Today I wanted to take the time to enjoy and share our town and the scenery around us. I am happy to share this, as I live in the city of Westminster in the beautiful state of Colorado. We have been here 10 years as of January, and feel it was one of the best moves we have made. I love all the beauty that is around us that we get to enjoy every day. With that said, here are some pictures and information about the city of Westminster.
Westminster is a northwest suburb of Denver, in Adams and Jefferson counties and is the seventh most populous city in the state of Colorado. It is also the 237th most populous city in the United States, and was ranked as the 24th best place to live in the USA by Money magazine, July 2006.
The main hub of this city is the City Civic Center or City Hall, and is located at 92nd and Sheridan. One of the joys from me of living in Westminster is being able to see and hear the bell tower which rings every hour from 8-5. If you are so inclined, you can climb the 181 stairs to the top of the tower for a fabulous view of the entire metro area and the Rocky Mountains. We haven’t done it, but it sounds amazing.
I also love the fact that there are so many stores, restaurants and shops to explore and visit. I really enjoy hanging out at the Westminster Promenade. They even have a bowling alley that our church used for our league. I also love sitting out and enjoying an ice cream while people watching. It is great little center.
Saying the view of the Rockies from Westminster is beautiful would be a huge understatement. They are actually phenomenal. especially when they are show capped. I head west to work every day, and never get tired of seeing them as I drive in each morning. Each day they can look different than they did the day before. I hope I never lose that sense of awe.
Westminster has been very good to us and I am very happy to be a resident of this beautiful state. If you don’t live here, and ever have a chance to come visit, you should definitely visit our “little” city. The list of fun things to do in Westminster is endless, and you will find everything you need for doing business and having fun.
