Downtown/Shopping District
Westminster's Bowles House Museum, which shows the town as it was 100 years ago, is listed on the National Register of Historical Places, as are several other structures in town. City Hall offers a more modern view, and you can climb the 181 stairs to the top of the bell tower for a fabulous view of the entire metro area and the Rocky Mountains. You can also tour the sculpture garden and other gardens located around the building.

For one of Colorado's largest concentration of retail stores, visit the Westminster City Center area near U.S. 36 and Sheridan Boulevard.
