Former Resident: Colorado Springs is nestled underneath Pikes Peak, and has all the amenities of a bigger city coupled with a small town, friendly atmosphere. The downtown area is clean and well-groomed, and there are a variety of both indoor and outdoor activities in close proximity to each other, including mountain biking, hiking trails, locally owned vintage shops, mid-range to high-end dining, etc. There are many military bases in Colorado Springs, and therefore many Colorado residents are military, or come from military families, and also spend much of their time outdoors. There is a diverse mix of age, race, and background. One of the down sides is that it is very expensive to live in Colorado Springs. Although there are job opportunities, housing is extremely limited, and a one bedroom apartment in downtown Colorado Springs could cost upwards of $1,200/month. Regardless of any negatives, though, the majority of people who move to Colorado Springs love it!
