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 really like our town! My one small issue is that there aren't many fun places to go to eat, so you generally have to go to Boulder if you want to see any spiffy restaurants. Besides for that, it's great.
It's a great place to live! I love how everything is close to each other making it really easy to plan outings for a family. Also there are many open spaces and parks in the area that are well maintained which is great for the spring, summer, and fall activities. I would like to see less construction in the area. The items for construction have just been left there and it seems that construction has stopped for some reason and even though we need the improved roads its causing far to much trouble with traffic.
