Guys, this thread is two years old. I am am sure a housing choice has already been made. I am interested to hear where they landed and their impressions of the area.

Unfortunately, we seldom hear back from these posters, especially if they end up not moving here.

Colorado must be blowing up with people. Our plan is 2-3 years before the move near Denver. We are rural people and my husband does not mind a commute but I do. I will be going to graduate school in Littleton. But it seem very suburby. I would like to be able to take a bus to school if need be or a pedal in the weather permitting. Any suggestions as to what towns. Or would Littleton be okay you think? We are earthy humans. Where would we fit best?

Oh My Gosh, Palo Alto . . . as in the Bay Area??? If it helps you decide, the cost of housing is about 4 times as expensive in Palo Alto as it is in Denver. I haven't been back to the Bay Area in about 10 years, but I hear the traffic is pretty horrendous there--not that it's anything to brag about in Denver either. ; )

muondrt, if you want to cycle or take the bus to school (I'm assuming ACC), then you should look around the Littleton area. Yes, it is suburby, but there are also parts that still have a rural feel. Littleton was an established farming community before being swallowed into the Denver metro area, and there are still some parts of Littleton that have larger lots and even horses. There really aren't any "rural" towns that are within easy biking distance.

Default Frederick, CO

One of the best small towns near denver is Frederick, CO. I've lived here now for many years and would recommend it to anyone. They have a wonderful little downtown area with free family activities almost every week. I know it's a bit of a drive from downtown Denver but if you're still looking I would check it out!

Littleton has a "quaint" downtown area that is really nice, also an "old town". I think it would work just fine for you. If you are going to grad school (seminary?) you need to be near school b/c it takes up a lot of your time.

While I agree about Frederick, it would be impossible for the commuter to Littleton.

Colorado may be blowing up, but Houston has half the population of Colorado inside it.
