The weather is heating up, we're almost to the weekend, school is a month away from ending and people are looking forward to their summer events. A big complaint with the west Arvada area, was that everything was so far away. Well the community has taken that complaint seriously and now there is so much to offer!

With Arvada being a suburb of Denver, you are close to many nearby towns such as Boulder, Downtown Denver and Golden. All of these places offer many different shopping experiences. Boulder for example, hosts Pearl Street with many clothing shops and boutiques. Downtown Denver has 16th St Mall and in Golden you can walk down Washington Ave and find many clothing options. Of course you have your standard malls throughout the area like Colorado Mills and Flatirons Crossing, but Boulder, Golden and Downtown offer a huge variety in options outside of your standard stores.
Whether you're moving to Arvada, visiting or just looking for something new to do, I hope we were able to provide a few items to add to your summer bucket list!
