I've lived in Palmer Lake my entire life and I love it. The view is amazing and so are the houses. There aren't many big, fancy, modern houses, though there are some, but instead there are average sized modern houses. The view is of the Rocky Mountains and there are great schools in the area.
Small town, close to the city. Great hiking and views. Also full of different places to stop in and grab some grub. On the weekends packed full of out of towners and during the week full of quiet small town people. I love this place.
