Stacey ~ I love living here.  I can't wait for the IKEA to open!  It's going to be one huge store!  Maybe I'll get lost in the store while I'm shopping! HA!

Tim ~ Centennial is wonderful.  And my neighbors are terrific.  I couldn't have hand picked any better!

Jessica ~ I looked for a map, but I couldn't find one.  If I do, I will add it.

All ~ I am looking forward to IKEA coming here.  And, per the suggestions of Sam and Craig, I am going to try the Sweedish meat-a-balls! (sorry Nick)

Debra ~ Centennial is located ( on the east side) south of Aurora and north of Parker.  And on the west side, east of Littleton and Englewood and south of Greenwood Village.
