We are moving to Fountain, CO in a month, and would appreciate any information you might feel is important to know. We are going to rent when we get there and find jobs. Crazy I know, but we lost a child this year which tends to make you a little crazy. Seriously though, we are moving from Indiana, and looking to make a fresh start so we can see the West!

What neighborhood in Fountain? Cross Creek, Heritage, Countryside, Cumberland Greens, one of the older neighborhoods?
Fountain has a lot of active families/individuals who are constantly out walking, running, and biking. You will be shopping at the Walmart off of 85/87 in addition to Safeway at Mesa Ridge Parkway. Lowes is also next to Safeway. There aren't a lot of resturants in Ftn though, mostly all fast food. You will enjoy Fountain Creek Regional Park and learn the trails down on Ftn Creek trail just past the Ftn Creek Regional Park. The very small downtown by the courthouse has a small farmers market and often has small town get togethers where venders set up along with live music. Metcalf Park is another favorite and also has a horse arena. Fountain tends to get less snow than COS and can be about 5 degrees warmer than COS. It will only take about 20 mins or so to run up into COS via I-25, Powers, or through Security to Academy Blvd. Appletree Golf Course is right down the street too. Fountain does have parades on Hwy 85/87 and has its on little newspaper. Fountain also has its own government so you can rely on Fountain PD, Fountain Fire, and its own utility company. Its a small town atmosphere with mostly middle class families.

Default Pretty Areas in Fountain Valley

I think it's a great idea, to move here, get somewhat settled then start looking for a home. There are lots of pretty areas in Widefield, Security, Fountain. I agree with pretty much all afore mentioned. There are farmers markets, home prices tend to be less 'down there' than in other parts of town.

If you have any questions ask away!
