We Love Larkspur, the Perry Park area in particular because it still has a mountain feel with the old growth pines, interesting topography and large lots (1 - 5 acres) and the roads are better maintained in the winter than they are in the more mountainous areas.

It is also very accessible only 10 minutes to Castle Rock or Monument for every imaginable convenience and 25 minutes to the Denver Tech Center or 35 minutes to CO Springs for work.

Cool Aspen

Back home is where i'd like to be- back in the mountains of Aspen, CO. You can't beat the snow, asl long as you don't go to Aspen Mountain, with the turists. the surrounding mountains is where it's at. Tina

Aspen is the place. Nothing but genuine people of all races and backgrounds without a phony to be seen.

Manitou Springs gets my vote. I truly miss walking around the quaint shops and the old victorian homes.

Fort Collins for it's liveability (is that a word?), it's downtown and fabulous beer culture. Longmont seems fairly nice and slower paced. Berthoud is a really cute town. We spent some time in Manitou Springs which is pretty nice looking but too hippyish for my taste.

Georgetown is incredibly cute. Buena Vista is nice and in a wonderful valley. I hated Vail for some reason, probably because it doesn't have an old west history. Leadville has a stark, dark beauty about it that intrigues me.

Boulder of course! Lots of outdoor things to do, great weather, great place to raise kids, liberal politics.

Salida--small but thriving mountain town without the attitude of most ski towns, great arts scene, Arkansas River runs smack through town, walk out your door and be in the mountains in just minutes, INCREDIBLE weather, CO Spgs. just over 2 hours away for city stuff...just too expensive for me...

Thumbs up Blanca

Small town, nice people, cheap land, unbelievably beautiful landscape, good weather, large latino population (I'm caucasian, but enjoy the different ethnicities) and has great congressmen, John Salazar, and Ken Salazar (Rep and Sen, respectively).
