big Dry Creek Trails, Ketner Lake, Hidden Lake and McKay Lake. 

The city’s use of open space has set it apart from other communities. Many neighborhoods here are surrounded by golf courses, parks, and open space. The open feel combined with good schools makes this a popular choice for families. 

One of Westminster’s most popular attractions is The Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center, a place where visitors interact with over 1,000 butterflies in a rainforest setting. The center teaches children and adults about butterflies, spiders and other critters in a hands-on experience that includes the possibility to hold a live tarantula. 

The Westminster Promenade is a great place to spend time with family or friends on a weekend. With outdoor restaurants and performance areas surrounding a lake, the Promenade feels like a resort and provides some of the city's best entertainment.
