I was born and raised in California, been living in Oklahoma now since 1991. Tired of living in poverty. Been to Colorado. LOVE it! I have two grown kids whom I haven't seen in 4 years, and a 10 year old with me. My older children would come to see me if I was in CO. Thinking about Loveland? I know its more expensive there, but where there is a will there is a way. I am also a christian and would be looking for a good church. Any suggestions?

I am sure those on the Front Range will want to chime in but I can tell you the cities that may be good for what you are looking for are Fort Collins, Loveland, Longmont and Colorado Springs. They have a lot of churches and are nice family oriented cities to live in.

My new son-in-law grew up in Enid, OK, farming wheat with his dad. He and my daughter went to college at Colorado Christian University in Lakewood, CO, graduated last year, and recently married. They are living in Broomfield and he just loves it here.

Along the northern front range, Loveland, Ft. Collins, etc., there are a good variety of churches and denominations, of all sizes. The really big ones in Loveland are The Church of the Resurrection (just known as Rez around here), Crossroads, and in Ft. Collins, Timberline, and Faith Evangelical Free.

Home prices are all over the board. Nice older Loveland homes built in the 60's & 70's in established neighborhoods can be purchased for under $200K. Prices go up from there. I have heard that there is a new neighborhood going in in Loveland that will be in the $150K-$180K range.

If you have more interest in Loveland and surrounding areas, please look me and I'll help you out the best I can.

My mom and I plan to relocate to CO next summer. We are looking for a city with the approx. population of 30,000-50,000. So far, Loveland, Broomfield and Wheat Ridge have really caught our eye. Mom is concerned that Broomfield is is the middle of all these major highways. (noisy, congested, crazy traffic, etc.) Loveland is a little larger than she prefers. What about Wheat Ridge? Can you tell me more about this city?

I would appreciate ANY info you could post of any of these cities. Is there another city you can suggest that is within an hour or so of Denver?

You also might look at Golden. It has about 20,000 and feels like it's own town, but close to Denver for shopping, the arts and so forth. It is a nice place. Worth considering.
