Craig is a typical small, rural community. Many people are very hard working and nice. There is however only one theatre, which only has 2 showings on the weekends, and a bowling alley. It lacks entertainment and shopping!

Craig, Colorado is a unique town. I have learned that the town is based around coal and oil. The people in Craig are very nice and welcoming. The Yampa River runs through the town and the parks are very well kept- My family really enjoys them. The things I would like to see change in Craig is the lack of different businesses. There is not much shopping in Craig besides Wal-Mart and very few local shops. There could also be brought forth more activities for the community. I have three young children and there isn't much for them to do. There are parks and a swimming complex but for rainy or snowy days (much of all winter), my kids can only enjoy the playground at the local McDonald's.
I have lived in Craig for 15 years and even though it is a small town, it is still home. While it may not have many places to hang out or stores to shop at, it makes up for it in outdoor experiences. Only a stones throw away from forested mountains, lakes, and beautiful camping spots, Craig is an outdoorsman’s dream.
