centennial, Colorado

Get To Know The Area

One of Colorado’s newest cities, Centennial was incorporated in February 2001. It boasts over 100,000 residents, making it Colorado’s 10th largest city. Centennial is home to the Streets at SouthGlenn, which offers a variety of shops, boutiques, and restaurants. And suds lovers will love this — this near-Denver locale has its very own quiver of craft breweries including Resolute Brewing Company and Halfpenny Brewing Company.

Situated in Arapahoe County, Centennial got its name from Colorado’s nickname “Centennial State.” The state was admitted to the union in 1876, the 100th year anniversary of the United States Declaration of Independence, hence the name centennial.
