Consistently ranked as one of the top places in the country to live, and with good reason, Colorado Springs is the second-largest city in the state of Colorado that offers a plethora of job opportunities, a focus on great schools, and enough outdoor activities to keep any adventurer satisfied. Located just over 60 miles south of Denver, Colorado Springs is a great option for buyers who want a place in Denver’s southern suburbs as the average home prices run around 25% less than the Denver Metro area and the lifestyle is second-to-none.
The Colorado Springs community was settled in the 1860s to support the Pikes Peak Gold Rush and Union General William Palmer incorporated the area into a town in 1871. Sitting at an elevation of 6,035 feet, the city is located directly against the Rocky Mountains quickly ascending to the top of Pikes Peak at 14,115 feet. Open spaces, parks, a variety of trails, rock formations, and unique geological features attract residents and tourists to a vibrant, outdoor-focused lifestyle.
Pikes Peak, Garden of the Gods Park, The Manitou Incline, and Cave of the Winds Mountain Park are principal outdoor attractions, but dozens of everyday public spaces are also available for exploration. Beyond the beautiful views surrounding the city, it is also home to a variety of cultural, educational, and historical attractions including the United States Olympic and Paralympic Museum, the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College, the ENT Center for the Arts, and the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum.
Residences range from Victorian-era homes and bungalows downtown and in Old Colorado City to suburban planned communities to gated resort neighborhoods on the city’s north, west, and south sides. The area has secluded but accessible mountain homes and expansive acreage well within 45 minutes of downtown.
Home to five military bases including the United States Air Force Academy and NORTHCOM, Colorado Springs also has a wealth of employment options, ranging from defense and aerospace to tourism and hospitality to medical technology.
Colorado Springs residents live the epitome of the Colorado lifestyle. This community creates opportunities to indulge in every facet of this great state. It’s no wonder so many people want to call this community home.
