"A good place to be located for those who work downtown"

Henderson, Colorado is a rapidly changing area. This used to be a big area for farming and ranching, and while there are still some small farms and older homes here, there are new developments popping up everywhere. Most of these developments have two-story, single family homes and are pretty close together. There is a lot of water in the area, with lakes and streams, and just west of Highway 85 off of 120th is a great bicycle path. There are also places to go for nice nature walks and spend some quality time outdoors.

Although there isn't a lot of shopping in the area, this town is located right next to Brighton and Northglenn, so shopping and dining are never far away. There are plenty of gas stations and a few strip malls for other needs. It would be a convenient location for someone to live in if they worked in Denver or any of the other surrounding areas. Although traffics seems to not be bad for the most part, it can get a little congested on both Highway 85 and 120th as you head west, but this happens mostly at peak driving hours.

The schools in Henderson rate anywhere from average to below average, which is unfortunate. Both the middle and high school have pretty new buildings which are very nice on the inside. Overall, this is primarily a family based area with many housing options.
