The location of Lakewood is hard to beat. The Denver city skyline sits just east, whereas the Rocky Mountains act as a backdrop to the west. Coloradans utilize the mountains frequently. 6th Avenue, a main artery of the Denver Metro Area, runs from the center of Downtown Denver, through Lakewood, and towards the mountains. Therefore, those who live in Lakewood easily access attractions such as the Denver Center of Performing Arts or Coors Field in Denver and world-renowned ski areas about an hour west. Residents of Lakewood do not have to leave to access recreation and entertainment, however. Bear Creek Lake Park offers Colorado's version of a 'beach,' and attracts families who eat picnic lunches and enjoy the water on hot summer days. With nearly three hundred breweries in Colorado and more popping up every day, residents of Lakewood can visit any one of several breweries to enjoy local craft beers.
