Hi All,
We're in the Boston area and we're done with overcast all the time! Last kid leaving in 2 years and want to relocate to CO. Spent 4 days driving around in early Jan. and think we need to zoom in on two areas: Louisville/Superior/Broomfield OR south of the DTC - Lone Tree/Centennial. We looked at two 55+ communities out there but we'd be pretty young and the majority of folks in those communities don't work.

Early 50s right now so need to be in decent commute range to industry. Really want a more walkable place to live with other folks our age in the mix who we can bike, hike, play tennis with. New construction would also be great if possible that comes with community center, pool, rec facilities, courts, trails.

Any suggestions? This is not as easy to figure out as our last home search which was all about the school systems!

Thanks!

Anthem in Broomfield has new construction, trails, rec. center, trails and tennis courts. Anthem Highlands is the all ages section. Anthem Ranch is the 55+ section.

Thanks for reaching out - went to see both Anthem and Heritage Todd Creek. Do you know if there are any 55+ communities getting built south of Denver? The commute to the DTC from Broomfield would be rough.

DH and I were in your same situation when we moved out here over the summer. We ended up in SE Aurora because it suited our commute the best. I can tell you that Heritage Eagle Bend is a very active age-restricted community where you always see people out walking. Parts of the community are 45+. There are also empty-nesters moving into the surrounding areas. Lots of new ranch homes being built. The east-bound commute on E470 to 25 isn't bad.

Lone Tree is packed in with apts and houses. The focal point is Park Meadows Mall. Not sure what part of the Boston area you are from, but you may be used to that density there, so Lone Tree won't seem like much of difference.

Where are your jobs going to be? That is the first factor you need to consider when getting on the bandwagon to join the inbound migration to Colorado. Traffic here is very bad during rush hour and getting worse each day, not only due to the amount of vehicles, but as a result of lunatic drivers causing accidents.

BTW, the if you are a fan of the Bruins, don't get excited about seeing the Avs. You have an Original 6 team and we have a team where attending a game at Pepsi Center, the game is secondary. Primary is the ice girls and all the other idiotic crap they put on the video screen. I'll be at the game this Wednesday night . . . GO BRUINS!!!
