I am a 33 year old single mother of 2 boys, one is 9 years old the other is 4 months old. I have been researching Colorado and have found a lot of positive materials showing great school systems, positive career possibilities, as well as a ton of activities for families. We are of mixed race and do not know anyone in Colorado, so we would literally be stepping out on our own to find a place to settle. I grew up in Indiana and would really like my kids to experience that hometown feeling and have a sense of "belonging" if that makes sense.
We are planing on visiting the Denver and Colorado Springs area early 2013. Does anyone have any suggestions on places that would be more prosperous? I work in the legal field and have plenty of office/clerical experience as well. I would like an area that has great schools, reasonable cost of living, and just a family feel.....if that even still exists.

Thank you for any and all replies

In COLO SPGS, look at the Briargate area on the north side, in school district 20. Home rentals and sales are both found at ppar.com

There are other areas of COLO SPGS that will work just as well and have equally fine schools.

Default Thank you

Thank you very much. I had not done much research on Colorado Springs but it popped up on a search this morning and looks like a great place.

Thank you again.
