Coming in at number forty on Money magazine’s 2019 list of the “Best Places to Live” is gorgeous Castle Rock, Colorado. This little quarry town, about a half an hour south of Denver, has come a long way since its inception in 1878. Castle Rock has especially experienced rapid growth over the last decade and continues to expand, with climbing job and population growth rates.
This little municipality, with a current population of just over 65k people, is nestled halfway between Denver and Colorado Springs on the foothills of the great Rocky Mountains just below a big beautiful rock that gives the town its name. Living here comes with all of the advantages of a small community but still places residents in close proximity to larger cities. Parks, golf courses, and the scenic Ridgeline Trail offer plenty of opportunity to enjoy the outdoors.
A little over five years ago Castle Rock also became home to the Outlets at Castle Rock, a modern outdoor shopping center with popular stores and restaurants. A nearby charming downtown area boasts more local shops and restaurants where the city hosts regular events and festivals including the annual Starlighting, at which a star is lit atop the city’s namesake rock. There is also an outdoor ice rink open in the winter months and many residents frequent the Miller Activity Complex where you can enjoy indoor pools, batting cages, and a children’s indoor playground.
The city is safe, affordable, and popular among families and young professionals with a median home price of $480k according to Redfin and a short commute to Denver’s Tech Center.
Just to the north and closer to Denver lies the serene gated community of Castle Pines Village. This neighborhood offers a luxury lifestyle with endless amenities. A sprawling golf course and country club, a crystal-clear reservoir. and countless parks are just some of the activities and destinations to explore. Take advantage of the community’s swimming pools, tennis courts, and playgrounds. Close to outstanding schools, hospitals and art centers, this little slice of paradise is a coveted place to call home.
