Arvada is located northwest of Denver in Jefferson County, near the Rocky Mountain foothills. This city of 100,000 residents began as a gold rush town and is said to be "the place where the Great Plains meet the Colorado Rocky Mountains." The town is situated amid some of the most magnificent scenery in the country, and with over 300 days of sunshine per year, outdoor recreation is key to the area. Over 135 miles of trails are located within the city limits for hiking, biking and horseback riding. In addition, a project called Trails 2000 is ongoing and is expected to link more than 200 miles of trails with urban parks and scenic mountain areas throughout Jefferson County. The American Hiking Society named this trail system "one of the best in the nation." Arvada also offers 76 city parks with 47 playgrounds, 42 tennis courts and 3 golf courses. Historic Olde Town Arvada is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is home to a weekly farmer's market every Thursday during the summer months, and also hosts several special events and festivals throughout the year. Other places of interest in the Arvada area include the Majestic View Nature Center, Buffalo Bill's Gravesite and Museum, the Colorado Railroad Museum and the Lookout Mountain Nature Center and Preserve. Arvada is just a short drive from the Denver International Airport and is easily accessible by Interstates 70, 76 and 25.

Arvada Weather & Climate

North-central Colorado has a semi-arid, continental climate with over 300 days of sunshine per year. It's a common misconception that due to its close proximity to the mountains and world-class skiing, that north-central Colorado has harsh winters. This is not entirely true. While there may be occasional bitter temperatures, storms do not last long. Periods of snow alternate with mild periods. The snow quickly melts with the mild daytime winter temperatures. The hottest months are July and August with an average high temperature of 74 degrees. The coldest month is January with an average temperature of 30 degrees. This region has four distinct seasons, and being along the eastern edge of the Rocky Mountains means weather patterns are subject to rapid, volatile, yet brief changes.
