Located just 15 minutes from Downtown Denver, Arvada manages to balance the business and commerce of a major metropolitan area with eclectic, small-town charm.
We have lots to offer residents and visitors alike and Arvada was even named one of the Coolest Suburbs in America in 2019. Here’s a little look into Arvada’s shopping, dining and entertainment district: Olde Town.
Shop your day away
Historic Olde Town Arvada is the heart and soul of the city. As part of the National Register of Historic Districts, with dozens of shops and boutiques, Olde Town Arvada is the place to be.
For shoppers, a mix of boutique, vintage and artisan shops can fill an entire day with a quest to find the perfect clothes, accessories or home décor. Specialty pet products, gifts for baby, gourmet goodies, art and one of the local favorites, a shop dedicated only to socks – there is truly something for everyone!
Where should we eat?
With close to 30 restaurants, bars and coffee shops, two breweries and its own winery, Olde Town and its immediate surrounding often surprises first-time visitors with its variety. From sushi to vegetarian to traditional American fare (there is also a café dedicated to heaping bowls of cereal!), Olde Town has you covered. You’ll find award winning burgers and pizzas, but so much more. Olde Town even features one of the most famous bakeries in the metro Denver area offering something sweet for every dietary restriction – gluten free, low carb, even sugar free.
Assuming it’s possible to get your fill of shopping and dining, what’s to do in Olde Town? Plenty!
History buffs can stop by the McIlvoy House on Grandview and pick up a copy of the Olde Town Walking Tour, which includes 26 stops within five city blocks.
Itching for some arts and culture? Olde Town aims to please with music, movies and arts in a variety of media. From exhibits and fun classes to galleries that let you purchase affordable pieces from local and regional artists, you can look, learn and shop until your inner art-lover is content.
For those with pampering on their agenda, Olde Town welcomes you to stop by one of the many salons or to enjoy a skincare treatment, yoga, acupuncture or massage.
See you soon
