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 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.
Westminster’s residents don’t have to look very far for something to do – outdoors or indoors.
