Lots of reasonable cost housing nearby if you don't mind life in the suburbs. Part of Englewood (in name only, its really just a postal designation), Centennial, Parker, and South Aurora on the east side of I-25 are decent options, although you might get caught in traffic if you have to use Arapahoe during rush hours. Nicer housing with higher costs on the west side of I-25. If you just want to rent first there are plenty of condos for rent and a few apartment complexes just down the road from the office in the area usually referred to as Dove Valley.

I am from Houston and my dad is from Mississippi! I've lived in Colorado for most of my life now. One thing that will be different for you is the lack of trees! I would look for a more established area for that reason- most like what you are leaving! We live in Centennial in the Highlands 460 neighborhood which would be an easy commute for you. Colorado is much more casual that Texas and people are more laid back- which can be mistaken for rudeness when you are used to the south. Best of Luck on your move!

For townhomes - look into Olde Mille. We lived there and loved it - it's very close to what you are talking about. As far as homes go - lots of choices and price points in the area. I am a fan of west Centennial - I think it is older and prettier. But E. of the Valley Hwy (I25) might be more affordable.

Lots of apartments in the area too. The Villas (we lived there too) are a good stopping point as you look around.
