So are there any towns in the 15-20 mile radius around Littleton that have kick a$$ schools plus reasonably priced houses?

Well....there's Littleton. I suggest you look there first. The Denver metro isn't like back east where there's a ton of little towns all clustered together. It's more giant, sprawling suburbs that go on and on...

What's your definition of reasonable? How much house do you want and how much do you want to spend?

I don't think Littleton is going to be more expensive than Cherry Hill. I think, in general the weather is better in the Denver area than in Jersey. I'm from outside of Trenton. Winters don't send me into a depression spiral here and the cold isn't the damp kind that you feel in your bones.

Littleton is quite nice in general, though I haven't spent any time in the older areas. What I miss are the river towns of PA and NJ and the sense of history that was just pervasive throughout the area. Plus the cozy pubs and sandwich shops, I used to frequent. The vibe in Colorado is different, and sometimes I miss the Jersey vibe.

But the mountains make up for it.

I have 3 young kids, the oldest of which just started kindergarten so being around good schools is a must. I've heard and read a ton of good stuff about living in Colorado but haven't heard too much negative. Is CO really as great a place as people are saying? Just looking for the truth. I don't want to move my whole family and wind up hating it. Thanks!
There are plenty of online COL calculators that let you compare cities. Of course, they all need to be taken with a grain of salt. There's less concern about "good" school districts here b/c most of them actually ARE good!
Cost of living: How far will my salary go in another city? - CNNMoney I wouldn't go 15-20 miles out if I could help it. The commute can be a big problem when it snows, like doubling your drive time.

For a move of that magnitude, there will be an adjustment. You will miss some things about Jersey, no doubt. But hopefully, those things will be replaced with good things about CO.

Pueblo isn't Denver either, nor is Pueblo West, nor is Fowler, nor is Manzanola, nor is Rocky Ford, nor is Swink, nor is La Junta, nor is Las Animas, nor is Hasty, nor is Mc Clave, nor is Wiley, nor is May Valley, nor is Lamar, nor is Springfield, nor is Grenada, nor is Holly, nor is Walsh, nor is Two Buttes, nor is Kim, nor is Campo, nor is Pritchett, nor is Branson, nor is Trinidad, nor is Walsenburg, nor is LaVeta, nor is Colorado City Rye and San Isabel, nor is Beulah, nor is Cañon City, nor is Salida, nor is Sargent, nor is Center, nor is Del Norte, nor is Sanford, nor is South Fork, nor is Pagosa Springs, nor is Durango, nor is Cortez, nor is Ignacio, nor is Bayfield, nor is Paonia, nor is Cedaredge, nor is Montrose, nor is Grand Junction, nor is Meeker, nor is Aspen, nor is Basalt, nor is Flagler, nor is Seibert, nor is Vona, nor is Bethune, nor is Stratton, nor is Burlington, nor is Wray, nor is Holyoke, nor is Joes, nor is Haxtun, nor is Akron, nor is Julesburg, nor is Wiggins, nor is Otis, nor is Calhan, ...

All places that don't have their own Colorado subforum.

I'm of the opinion that all of the Denver GMR excluding Boulder shlould not just get thrown into this vast expanse of 108,000+ square miles which is the large state of Colorado.

Thank you Moderators for the work you do here.

Dogster, I've urged the site owner on several occasions to bust up the Colorado forum into distinct geographic regions so that every inch of the state is in one of 8-10 specific regional forums. Although it would be somewhat arbitrary it could be done, but his organizational scheme is to stick to four major city areas and let the rest go into one big bucket. I've also made the case for a Pueblo regional forum but have not prevailed.

Part of what will matter is WHERE in Littleton.

OP can you provide a specific address or major cross streets for where you will work? That would be most helpful.
