Castle Rock, Colorado might be your best bet for laid back small town community living, about 30,000 people and everything you need right in the small community, althought it is growing... I lived in downtown Castle Rock and had the historical atmosphere all within walking distance, library, restaurants, and even the clean air shuttle which is free and takes you all over Castle Rock if you have no car, although, it stops running at 5:00 p.m. The housing prices in Colorado are not as low as $160,000 anywhere now, but new condos are at about $160,000 in that area. The weather is not bad at all, the snow melts within a day. Check out B&B Cafe, just like walking into and old era with the marble counter for the coffee crew and the high 10 ft ceilings, (and they left the bullet hole in the ceiling from an old gunfight). Castle Cafe on 4th and Wilcox has a historical ambiance, with the best fried chicken around, I know, I used to live above the restaurant with the wonderful aromas.....Check it out!

I live in C Rock and ... I think Vikki's recall of our housing economy is "overly optimistic". Her recall of our quirky country culture is ... accurate.
