I am a single mother of two teenage daughters and am relocating from grand junction Colorado. I feel that being in the Denver area will give both myself and my girls more opportunities for growth in all areas and give them more options other than sitting around the house. It's either too hot or too windy and the pay is horrible.I have seen many good things about Arvada CO but I need to know how good are the schools jobs and since I don't have a really high income spending an arm and a leg on rent is out of the question for me. Please help. Please and thank you,
Amanda

Denver area is rather pricy for renting and buying. Colorado Springs would be far more reasonable.

It appears 3 bedrooms in Arvada start at $1500 per month and go up to $1800, $2000 and beyond. https://denver.craigslist.org/search...=&query=arvada

Grand Junction area resident checking in here.

Arvada IS one of the nicer areas in the metro area. Hopefully CD's poster LiveContent will weigh in here. He's a long time Arvada resident and can give you a lot of good advice. Keep another thing in mind regarding your dislike for windy conditions.

Once you get to the extreme west side of Arvada you get nasty winds when a cold front comes in, particularly two areas; Indiana Avenue that hooks up from west 64th avenue and heads north going past the west entrance to where Rocky Flats is located and also Colorado 93 that goes from Golden to Boulder. They had a nasty cold front that went through there day before yesterday and the winds were blowing at a steady 50 mph clip. It isn't THAT common to see the winds that strong in November but it certainly is when you get to late January through March. I put in time out at the Flats in the 1970's. I know.

If you are insisting the Denver area, north Englewood near Swedish Hospital has good neighborhoods about it, as does the south west corner of Englewood around the area of Kalamath and Lipan on west Chenango. Again, a tad pricey.

Good luck!

There are lots of nice areas in the Denver metro with good schools, of which Arvada is only one. I suggest that you do some reading through the many threads on this forum to acquaint yourself with the area.

What kind of work do you do and what would you expect to find in Denver? What is the most that you can afford to pay for rent? We really can't help you out unless we know more about you.

If you don't HAVE to stay in Colorado and/or don't HAVE to move to metro Denver, maybe you should also consider Salt Lake City.
