  1. The Community: Colorado Springs is perfect for those who are searching for those bigger city amenities with that small town feel. With amazing options for outdoor and indoor fun, a wonderful selection of local eateries, shopping, affordable housing, and beautiful scenery, Colorado Springs will be perfect for you and your family to live and thrive in.
  2. Outdoor recreation is within our backyards. With the mountains to the west, one can easily escape the busyness of the city and spend the weekend hiking and/or camping in our beautiful mountainside parks. If you’d rather stay within the city, there parks galore spread about throughout the whole area. Many are pet-friendly and give the whole family options of playing, picnicking, water sports and more! You definitely won’t fall short when looking for ways to spend outdoors here in Colorado Springs. 
  1. All Four Seasons exist in our beautiful state of Colorado. Since Colorado Springs sits at a higher elevation, you’ll find a dry heat that warms our summer months. The heat only lasts a month or two, though, before the beautiful colors of fall dot our landscapes and mountainside. Winter brings in that snow, and with the snow comes all those fun outdoor activities like skiing, sledding, and snowboarding. Don’t worry though, we aren’t covered in the snow the whole winter, it comes and goes throughout the whole season in our beautiful little town. 
  1. Affordable Housing: Colorado Springs housing market is more affordable than many of the areas in our state. In fact, many people choose to live in Colorado Springs and commute up to Denver as its much cheaper to live in Colorado Springs than Denver! The market is booming, so be sure to check out our neighborhood pages to get a feel of what location in our city feels the best to you and your family!
  1. Education: Colorado Springs has many different school districts you can choose from that rank highly within the region.

  1. The Landmarks: We have nature on our side, giving us beautiful views of Pikes Peak and the Garden of the Gods. Our neighboring town of Manitou has the Manitou Incline for the hiking enthusiasts.
