Located just 20 minutes Northwest of Denver, the city of Arvada is a mixing pot of charm and innovation. Boasting Jefferson County schools and an excellent commuting distance, Arvada is perfect for families looking to be close to both the city and the mountains. OLDE TOWN ARVADA The main entertainment district in Arvada, Olde Town has the small-town charm so many desire. Home to restaurants and shops, the main streets are perfect for a Saturday stroll.

Start your day out by stopping by Rheinlander Bakery and picking up some delicious pastries and coffee.

Continue your day by stopping by the library on the East side of the Olde Town square. Thirsty? Head to Denver Beer Co., or Silver Vines Winery. Take in a show at the Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities, and then be sure to grab some homemade ice cream at Scrumptious afterwards!

Be sure to also check out the weekly farmers market in the Olde Town square, occurring Spring-Fall.

GET ACTIVE Arvada has 125 miles of hiking, cycling, and horseback trails, and is only a short drive from the foothills for more adventure!

For the indoor crowd, take the kids to the Apex Center, with its indoor pool and slides! If you’re feeling like you need an educational day, tour the Rocky Flats Institute and Museum, which details the Rocky Flats nuclear weapons plant (now demolished). Or, for those fond of vintage cars, check out Clive Cussler’s (yes, THAT Clive Cussler) collection of automobiles from May-October at the Cussler Museum.


The light rail services Arvada by way of the G Line, and will take you from Arvada to Union Station downtown.

A quick drive on I-70 from the East or West will take you to Wadsworth, and then a quick drive up to Olde Town.
