Sweet Sixteen!

According to Money Magazine, Colorado has 5 cities among the 100 Best Places to Live in America. Fort Collins was at No. 70, Boulder ranked in at 60 claiming its residents are among the happiest and healthiest in the nation. The family friendly cities of Centennial, 49, and Highlands Ranch, 23, have great outdoor spaces such as pedestrian and bike trails and great parks and recreation centers. But, in the top 20 and the address of Castle Pines Village is Castle Rock at 16, how sweet it is! Castle Rock is the yuppy town with an old west vibe, a mix of western horse trailer and Bentley... just saw one in the Castle Pines Country Club parking lot! It is one of the few cities in the nation that on a summer weekend you can trifecta with a round of golf on one of the Jack Nicklaus signature courses in the morning, fish, hike, bike or lounge by a pool in the afternoon and take in a rodeo in the evening. A vacation day like this would cost a fortune, yet it is the backyard playground for many a Castle Pines resident. Castle Rock is just two exits from Castle Pines Village to the south, it is the county seat for Douglas County and home to government entities as well as the famed rodeo and parade. Quaint shops and restaurants dot the town, and most of the townies serve up cowboy hospitality.

I was a resident of Castle Pines Village for 20 years, currently reside in Cherry Creek North and a 4th generation Denverite. posted: August 21, 2012 - Judy's Denver - Blog
