Hi:
I am from the midwest and sell real estate here in Colorado Springs. The biggest misconception about Colorado Springs is that we are a "city", when I think in fact we are more of a small town.

There is everything here from acreages to Mountain living to "suburban" living and all within up a short drive (25 minutes).

You'll absolutely love living here, taxes are low.

Let me know if I can send you anything to look at on-line.

Have a great day!
Janis

If your son lives in Lakewood, and you want a small town feel, try Morrison. Why be more than an hours drive away?

Not that I want to encourage you to not look at Colorado Springs, but 2b has a point with Morrison... You might also look at Evergreen, CO as well... Morrison is already troubled with sprawl and have heard that they have a lot of future development about to occur there when the market picks up... Small town feel won't last for long... Next time in Lakewood, you should check out Belmar. Great mixed-use center where everything is walkable. Little expensive to buy loft or townhome there but it is a great place!

Just wanted to say that Colorado Springs is in no way a 'small town'. A city with a metro population of over 600,000 isn't anywhere close to being a small town.

I agree Colorado Springs is not a small town but the metro is not over 600,000 (yet) its about 550,000.

According to every recent estimate, the metro population of Colorado Springs is approx. 610,000 . You really don't like CO Springs do you

It has nothing to do with me liking Colorado Springs or not the numbers are the numbers, I was just going by the last ones publised in the census page:

Population
2007 - 587, 272.

I just have not heard any 2008 numbers yet. Either way I agree that the Springs is a major city.

According to the most recent estimate, the metro population of Colorado Springs is approx. 610,000. The 2005 census was approx. 587,000 so the latest numbers sound accurate to me. I got the numbers from the official government census. Maybe there's different estimates or whatever.

Colorado Springs is a Home Rule Municipality that is the county seat and most populous city of El Paso County, Colorado, United States with a portion lying in Teller County.[4] At 376,427, it is the second most populous city in the State of Colorado and the 47th most populous city in the United States.[5] This count differs significantly from the Colorado Department of Local Affairs' 2007 estimate of 402,417.[6] In 2007 the Colorado Springs MSA had 609,096.[7]
Colorado Springs is located just east of the geographic center of the state and 61 miles (98 km) south of the Colorado State Capitol in Denver. At 6,035 feet (1839 meters) Colorado Springs sits over one mile above sea level, though some areas of the city are significantly higher. The city is situated near the base of one of the most famous American mountains, Pikes Peak, at the eastern edge of the southern Rocky Mountains. Colorado Springs was selected as the No. 1 Best Big City in "Best Places to Live" by Money magazine in 2006.[8]
