Arvada vacation rentals

19th-century Arvada has clearly come into its own

Downtown Arvada has a deep history dating back to the mid 19th century, but don’t mistake this Colorado town for being totally quaint. Booking an Arvada vacation rental is the first sign that this area is completely modern—and the perfect choice for those who wish for some quiet while being within proximity of Denver and Boulder. Bustling shopping avenues provide the energy, while wondrous natural attractions keep the area completely down to earth.

Arvada, a world of natural beauty and modern perfection

It’s no surprise that there’s some serious natural beauty in Arvada—it was once an agricultural community, after all. Here, you’re just as likely to find an epic walking and hiking trail as you are a lively, old-school bar. Fancy a dance? Pop into a buzzy club. If you’ve booked your Arvada vacation rental in the fall, the Arvada Harvest Festival is a must: it’s a fantastical event that celebrates the season and offers plenty of family fun. Nature preserves and parks are optimal spots for picnics, camping, or simply kicking back and gazing at the stars on a clear night.

On the rocks in Arvada--or in the water

Did you book your Arvada vacation rental dreaming of the great outdoors? The answer: Eldorado Canyon State Park, where you can get your hike on or rock climb on a sandstone cliff. If you’ve got the kids, though, a trip to the local water park may be a safer bet. The Colorado Railroad Museum is a fantastic option for those who prefer to keep their feet dry and on the ground—it showcases over 100 ancient trains! Following the transportation theme, the Cussler Museum is home to 75 rare cars. You can also learn all about the area at the Arvada Historical Society.

Summer sun, winter winds, and 4 seasons

With approximately 250 sunny days per year, Arvada doesn’t exactly disappoint. Rainfall is barely over around 15 inches, with snowfall of roughly 70 inches. In other words, this is a largely year-round city that doesn’t steer too far in any particular direction. July is the steamiest month, with highs of nearly 90 degrees. Winter means business: January temperatures may dip as low as 16 degrees, so bundle up if you’ve booked your Arvada vacation rental during the chilly months.

Rocky Mountain high, but plenty to see down under, too

In the Western Plains, Arvada is one of the most appealing places to visit if your main goal is to enjoy exceptional Rocky Mountain views. There are also plenty of clear fields in which to take a deep breath, connect with nature, and enjoy mind-blowing sunrises and sunsets. Largely residential, the area is still home to plenty of natural beauty—the Ralston Creek Trail winds through here, while the amazing Fault Caves, about 10 miles from Arvada, are considered a surprisingly popular party spot. In other words, head straight for the caves if you want to mix and mingle.
