The Unforgettable Sunset - 4/26/2018
I have always been mobile for my career, until I moved to Castle Rock. I've lived in in multiple cities in the Midwest including Chicago and have visited nearly every metro area in the US for work. Many of those areas were forgettable, but I still remember my first visit to Castle Rock in 2010 when I took a picture of the stunning orange/red mountain sunset from the Lowe's parking lot. That framed picture hung in my home in Oklahoma and it has now hung in my Castle Rock home for over 5 years. The only difference is now I get to enjoy this alluring landscape daily:)

I still travel extensively and have yet to visit a place that would entice me to move, including Southern California, Pacific Northwest, Etc. These places are great to vacation, which is easy to do from DIA, but livability is much lower IMHO.

The schools options here are stellar. My young daughter loves her daily life here including her school and the parks.

Looks can be very decieving, move here with extrem - 9/11/2015
Castle Rock was a cute semi nice White small town with nothing to do when I moved here in 1998 at 17. Now it is basically a suburb with tons of illegal immigrants and snobs galore, it's overpriced and traffic is hell. The town only cares about making money, and it will be built up and connected to Parker in less than 5 years. The cops go out of their way to give out tickets and harass you (Castle Rock will, Douglas County not AS bad) no warnings like normal towns. If you have kids they will complain there is nothing to do, and by 14 they will be having sex and doing drugs and drinking because there IS basically nothing to do here. Save some money and just move to a nice part of connected suburban Denver, you'll have the same views. Read More

Why is the air quality so bad in C.R.? - 4/19/2014
Castlerock sounds like a great place to live but why is the air quality so bad? That is so disappointing to see because we were looking at relocating to the area but with having Asthma, I'm not sure if that would be wise or Read More

Cost of living Question: - 11/13/2012
My husband and I are thinking of moving to Castle Rock, CO, from Lincoln, Nebraska. We can relocate with our current jobs, between the both of us we earn about 90K annually. Is this a good enough wage to live in Colorado? Of course in time, we will get a cost of living increase but who knows really what percentage that will be. Any advice would be helpful. Thank Read More

Denver is Awesome! - 8/17/2012
My uncle that lives in Castle Rock wanted me to visit him for years. I put it off thinking "oh well, it's only Denver" (who cares). August 5th 2012 I finally went to visit him. The airport was amazing. But the drive home from the Airport was ok. But that's when my story starts. We arrived at his home and I was amazed at the view of the mountains, amazed with the weather. In the middle of summer there is no humidity and the best part - no bugs like we have in Chicago. Long story short, we called a realtor and I am now buying a vacation home in that area. Denver is simply amazing. The beauty, the people, the food. Boulder and its "Pearl street" is awesome, Estes Park, Need I say Read More

Sunny! - 5/2/2011
Although the winters seem to drag on, the sunshine is always around the corner. One week there will be a blizzard, and the next it will be in the 60's :) It's May. Last week it was in the 60's, today it snowed, and next week it will be in the 70's. It has some of the most sunny days in the continental United States. Read More

Castle Rock, CO is situated in Douglas County. Douglas county is ranked in the top five per capita incomes in the United States. The overall cost of living here is high, however, the cost of living is relative to the higher average per capita household income.

living in Castle Rock, CO - 9/9/2009
We've lived in Castle Rock for 4 years. We moved here from Redondo Beach, CA. Be prepared for some adjustment when making that big of an altitude change, but it's not that bad. The dryness is also something to be reckoned with, especially if you're used to a lot of moisture. But now it's actually difficult to go back to the ocean -- just feel sticky all the time. Castle Rock is a beautiful place to live but it's growing very fast. Population has doubled since 2000 (according to Sperling data). The roads are not bad, as mentioned by a 2007 review on Sperling, unless you're not a good driver. Winter can be tricky. The I25 has been undergoing improvements here in Castle Rock, with an effort to keep up with the population growth, etc. The cost of living is getting high, however. If you're thinking of moving here, or anywhere between Denver and Colorado Springs, be sure you understand what an HOA is, because most of the housing is HOA. This can truly be a difficult adjustment. But the Read More
