Moving to Thornton
Thornton is one of Colorado's largest cities and among the fastest-growing communities in the nation. Located about 10 miles northeast of Denver, Thornton is considered a large suburb of the state capital. It attracts a diverse population with its convenient amenities, plentiful parks and a variety of recreational facilities.
Thornton is a bit of an oddity when compared to many areas of the American West, because it was never the settling grounds of Native Americans. It was also never a railroad stop, industrial base or anything else of note until 1953. Before this time, it was entirely an agricultural-based town with a very small population of just a few thousand people.
But in 1953, that all changed. Local businessman Sam Hoffman purchased the land that's now Thornton and implemented a plan to populate the area, making it one of the first planned communities in Colorado. His plan was unique in that it was the first in the area to offer full municipal services like trash collection, parks and recreation, funded by just one tax levy. The following year, the Thornton Community Association was created to support the community's development, and 1,200 homes were completed by 1955. By 1956, Thornton had earned its official incorporation as a city. Since then, the population rapidly ballooned from about 11,000 in 1960 to what it is today.

The city is also within a short distance to many professional sports venues, music, nightlife and restaurants.
