What's Morrison like? We're looking for a friendly town with parks and rec not too far from skiing. The housing in Morrison seems to be priced just right for us. What else does this town have to offer?

It depends on where in Morrison you will be. The town of Morrison is off Morrison road and offers foothills living and easy access to I-70 & C-470. Home to Bandemere speedway and Red Rocks a Denver County owned concert venue with to die for views.

Downtown morrison is very tiny. there are a couple of good restaurants right there, though. it is very close to red rocks park and matthews-winters park which are good for hiking. red rocks amphitheatre gets a few good concerts here and there. there are other good hiking/mountain biking areas that are just minutes away (green mountain, lookout mountain, etc.) if you ever need to go into the city, denver is not that far away.

also, you have close access to i-70 which will take you through the mountains towards the big name ski areas (breckenridge, vail, etc.). unfortunately, driving on i-70 at the peak of ski season can be a hassle.
