We recently moved from downtown Denver into our first home in Arvada near Standley Lake, which is about 15-20 minutes from downtown Denver. So far, we’re loving it in the burbs and having the lake so close by and the views are spectacular.
It doesn’t matter how many times we walk around this lake … it always stuns me with its beauty. Inside Denver, you can access some great nature as well. Last year, my sister got me a membership to the Denver Botanic Gardens, and recently, we were finally able to get out there for a visit, which was really quite lovely.
