Why you'd want to live in Lakewood
The Colorado city of Lakewood is nestled against the foothills of the Rocky Mountains just west of the state capital of Denver. Located in Jefferson County, Lakewood is surrounded by several major thoroughfares, including Interstates I-25 and I-70, Colorado State Highways 26 and 470, and U.S. Routes 6 and 285. It is the perfect spot for anyone wanting quick access to both downtown and the Rockies.
