Hi, I posted a few weeks ago, about a possible move to Denver from NC. Well, I was offered the job, and will be moving soon! In my original post I was asking about Littleton, and that's still on the radar, but I've also been looking in the Conifer/Evergreen area. I'll be working about Kipling and 6th Ave. According to a few different online maps, that would be about a 40 minute commute. Is that realistic? Or is that google-map-wishful-thinking? There's a few other areas I've looked at, too, Broomfield and Westminster. I'm guessing they'd be less time than Conifer/Evergreen would be for the commute, but I'm wondering how congested that would be. Any thoughts on that?

Thanks much!

I think that 40 minutes would be a realistic commute time as long as you aren't looking to live up some crazy mountain road and want to settle within a reasonable distance off of I-70 or Hwy 285.

Try Morrison, Lakewood, Golden or Kittridge for a shorter commute.

I live in S. Evergreen and I think that would be a very reasonabe commute. I love Evergreen, moved to the SE area of Denver originally and wasn't crazy out it. Moved to Evergreen 8 months ago and still wake up every day pinching myself. I love the small community feel, schools are fantastic and the scenery is to die for. We were nervous about the snow but have to say that JeffCo does 10x better job of removing it than Douglas County did so it's less of an issue than when we lived in Parker.
