Lone Tree Reviews
The aesthetic aspect of Lone Tree is very appealing, as it is very clean and pretty modern. The Douglas County school system is above average, but still has room for improvement: inclusive sexual education, and preparation to the 'real world' like learning how to write a check. Ever since the lightrail has expanded to parts of Lone Tree, there has been more homeless people coming into the neighborhoods; with that being sad, there has been unfair treatments against the homeless population like calling the cops to get them kicked out. It is suburban Colorado, so there are little to no night life as most residents here are familys. Lastly, as this is suburban Colorado, there is little to no diversity in this neighborhood as it primarily consists of white people.
Lone Tree is just far enough outside the city and the mountains, that you can access both in less than an hour. It's a family friendly town, but also a great spot for young professionals (like myself). Cost of living seems pricey, but it's lower than anywhere I've lived on the east coast (ie Gaithersburg, MD and Montclair, NJ). It's along a light rail line, so you have access to public transportation. That aspect has been great for commute to school in Aurora. I love it here.
Our residential areas are safe, quiet and a wonderful place to raise a family, with outstanding schools and sports opportunities. Along with our safe neighborhoods, we have beautiful views to enjoy. We can appreciate the history around us, as we indulge in the conveniences and advantages of suburban life.
