Diversity and charm mark Lakewood, the largest municipality in
Jefferson County, and one of the largest cities in Colorado.

Lakewood was a city before being officially recognized and
incorporated in 1969. For a long time the city had no real
downtown, instead West Colfax Avenue functioned as the city’s
faux downtown and place for residents to work, hangout, and
find good food and beverages. Since then Belmar has become
the town’s center. It provides a mix of residential spaces, retail,
and public areas, as well as hosting cultural celebrations. An ice
skating rink lit by twinkle lights graces the town center during the
winter and summers are filled with live music and movies.

With over 99 parks, 7,000 acres of open space and 180 miles
of trails, Lakewood’s appeal as a family-friendly, community-centered and diverse place to live only increases. Don’t forget to
visit Casa Bonita, the famed Mexican restaurant with cliff-divers
and endless fun.
