Westminster, Colorado Rings The Right Chimes 4.5 rating By Anonymous ( Jun 24, 2010) In order to tell you how I feel about Westminster, CO, allow me to first tell you how my visit came to be.

While stationed at Fort Huachuca Arizona I became interested in butterflies. After retiring from the Army I took a trip in April 2009, to a few places that cater for watch
...Read More ers like me. One of those places was 'The Butterfly Pavillion' in the city of Westminster Colorado.

Getting to Westminster was easy, only about 15 minutes outside of Denver on a well maintained highway.(Which if you travel as much as I do, you'll know how important that is). I travel in an R.V. for the convenience, occassionaly I must stop the wheels for awhile and stay on land. Several people I spoke with were staying in the local hotels and so I decided to stay at the Residence Inn for 3 days. Very nice place, wonderful staff and convenient to the roadways.

While in Westminster, I also took in the wonderful Armed Forces Tribute Garden. Locals expressed their respect for the Armed Forces in a truly beautiful way. Thank you, from a veteran.

Last night in Westminster, I laughed myself silly at the Wits End Comedy Club. Great Visit, just thinking about my travel experience to the city of Westminster puts a smile on my face. Read Less

Westminster, CO

Westminster is a mere nine miles from Colorado's State Capitol Building. This close proximity to the Denver Metro Area make it a popular choice for those who live or study in the dynamic Lower Downtown Denver area or one of the other outlying regions. Westminster's population has grown to over 100,000 after years of steady growth as the city has built more housing and developed the infrastructure and governance necessary to support a citizenry.

Tri-State Generation and Transmission is a local employer that is setting the pace for environmental protection. It employs a large segment of Westminster's population. Front Range Community College offers two-year Associate's Degree programs for those students who are looking to defer the cost of a four year university for the first part of their degree. The College also employs a large number of teachers and staff. Allos Therapeutics is a medical equipment manufacturer who provides generous pay and benefit packages to those who work for the company.

Home prices in Westminster have risen in recent years as home prices in the state have surged. This increase in pricing has been driven in large part by a number of Californians who have moved to Colorado in search of a lower cost of living and a strong economy. While the prices may have risen, there are still some bargains to be found for those looking to buy or rent a home in the Walnut Grove, Silo, or Pebble Brook North areas. Each of these neighborhoods offer easy access to Interstate 25 and other major thoroughfares that cut through the heart of Westminster.

RTD provides a public transit option that combines busses and rails to get students and workers around the city. There is direct service to Denver's universities that are very popular with college students when school is in session. Westminster can also be navigated by bike since the city has developed a number of bike routes that offer safe and exciting experiences for cyclists.

The Butterfly Pavilion is a small zoo that has a large collection of invertebrates. If you have a favorite invertebrate that you have been wanting to meet up-close and in-person, this is probably the place to do it. Clear Creek is a popular area of the city for those who love to recreate outdoors. Rowers, hikers, and campers flock to this area to take advantage of the natural beauty and adventure opportunities. You will find that the area is packed on summer weekends since it is such a short drive from the city.

Westminster offers residents a lot of options for shopping, entertainment, and worship. In general, the quality of life in Westminster is high. This is a large reason for its growth.
