About Westminster, Colorado

Those who prefer the slower pace of suburban life over the fast-paced big city life may find that Westminster, Colorado, offers the perfect mix of open space and desirable amenities.  Conveniently located along the U.S. Highway 36 route that connects Denver and Boulder, Westminster offers various shopping centers, restaurants, businesses, and scenic mountain views.

Westminster’s population is approximately 115,000, and its top employers represent the technology, medical, and energy fields.  It offers a variety of housing options with high-end and luxury apartment options and modern townhomes.  In addition, Westminster has 30 residential neighborhoods with locations that span from inside the city limits to some rural areas.  Its school system, like others in the Denver suburbs, is among the best.

Westminster City Hall features a 14-story bell tower that was designed and constructed as a tribute to Big Ben in Westminster, England.  Viewed as a symbol of unity, the Lord Mayor of Westminster, England, attended the 1986 groundbreaking ceremony for the City Hall and bell tower.  Today, an English Oak tree, a gift from Westminster, England, to commemorate the 1986 visit, still lives on the City Hall property.
