Review of Thornton, Colorado


Population is exploding
Star Rating - 4/3/2015
The quality of life here in not good. The traffic is bad all the time. To try to get to the mountains takes forever! Also most lakes along the front range you can't even swim in. They use the excuse that it's the cities' drinking water, however they allow boats with motors in a lot of the lakes. It's also very windy especially in the Spring. I have lived in Colorado Springs, Breckenridge, Cripple Creek, and Grand Junction. If you weigh, commute time, quality of life, weather, and easy access to the outdoors. I would choose Grand Junction.

This sounds more general to the Denver/front range area than specific to Thornton. I don't understand why anyone would want to swim in dirty lakes with motor oil. Just my opinion.
