Northglenn, Colo., is composed of small, close-knit neighborhoods, parks and trails, small businesses and other features that make it perfect for families looking for homes for rent in areas with a slower pace. That said, the state capital of Denver is just 15 minutes south of the city, so residents are just a quick drive away from big-city culture, shopping and attractions.
