Arvada, Colorado, is a beautiful city in the northwest of the Denver Metro Area. Although Arvada was originally a settlement in its own right, today it is a suburb of Denver, with many of its 112,000 residents commuting to the city every day. Homes in the area are mostly brick ranch-style, single-family homes and duplexes. There are also many small, four-to-eight-unit complexes, several modern apartment buildings, and a few mobile home parks.
Getting around Arvada is relatively easy, with a dependable public transit system and well-maintained city streets. Arvada has easy access to Interstates 70 and 76 as well as Interstate 25 and the Denver-Boulder Turnpike, making commuting to either Denver or Boulder easy and convenient. A light-rail line, the G or Gold Line, is scheduled to open in 2016. The G Line will connect Arvada with Wheat Ridge to the west, run east toward Pecos Junction and finally south all the way to Denver's Union Station. At Union Station, riders can get connections all over Denver through the Regional Transportation District (RTD) or board Amtrak's California Zephyr to either Chicago or San Francisco.
