Castle Rock is a great town with many neat amenities including hiking, an historic downtown, restaurants and public parks including a world class public skatepark. Castle Rock is a great place to raise a family, and with all of the neat businesses, shops and restaurants in the historic downtown Castle Rock you won't ever be bored! Castle Rock hosts many art events downtown along with other fun "tent events" that the townspeople love to participate in almost every weekend! You won't be bored or stressed in this beautiful town!

The town of Castle Rock Colorado is home to many natives of Colorado, this is a secret hide away town off the I-25 that heading north goes to the Colorful Colorado Capital Colorado. The south direction to the Garden of Gods. For us townies there is an outlet mall people from all parts of the world come to shop for, the safest pleasant quiet away from the city secret but not to far to be loosing you city sleek is the perfect home for anyone family or young youth in the market for a new home this is were I live and were my children will live! I wouldn't have it anyother way in this hideaway highway town.
I love Castle Rock! We've lived here for nine years now. It is the perfect size and location. Located in between Colorado Springs and Denver, the commute either way (without traffic) is max 45 mins. The view is absolutely breathtaking. Castle Rock continues to grow and thrive with constant adding of businesses and homes. The town is pretty safe. It's a great area for young families. The only downside is the limited diversity.
