Fountain is a beautiful city right outside of Fort Carson military base. Fountain is an updated area with a few shopping areas and lots of food choices. There is not too much of a night life but is a very family friendly town! The ease of getting to and from Fort Carson makes Fountain an even better place to live and there are so many different choices from houses, apartments to townhouses to choose from to live in. There is open view of the mountains and the snow fall is amazing to see. I highly recommend looking into the Fountain city area if deciding to move to Colorado one day!

I've lived in Fountain all my life, and I love the close-knit community feeling. With the community events, sports events from the high school, and the overall good education system, I am very in love with Fountain. It's diverse and neighbors are friendly, if you're trying to find a good place to raise your kids, come here!
Junky, Trashy, Transient, Rental Town, with no infrastructure or proactive government. Take exit 128 off I-25 and Drive around to see for yourself. Especially Old Pueblo Road and Link. The area is called Countryside....which was a planned community, but you can't tell today, and it has a truck route going right through it. It's all the same zip code, so one area affects the next. Nothing stays nice for long in Fountain. Maybe Mesa Ridge might, but clearly not Countryside or the South end.
