Centennial, CO is one of America’s 50 Best Places to Live coming in at No. 26, according to a recent report published by USA Today.
To compile the list, 24/7 Wall Street reviewed the data of 550 areas with a population of 65,000 or more as measured by the U.S. Census Bureau. According to USA Today’s report, the rankings were determined by a number of variables such as crime rates, educational attainment and housing affordability.

“Located a short drive south of Denver, Centennial is a family-friendly suburb of the Mile High City. The area boasts one of the lowest property crime rates of cities reviewed and very strong schools. Most notably, students in the area test very highly in science and math relative to the state and the nation.
“The city offers many award-winning parks and outdoor spaces that are well connected by bike routes and walkways. The Centennial Center is a popular 11-acre park featuring playgrounds and open spaces. Residents also have relatively easy access to all of the amenities Denver has to offer, including a number of major league sports teams.”
