Englewood...Mark - 2/8/2006
I took a job there myself last year, but now moved again for work back in CA. The proximity to the Mountains is hard to beat, along with all the city stuff to do. The cost of living, mostly housing, is by far better than CA. I have to admit I like the CA weather better, but do miss the Mts. I tend to like smaller cites as well, so that was one negative I saw.

Even living here in sunny CA I contemplate moving back. My parents now live in Colorado Springs and love it. Read More

The best benefit in my opinion is the proximity of hiking, biking, rafting, climbing, and seemingly limitless spots to pitch a tent. I don't have children but my neighbors do and I hear great things about the schools. There are many parks and open spaces too. I have lived in quite a few places, travel a lot and have to say that Colorado in general is a great place to live. It is absolutely perfect for me. I don't know where you are coming from but I would have to say that it is definitely worth checking out. Some things I don't like are mass transit and traffic. Mass transit is not terrible but it needs some work and they are working on improving it. Traffic can be bad because of "TREX" road work but the roads are getting a Read More
