Frederick is less a city and more a town. We have two grocery store options, although neither is actually in the town limits; both are in nearby Firestone. The library and fire department are both collaborations between the towns of Dacono, Firestone, and Frederick. Despite its small size, the town of Frederick is a lovely place. The natural beauty of Colorado mixes with the convenience of “city living.” There is a lake with a gorgeous view of the mountains, and yet we are only 20 minutes from several larger cities such as Fort Collins, Boulder, Longmont, and Thornton.

Frederick, CO is about 30 minutes north of Denver and 30 minutes east of Boulder. With a clear view of the mountains, Frederick was recently rated among the top 20 small towns in the United States. Each year, it holds a small parade of the 4th of July to bring the community together.
