Ready to Move to Lakewood, Colorado? You’ll Need These 7 Things

Lakewood, Colorado, is another of the vibrant communities surrounding Denver.

If you’re thinking of moving to Lakewood, make sure you bring the following things to help you fit right in.

A Want to Put Down Roots for Generations

If you’re moving to Colorado or Lakewood because it’s a great place for your family or to retire, the pinnacle of living the experience is in the new Solterra community. Solterra is a “hillside village between Green Mountain and Red Rocks” and offers stunning natural views that change with the seasons but a comfortable proximity to the Lakewood community.

An Appetite

Lakewood has a wide array of restaurants. In the mood for burgers orpizza? The T Street Roadhouse has you covered. You may also want to check out Teller’s Taproom & Kitchen on Youngfield Street. Get a taste of Cuban at Frijoles Colorado Cuban Cafe on Alameda Parkway. The Falafel House — specializing in Mediterranean food — just opened this summer and it’s already getting rave reviews online.

Clothes for Any Type of Weather

You get every season in Lakewood. That’s life in the Rockies. Get ready for about 5 feet of snow in the winter and some really cold nights in January. Counter that with some hot, arid days in the summertime. Bring a jacket for the springtime and Fall.

A Good Pair of Hiking Boots and a Mountain Bike

In Lakewood, you’re literally surrounded by hundreds of miles of hiking and biking trails. Hiking and biking are some of the main reasons people move to and move back to Colorado. Lakewood features some of the state’s better trails at Lookout Mountain Park and The Main Reservoir.

A Camera

While you’re out on a hike, a bike ride, or just a leisurely walk, the stunning views you’ll see of the Rockies or the open spaces that change with the seasons. Bring that camera, snap away, and share the views on social media that will make your friends and family jealous and wish they could join you in Lakewood.


You’re not that far from some of Colorado’s best ski resorts, so eventually it’s bound to happen — you’re invited for a ski weekend with some of the great new friends you’ve met in Lakewood and you’ve got no skis.

Lakewood shops like Christy Sports Ski & Snowboard and Green Mountain Sports have you covered.

Your 9 Iron

If your first choice for leisure time is tee to green and 19th holes, you’ll find plenty of places to keep your game sharp in Lakewood. Some great municipal courses include several courses at Fox Hollow Golf Course and Homestead Golf Course as well as the private Lakewood Country Club. There are myriad clubs and courses surrounding Lakewood, too.
