Living in Wheat Ridge CO

Wheat Ridge embodies the deep roots of a city with a rich history and a strong sense of community. Its central location provides shorts commutes to the majestic Rocky Mountains and all the amenities of the large metropolitan City of Denver, Colorado. With easy access to I-70, you can be skiing, hiking or participating in a wide range of internationally-acclaimed mountain sports in less than an hour. The golden hills of wheat noted by travelers passing along the Overland Trail was how Wheat Ridge was named. As unsuccessful miners returned to the area and began farming the rich, fertile soil, the community began its growth.

Wheat fields were converted to fruit orchards and vegetable fields, attracting buyers from all across the Denver area. Eventually, the fruit and vegetable farming gave way to greenhouses and the largest production of carnations in the world, earning Wheat Ridge the designation of “Carnation City.” Wheat Ridge is a Denver West suburb. The city has a population of approximately 31,500. Wheat Ridge is a relatively young incorporated city with a history based on agriculture. It grew from a popular rest stop for travelers during the Gold Rush of 1859 to a thriving agricultural and suburban community. As real estate and homes for sale rose to provide housing for the Denver workforce, major transportation corridors extending from Denver are keeping pace.
