Love the sunshine, fresh air, and lack of bugs. Unfortunately, that's no longer enough for me.

Love the weather...4 seasons, but not extreme. Lack of bugs, great scenery with Pikes Peak always the dominant feature. You can't get lost here! lol

So incredibly much to do here...hiking, biking, running, Incline, mountain trails everywhere. Sports...Skysox baseball in the summer, Air Force Football & Hockey, CC Hockey, Pikes Peak Hill Climb, etc. Olympic Training Center is pretty cool as well, especially when you get a chance to talk to some athletes in training.

Also easy to spend a day up in the mountains snowmobiling or skiing.

People are great, plenty to do, low humidity and the sun always shines!

Its setting at the foot of the mountains. Aesthetically much prettier than Denver, IMO. Colorado College area, and Manitou.

I love that I-25 now has 3-lanes through Baptist Rd so that I can now get out of COS and back home that much quicker.
But if you're asking what I like about the region as a while… Mtn Access, Open Space, Great views, (relatively) affordable, good schools… and much more.

I beg to differ, I've been all over Colorado, and the world for that matter, but there's no place else I'd rather be than here. I just "feels right" if you know what I mean.
