      Living in Wheat Ridge, Colorado is the only place I want to be. With over 30,000 people going out to restaurants, parks, bars, and shopping areas never gets boring. I love meeting new people everyday and making new friends and acquaintances is easy with so many people in our city. On top of the people, Wheat Ridge offers a ton of different amazing attractions that interest both residents and tourists daily. The top two best attractions in our city are for all of the sports lovers: Sports Authority Field and Coors Field. Game days are so much fun and I love getting to sit in the stands as our home teams play. The atmosphere is incredible and everybody is there to have a good time, so you’re all in a common practice.

      No worries if you’re not so into the sports life. Wheat Ridge offers many different art attractions like the Arvada Center for the Arts & Humanities. Or take a tour of the city through Segway Tours. What’s that you say? That sounds like a tourist attraction? It’s meant to be yes, but sometimes it’s just fun for my friends and I to spend a day riding segways in a city we live in and love.
