I've been living in Superior for 3 1/2 years and have loved it! Everything you need, whether it be the grocery store, starbucks, walmart, high quality restaurants, movie theaters, malls, is within walking distance. Mountain biking trails are abundant with the closest one being 10 minutes away. It is certainly not the most expensive place to live in Colorado, which is Vail, but you do have to make more than $50,000 to live comfortably here. If you have the money, it's a great place to rent or buy.

I grew up in Superior. It is a safe neighborhood and active community. Having gone to school in Superior, a lot of the residents are connected through the schools, so everyone knows some one somehow. There are a lot of community events such as Arbor day, the 4th of July parade, 5ks, etc. The police, Fire department, Town Services and everyone work to keep Superior clean and it doesn't go unappreciated. The sub division neighborhood are also amazing for anytime of home budget. Having moved around just in Superior, the affordability options are great
Superior is quaint small-town America that everyone dreams of loving in! I have lived here for 5 years and the community is family-friendly and extremely welcoming. The public schools are amazing and the commute into Denver and Boulder is a breeze.
