Broomfield Is Named One of the ‘Best Places to Live’ and Here’s Why

On-site storage, we’ve got you covered

If you’re a local like us, you probably already know that Broomfield, Colorado is great. But in 2020, officially named the city one of the “best places to live” in the United States.

Evans, Georgia took the top spot on the list, and our neighbors in Parker, Colorado took second. Nonetheless, Broomfield earned the 18th spot. And while we may have moved it higher up the list, it’s still a respectable place amongst some of the country’s greatest cities.

“Less than 20 miles from Denver and Boulder and within eyesight of the soaring Rockies, this 33-square-mile suburb has something for both big-city and outdoor enthusiasts alike,” the site wrote.
