I lived in Longmont for years and loved it. I purchased a bungalow a couple of blocks off of Main Street, renovated it and sold it at a excellent profit. There are great dining choices, parks and shopping in the area and the town is friendly with a wonderful sense of community.

Seeing Longmont's downtown area become an arts center has been one of my longtime dreams that has come true just in the last few years.....and having our RE/MAX Alliance office at 512 4th ave in the heart of down town has been a thrill.....that and the improvements to MacIntosh Lake,Golden Ponds and the St Vrain Greenway and Roosevelt Park are great enhancements that I love too!

I have lived in Longmont for 30 years....Longmont has worked hard to make the downtown area vibrant...we have great events and festivals....year round. A growing art community Ample walking and bike trails that keep on expanding, wonderful parks and the city has a great vision for future redevelopment. If you want to live in Boulder County....the prices of homes are MUCH more resonable than any other city. I am proud to be part of Longmont and the community!

Although the national (and global) economy took a hit several years ago, Longmont has continued to move forward, build, grow, and improve services over the last decade. Old Town is more vibrant, and folks no longer need to go to Boulder/Denver for quality restaurants and entertainment. Longmont just keeps getting better and better, and was recently awarded a top place to live in the USA...

When ever I'm asked about living in Longmont vs the other small towns and cities around Longmont, I always let folks know that out of most of the other choices, Longmont is one of the few cities you could live in and not have to go anywhere else to find good shopping, arts, open spaces, parks, golf, movies, rodeos, schools and all kinds of other great amenties. Even if it was 200 miles to the next larger City, you could find what you want and need in Longmont. Plus it is centrally located within 20 - 30 minutes to Boulder, 45 - 60 minutes to Ft. Collins and Denver and 30 minutes to Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park.
