Overview of Thornton

Denver has become a serious hotspot over the past few years, and Thornton apartments make the perfect home for newcomers to the area. As one of the fastest-growing cities in Colorado, Thornton has experienced a 44.2 percent population growth from 2000 to 2010, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. With more than 120,000 residents living in Thornton Colorado apartments and homes, this beautiful city shows no signs of slowing down. If you are looking for ways to join the vibrant, outdoorsy Colorado community, Thornton is the place to be.

Thornton Apartments & Cost of Living

As Thornton continues to grow, the city's affordable living conditions have yet to waiver. According to City-Data, the cost of living here is only slightly higher than the national average. As such, rentals and apartments in Thornton Colorado are popular because of the wide variety available. While there are several Thornton apartments that rent in the $800 range, the median rent for one bedroom apartments in Thornton hovers around the $1000 mark. Another perk of apartments in this city is that doubling your space doesn’t exactly mean doubling your rent. Three-bedroom units typically max out around $1800, making Thornton Colorado a great place to rent if you have a family.

Thornton Work, Study, and Play

There are plenty of traditional Colorado attractions here, including the Rocky Mountains, Sand Creek Regional Greenway and the Dirty Bismarck Loop, which all give residents a space to live the outdoor-oriented Colorado lifestyle. Thorntonfest is another local favorite, and captures the spirit of the thriving community with a 5K, battle of the bands and events promoting local ventures and green living initiatives each May.

After FasTracks, a light rail expansion new to the Denver area, was finished, an influx in job opportunities attracted new opportunities to Thornton. Echostar, North Suburban Medical Center and T-Mobile are among the largest employers in the area and help promote a diverse job market for Thornton Colorado residents. Many people here also commute to work in Denver, as the city is located just 10 miles northeast of downtown Thornton.

There are several universities in the Thornton area, but the University of Colorado, Denver, is the largest available. With undergraduate and doctoral programs ranging from molecular genetics to music, the university has many fields of study that attract prospective students. The Metropolitan State College of Denver is another favorite here, and offers daytime, evening and weekend classes that may be more conducive to accommodating a busy schedule.
