Arvada, CO

show info

Don't laugh. It's true: Arvada, Colorado, is the world's largest producer of crispy, crunchy celery. Incorporated back in 1904, Arvada has been an agricultural hotspot since then, especially when it comes to growing stalks of delicious celery. Though celery has been earning the people of this town a steady income for over a century, it was gold that first put Arvada on the map. This precious mineral was found in the Rockies in the mid-1800s, sending legions of eager prospectors scurrying West in search of it. You won't have to fight it out to stake your claim in Arvada today; all you'll have to do is track down a great apartment and sign the lease. What a relief that is!

A World of Great Cuisine

<p>Do you like Indian food? Arvada may be on the other side of the planet from the Indian sub-continent but it doesn't disappoint when it comes to great Indian cuisine. Don't take our word for it, though; head to Yak and Yeti and try some curry for yourself. This is a restaurant that's sure to make your taste buds soar. It's also in a restored Victorian building with great ambiance, so if you've got a thing for history and a thing for tandoori chicken, you'll be doubly wowed.</p>

Exploring the Great Outdoors

<p>When most people think of Colorado, they imagine beautiful, snow-covered mountains, and pristine, unspoiled forests. It just so happens that this picture of Colorado is pretty close to reality. Arvada may be just a few miles from Denver, but it's also just a few miles from the Rocky Mountains. Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests are two of the nation's most beautiful parks and both are conveniently close to Arvada. Whether you're into hiking, camping, backpacking, mountain biking, hunting, fishing, or wildlife watching, you'll find something to enjoy in these forests. Since they're so close to Arvada, it's possible to visit just for the day or to pack the tent and stay longer. In the winter, the snow may make it difficult to hike and bike, but it does make it much easier to ski. (Much, much easier- and safer, too.) Downhill and cross country skiing are two of the most popular pastimes in this high-altitude state. People actually come to Colorado from all around the world to get a taste of its fabulous slopes. Winter, spring, summer, or fall, you're going to love living in Arvada.</p>

Workin' on the Railroad

<p>In 1870, the tracks were laid out to connect the Colorado Central Railroad to the Kansas Pacific Railroad and the Denver Pacific Railroad. Just where did these three railroads converge? Why, in Arvada, of course! Back then, the area was known as Ralston Point, but the name was changed to honor Hiram Arvada Haskin, one of the town's early settlers. If you're a fan of local history, be sure to get connected with the area's historical society so that you can learn all about the people who built this town by workin' on the railroad.</p>
