Broomfield is called what it is because Mayberry was already taken...

Great city that is only going to get better. I am not a fan of suburbia but if you are going to live in it, Broomfield is as good as it gets. Quiet but engaged community between Denver and Boulder.

Great grocery stores. Awesome little shops like Burritos-to-go!!!, Big Dog Deli, 3 Chicks Kitchen... These are my favorite but there are so many more.

If you found this site because you are think about moving north of Denver, well I hope this helps.

Broomfield Sucks

I'm sure its ok if you are a desk jocky, but if you happen to be self employed and drive a truck for a living, even a pick up truck and a twenty foot trailer, you can't bring it into the city limits and park it, even in your OWN backyard, with a six foot privacy fence blocking EVERYTHING!

Broomfield is VERY anti blue collar. It used to be a good quiet place. No more. If you are one of those people who feel you need some form of Government telling you what you need to do all the time, Broomfield is for you. If you just want to pay your taxes, live your life honestly and be left alone, DO NOT MOVE TO BROOMFIELD.
