I Miss Centennial!

I have lived in nearly a dozen cities around the US and Centennial, CO is one of those cities that I miss. Most of the cities that I have spent my time in were amazing but, this city stands out among them pulling at my heartstrings all the time.

Centennial CO is majestic with its clean streets and buildings. I love to walk down the downtown that are adorned with uniform trees, enticing cafes, stores and cuisines. I am quite attracted to the cool attitude of people living here. Some of the residential communities are great and affordable. One of the first things I do every weekend is head straight to shopping malls that hold farmers market.

Besides the opportunity to participate in various recreational sports, this city is home to some incredible and mouth-watering foods. The Asian cuisines are top notch and great to sit in a cool ambience. Jabb's BBQ has some delicious meat and the visit would not be complete without Abbo's pizza. You are seated in a comfortable setting in this medium sized cuisine. The menu along with water and condiments are served with a smile. It has the diversity that you are longing for in a pizza place. Many dishes in this place fuse American and European influences as well.

This city during the three years I have been has always made me feel so welcome. I have met some of the nicest people and have truly made great friends here. To get to know centennial CO you have to actual travel to this city. It has the charm that will offer a unique experience. If you don't have the time to explore other places in CO, do not worry, because you are in touch with the best part of your trip.
