Though it is considered a suburb of Denver, it is a ‘Home Rule’ municipality. The city can determine its own government and services and pass ordinances without a charter from the state government. This makes it appealing for people thinking about moving to Wheat Ridge to lease or rent a home and for real estate investors. You can read more about Wheat Ridge’s government on their website.

The 2010 census puts the population of the city at 30,166. Small enough for quiet, comfortable living and close enough to Denver and all that a big city offers. But, it’s still active enough on it’s own to have plenty to offer. Some of the top recommended restaurants include Amici’s Pizzeria & Italian Restaurant, Grammy’s Italian Goodies, Pierogies Factory and Clancy’s Irish Pub.
