Sandycat - I am neither Christian nor Conservative but I enjoy it here. I have several pagan friends (I'm not that either), Christian friends, agnostics, military, construction, Olympic support, etc...as C Springs grows it's becoming more diverse. But yeah, it's still conservative and such.

I would rather live in a smaller town though and that's what I plan on doing.

Oh and I have lived in C Springs, Grand Junction Denver and back to C Springs. My favorite by far has been Grand Junction because it's very laid back, the geology is incredible and hardly any winds. Well, there are other things too.

:-)

Default Bedroom community Windsor, CO

Hello, My husband and I moved to Windsor, CO in 1978 and loved it. At the time there were only 4000 people living there. Windsor is a perfect commute to several towns in the northern part of Colorado. The town is more affordable than the surrounding towns and it gives you a comfy cozy feeling. Again depending on your needs Fort Collins would be my second choice. We lived there as well. It is a town that makes you feel young, energetic, optimistic, safe, and simply full of life. I always look forward to my visits with family in the area. I moved back to New England which too is awesome because of the ocean and simply beautiful too. The fact of the matter is, like I always have told my children and my grandchildren no matter where you live it is what you make of it. There are a lot more great communities in this country than bad. So go where your heart and means initially take you and explore from there. Another thing I always say, is it is easier to find a job you really want when you already have one. The same applies here. GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!

Depending on your circumstances, you might want to check the Douglas County area or the Cherry Creek school district. Both have great schools for your son. I am partial to Douglas County because I live there, but there are many wonderful places to live in Denver.
