Colorado seems to call to me. I've been to Boulder and love it. My vision is to have mountain land (50 acres) with a home I call my own. It seems a little too pricey to live around the Boulder area. Any suggestions on mountain land around 40 minutes from Boulder/Denver area that isn't so expensive. A small community is really nice, but I'd like to have access to a larger city if need be.

I'm from Dallas, Texas where it's burning up. Global warming..ya know. I'd like to move on to the land I love.

Any suggestions on where the best place to look, build and develop good friendships?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Default Woodland Park

Woodland Park in Teller County is nice. It's a small mountain town and only about 15 minutes from Colorado Springs with all the amenities.

As for Boulder, if your from Dallas you probably would have a hard time fitting in in Boulder. It tends to be a bit liberal for the average Texas boy.

Thanks for your reply. I'm actually not a conservative guy, but more on the "conscious' side. That's why Boulder is attractive to me. I thought that the further I move outside of Boulder (but not more than 40 miles), the land prices would be less expensive. Is Colorado a pretty conservative state, with a Texas like "Good Old boy" attitude?

Denver is about 30 Miles from Boulder.

Colorado is a cross between Texas & California. Natives are tolerant of replants. Purple state Republican govenor (up for grabs this year) voted for Bush, and we have two brothers, both dems in Congress (Salazar).

Thank you 2bindenver. I appreciate your comments. Land in the Texas Hill Country goes for around $5,000 - $8,000 per acre. With that one can get views of the hills and lots of Oak trees. The weather is soo hot - +100 in July/August and getting hotter (last Summer was the hottest on record). Too hot for me.

Colorado has a cooler climate and Mountains to boot - which I love. I really like the Boulder community since I'm more on the liberal side. The people there seem so friendly and open.

My concern is that land is unavailable for that price range ($5k - $8K) per acre 30-40 miles from Boulder. I don't know. We looked at land in Sunshine Canyon and loved it, but it was pretty expensive. We're looking for something like that area, but not as high priced.

Not only moving and finding land that fits the bill, but finding additional sources of income is imperative. I have built my Psychotherapy practice over the past 15 years, and prefer to not doing that again in a new area. Doing something else that brings in passive income is my objective.

Anyway 2bindenver, that's my story. Any feedback you have to offer is welcome.

Thank you again.

I agree w/ Cluckk. I would look into Florrisent/Woodland Park area. It is beautiful up there and not a bad commute from Colorado Springs. BASHEP
