Living in Colorado for more than 30 years, it is has been interesting to watch Thornton grow over the course of time. Several cities in the Denver metro area are completely surrounded by other cities which restricts their growth entirely.
However Thornton is fairly open on both the east and especially north side of the city, allowing it to grow incredibly fast over the past few years. Did you know the population of Thornton CO is approaching 127,000 people? AMAZING! I think this information is very telling about what a great place to live in Thornton has turned out to be!
