The best of all worlds. Close to the city. Cool houses that people are fixing up constantly. Decent-sized yards (for a major city, certainly). One of the highest rated elementary/middle schools in Colorado. A lot of families and young kids everywhere, and a very tightknit community (mainly due to the school being the center of gravity for the neighborhood)

Easy access to supermarkets, movie theaters and local businesses. Near Southmoor RTD and many bus routes. Also easy to access highway.
I moved from Las Vegas, NV just about two years ago. I truly have fallen in love with Colorado and all of its enchanting beauties. There is a ton to do, not only the downtown and bar scene, but ESPECIALLY the great outdoors. I couldn't think of a better place to live. The reason I gave the feedback that I did, is because all you hear about our police force recently in the news. I love that we are implementing the police body cams on top of more street cameras. I think it is important that we all feel safe.
