Established in 1908, we are a friendly community with small town charm. While we are ready to transform and embrace growth, we intend to maintain our core values. We are a place where neighbors are friends, and friends are family. We are a close-knit, growing and vibrant community.
Throughout our 109-year history, a lot has changed, and a 21st century Dacono finds itself with great anticipation, in the heart of a thriving Colorado economy and in the midst of one of Colorado's fastest growing counties. Our "Dacono Forward Comprehensive Plan" will guide our community into the future with great thought, passion and intention.
We are right around the corner.
Centrally located and adjacent to I-25 we are 10 miles north of Denver, 44 miles south of Fort Collins, 28 miles northwest of Denver International Airport (DIA) and 21 miles northeast of Boulder. A quick trip all the way around for work, travel, shopping, entertainment, arts, culture, recreation and school.
For shopping and dining you will find The Orchard Town Center offering everything from bistros to burgers, Larkridge Shopping Center featuring an outdoor pedestrian mall, the Grove, with Cabela's as its anchor and Furniture Row all about 15 minutes away.
By the numbers.
Located in southwest Weld County, one of the fastest growing counties in the State of Colorado, we encompass nearly 9 square miles and foresee future growth that will expand our boundaries to 22 square miles. With climate that is cool and dry and an average of 242 days of sunshine each year, we boast pleasant daytime conditions even in the winter. The median home value is $266,000 compared to more than $497,000 in Boulder County making Dacono an excellent value. And, housing options range from starter to high-end and everything in between.
