Lone Tree Colorado Ranked 7th Best City to Live In!

There was a recent study by Time, Inc's Money Magazine ranking the best cities to live in in the United States. Along many cities Lone Tree Colorado was ranked in the top ten, landing at number seven. They evaluated 2,400 different cities. 

This magazine has conducted this evaluation many times, changing their criteria every time. This time they were focusing on cities with a population between 10,000 to 100,000 and considering factors like cost of living and public school performance. Some other factors that were considered during this evaluation were projected job growth, commuting costs, county-level high school graduation rates and the distance or access to different amenities like restaurants, parks, sport complexes, etc. 

Keri Anne Renzulli, Money's reporter, explains where the idea behind looking at smaller towns came from. They wanted to bring attention to smaller towns outside larger, costlier cities. She explains, " Avoiding the biggest cities to focus on smaller towns and affordable suburbs was driven by our desire to scout out the best bargains and raise the profile of many wonderful places across the country, they may lack the big-name familiarity of larger locales but still have plenty to offer in terms of low cost of living, growing economies, and good schools."

With all of this being said, Lone Tree is growing and is a popular place to live here outside of the Denver area.

Exciting New Restaurant Coming to Lone Tree

If you are a fan of the popular restaurant downtown known as La Loma, then you will be even more excited to know that there is going to be another restaurant opening in Lone Tree that is owned by Mark and William Brinkerhoff, the same people as La Loma. This restaurant is named Sierra, and will be located by the Cabelas that was built in 2013. The atmosphere will be more of a mountain lodge, sitting atop a hill. 

 The Marketing Manager from Brinkerhoff Hospitality, Deanna Price says, "Sierra is quite a bit different from La Loma. It definitely has an elevated feel, we're still really going for the rustic approach, similar to La Loma, with brick and high-beam ceilings. Sierra just has some more modern touches to it." 

Although, the menu is still being developed, Head Chef Gerry Castro says "We're going to have some of La Loma's items on there, but then we're going to have some other things like fish plates and really nice pasta dishes" 

They will also be offering a great wine selection and will be putting together a cocktail menu. As this project get closer to completion we will keep you updated with the grand opening!
