Living in Colorado Springs

January 8, 2023

We’re excited about the homes we’ll be building soon in the Revel Terrace neighborhood at Wolf Ranch, where just about everything is an easy walk or bike-ride away, including plenty of entertainment and activities. Plus, you have all of the perks of living in Colorado Springs, which has its own extensive mix of fun, food, and more. If you’re considering purchasing one of our homes in Colorado Springs, check out some of the great things you can do here!

U.S. News looked at 150 metro areas in the United States, scoring them on quality of life, job market, and overall appeal of living in these areas. The result is that Colorado Springs was named #1 among the best places to live in Colorado and #2 in the best places to live in the US. Considering Pikes Peak – which was part of the inspiration for the song “America the Beautiful” – is part of Colorado Springs scenery, it’s easy to start to see the city’s appeal.

In fact, it’s the blend of great natural beauty and the related outdoor activities, along with city-living perks, that make Colorado Springs such a great place to live. Plus, with a median age of 34.8 years old, Colorado Springs is a lively place with a variety of options and is great for families.

Colorado Springs has a relatively dry and mild climate. As a result, outdoor activities are extremely popular, particularly as the city is home to the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Training Centers, as well as the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Museum. It’s not just the Olympians who enjoy staying active; residents are also outdoors enjoying plenty of hiking, mountain biking, as well as paddleboarding on Wolf Lake, or taking in the scenery of Red Rock Canyon Open Space. Even dogs get into the outdoor enjoyment with the “Woof” Ranch dog park at Wolf Ranch.

Daily cycling is growing in popularity for fun and for transport. The city has added a number of bike lanes and commuter paths connecting the downtown area. In total, there are more than 100 miles of on-street routes, almost 120 miles of urban bike trails, and more than 60 miles of unpaved mountain bike trails. If you do move into Revel Terrace, you’ll be able to enjoy walking and biking trails at Gateway Park, plus you can easily bike to the local farmer’s market.

Of course, there’s plenty to enjoy indoors, as well. There are more than two dozen breweries to try, including one housed in a former school built in 1916. If you’re interested in the arts, Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College features galleries, as well as live theater productions. The Pikes Peak Center is another place to enjoy a range of cultural events including performances by the Colorado Springs Philharmonic, theater productions, and performances by touring musicians and comics. For families, as well as anyone else, other popular attractions include the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, and the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum, which explores the region’s history.

These are just some of the reasons why Colorado Springs is such a great place to call home. If you’ve been considering moving to the city or finding a new home here, contact us to learn more about the new Revel Terrace neighborhood that is coming soon. We build thoughtful, quality homes in Colorado Springs and Revel Terrace will be an ideal neighborhood to let you enjoy all that the city has to offer.
