Colorado Springs, CO


Gotten Worse - 3/23/2018
I've had the privilege of living in Colorado Springs on three different occasions. The first being in 2009. At first sight, my wife and I loved the town, especially the views and weather. A year later, we moved to DC and really missed the Springs. Fast forward three years and we're back in Colorado for round two. Unfortunately, this is when we noticed a noticeable decline in the town. Everything from the legalization of marijuana, increased traffic, ignorant drivers/tailgaters, increased prices for everything, and CRIME. The Springs took a turn for the worse, so we decided to pack up and move back to DC. Oddly enough, DC got worse as well. Now we're back in Colorado, round 3, and somehow gotten even worse. Everywhere we go, it wreaks of marijuana, homes are expensive, and the roads are terrible. This place reminds me of the alternate universe of Hill Valley from Back to the Future 2 where Biff is a millionaire and the town is run amuck. The upside to Colorado Springs is plenty of outdoor activities and great weather.
