I remember growing up in Arvada and thinking “what a boring place to be,” “there is never anything to do around here,” “I cannot wait until I graduate so I can move somewhere else.” Luckily I grew out of that stage and stayed an Arvadan.
It is wonderful to see the changes and growth that the city has had over the last 30 years. Olde Town Arvada is now a highly sought after location, instead of a ghost town. I am looking forward to raising my kids here, and knowing that they will never have a shortage of things to do (although I am sure they will feel that way, as all kids do!).
