Hi! There is a possibility that I'll be offered a job in Black Hawk. I'm trying to narrow my search for a place to rent. I'm looking for a reasonable commute, and reasonable rental. I like the idea of being close to Denver, so I can enjoy the cultural happenings of the city, but I definitely want a relaxing place as well. I should mention I would be starting fresh from Connecticut travelling on my own.

I appreciate any an all suggestions...

Thanks!

I have read your other post:

"Hi. I've made it another step on the way to getting the job I've applied for...the process has taken me just over halfway there in over a month's time! This means moving from CT to the Denver area is more of a possibility for me. I'm still looking in the Arvada/Golden/Lakewood areas due to the shortest commute without living in the mountains per se. Job would be in Blackhawk. I can't seem to get much farther than narrowing it to those areas. Compared to where I live here, those cities are so much larger, and I don't know where to start. I want a nice apartment for myself, a single woman in her early thirties. Somewhere I can enjoy being outside, take in the views, be close to nature...yet also close enough for a ride into Denver becuse I'm interested in everything from museums, theater, sports, etc...and everything else it has to offer that I may not have heard about. A safe place for myself. Maybe the 650-800 range for rents? Any suggestions either in those cities or elsewhere is greatly appreciated. Also any infor on things to do in the area would be great as well.

Thanks so much!"




I am responding to this post because the other post has a longer threads with a title that would not attract enough attention and you have been overlooked for information. I think it is a good choice as it close enough to Black Hawk and still within easy reach of Denver and Boulder.

I assume that you are working in the Gaming Industry?? Are you looking to live near a bus, that your company will pay the fare to get to Blackhawk??
Do you know the bus company your employer has contracted for its' employees?? Most establishments have provisions for their employees.

All those areas have multiple buses to blackhawk and living near the pickup site could be ideal.

Are you going to drive??? That I would not advise on a daily basis because of the variable weather conditions, dangerous roads, and many drunks on the road to Black Hawk.

There are many apartments in safe areas that would meet your criteria.
They all have great open space parks and are the older suburbs that are home to most long term residents of Colorado.

I'd like to win the lottery. I think we both have an equal chance.

Default Ditto that

If you find something like that I'd love to know how you found it. I would suggest Craigslist.org and be very careful not to pay any money until you see the rental and check out the person renting it to you. Have you considered Canon City by Co Springs too?

Really? What part sounds unreasonable? You can't find a house for rent for 1200 in Georgetown, Idaho Springs ?

Will look into Canon City. Looks a little farther away, but might work. Willing to drive a little further for a better price if need be.

That means on average, everybody in the town has been a victim of theft at least once in these years. This is from the city-data.com profile page for Black Hawk, CO.

One or two career criminals in a small town of 100 will skew the crime figures all out of proportion.

Black Hawk is one of the three cities in Colorado that is home to casinos and legalized gambling. There's nothing else there.

Its number of residents has not much to do with the volume of its business and the number of people who visit and work there. Its business is gambling, and the influx of people daily who are not residents, is huge. The crime numbers per number of residents is statistically useless.

The police in Black Hawk are very visible, which is a good thing in a casino town.
