Review of Montrose, Colorado

May move to Montrose, Colorado
Star Rating - 9/12/2015
I currently live in Denver, Colorado and have lived here all my life with the exception of living in Houston, TX in the early 1970s.
My mother is from Montrose, Colorado - she passed away in 2013 at the age of 100. I miss her.
I have been contemplating moving to Montrose, Colorado. Have no family or close ties in Denver.
I made a trip to Montrose last weekend to scout out the town and look at some homes. The newer homes are gorgeous and so affordable compared to Denver.
Am having a difficult time trying to decide if I should move there.
Can someone shed some light on the living conditions in Montrose. I is a beautiful town, but am really afraid I'd feel isolated there as I'm not used to a small town without all the restaurants, shopping, etc.
