Semi-decent article in the Gazette today on COS neighborhoods. Those thinking of moving here can get locations, price ranges, school districts, photos of homes, and a sentence or two on the type of neighborhood. Most of the information is already on the internet but this sort of put it together.

Went to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo today. Excellent place for kids. Plus you get a workout pushing double strollers up and down hills at 6000 feet altitude. There are a couple of energy-releasing playgrounds and they let you bring in your own food. The views of COS from up on the mountain are killer. The pony rides are a bit of a rip but the carousel and the train are worth it.

Moderator adds: http://www2.gazette.com/neighborhoods/ great data tables, covers most neighborhoods

Default pony rides

the pony rides are a bit of a "rip" because unlike the carousel or the tot train, we actually have to feed the ponies, and you know pay for vet bills and farrier equipment, along with the salaries of who ever is working that day, so you aren't paying for the ride, you are paying to keep those ponies alive

LOL - I'll ride a pony if it saves its life. I might stress it's back a bit though, unless it's a large pony.
