at least -- even using the e-470 northwest parkway toll road.

Douglas County has plenty of wide open spaces. It used to be the fastest growing county in the nation, then that went to Henderson Nevada. 20-30 minutes to Aurora.

You are right that Douglas Cty is the fastest growing area in the state but the transportation network isn't really that bad. They have done a fairly good job of trying not to be like SoCal. C-470 is a mess but they are working toward upgrading it. There is plenty of open space still down there. There's Chatfield Reservoir, plenty of parks along the Platte and you are always close to the mountains. I agree with 2bindenver Littleton or Douglas Cty to N Aurora 20-30 min, Ft Collins to N Aurora via Northwest Pkwy about an hour. Maybe a little longer from Littleton depending on where you are and where you are going.

You might want to look at Louisville, it is in the Boulder Valley School district. It does have a nice little "downtown". It is about 10 miles southeast of Boulder and 20 miles northwest of Denver on Hwy 36. We just moved here and we think it's great. We have a child in Monarch k-8 and another in special ed in Eisenhower elementary.

I have been to Louisville 3 or 4 times. I stayed with friends for a week at a time back in the early 90's. I also went through it again this past summer. I do like Louisville a lot, but it seems difficult to find a 4-BR home for under $400K. My friend, who now lives in a humongous home in Superior, claims that I would have a lot more options if I had $500K to work with. Not very helpful. I figured I'd have even more options with a million! Ha! She's obviously moved on up, and is proud of it.
