Living in Lakewood
Located just west of Denver and close to the mountains, Lakewood has an abundance of outdoor opportunities with dozens of parks and facilities throughout the city. For some retail therapy, hit Belmar’s big name stores and small boutiques. At Colorado Mills you can get your shopping fix and take part in cool events like the “Mini Model Build” put on by the LEGO Store and the “Super Duper Mini Chefs Event” where the kids can have their fun and eat it too. Also, if you have a set, be sure to pack your golf clubs because you won’t want to miss out on all the amazing area courses.
Relax and Settle In
If moving into your new apartment has left you with sore muscles and a bit more tension than you’d like, indulge in a deep tissue massage or hit the sauna at Elite Day Spa and Salon. Or take a deep, relaxing breathe and head over to The Spinning Yogi where you can take a variety of yoga classes and do some strength training too so you can actually move your furniture around with ease!
Need to pick up some furnishings to make the place feel more like home? If you’re excited about antiquing or just want a new refurb project, be sure to explore The Antique Mall of Lakewood. But if you want some serious retail therapy, know that Colorado Mills has more than 200 stores and plenty of restaurants and shops where you can recharge and refuel. Whether you’re into stretching or shopping, it will be easy to settle in and feel at home in your new apartment.
Explore the Outdoors
Lakewood has hundreds of acres of park land with a full range of facilities and amenities. Check out the mountain views at Forsberg Park, go for a walk on the trail, and let the pup run free in the four acres of fenced off parkland. For soccer and baseball fields, Beech Park is one of the many options, plus they have a wonderful playground for the kids. Pack the tennis rackets or soccer ball, bring the BBQ fixings, and head out for the day, because with parks all over the city, you’ll never be far from enjoying the great outdoors.
Cultural and Heritage Centers
The Lakewood Cultural Center is an artistic gem in the city. With events like the summer concert series and a variety of art classes in wood carving, papermaking, bronze casting, and more, there’s something creative for everyone. Learn to tap, belly dance, or break dance. You can even take a ballet or salsa workshop!
Take a tour of the Heritage Center museum and visit the local landmarks. Check out the Red Barn for historic tractors and farm equipment, or the Spirit of Lakewood exhibit for a tour through the city’s past. Sign up for a class on traditional rug hooking, or attend one of the Historical Luncheons for a nice meal with a guest lecturer. Even if you’re not a history buff, Lakewood knows how to celebrate the past by having a grand old time in the present.
The Denver and Lakewood region have a fantastic assortment of community gardens through D.U.G., the Denver Urban Gardens. With a focus on enabling a strong, healthy community, D.U.G. produces farm fresh foods and a unique learning setting. So when you’re all settled into your new apartment, it’ll be a great way to meet new people, save money on food, and be able to garden in the city.
