What do you like about Colorado Springs? It was a very tight knit community and once you got into a clique of people, they treat you like family. Everyone knows everyone and it really helps with getting around and having a social life. The theatre scene is pretty big and once you have a car, your parents really don't have much say on what you do here because if you know people everything is free.

What do you dislike about Colorado Springs? Getting into the community is really hard because everyone here has known each other since they were born practically. There's so much homeless people, oh my god like lock your car doors always because they will steal anything out of your car. They stole my pennies. There's also a lot of drug influence. My next door neighbors had to be arrested cuz they were making meth and I lived right beside a police department so.

What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in? I love Manitou so much, it's so artsy and there's hippies everywhere. It has so many places to eat and so many different walks of life. The GoodWills in this town are so good like the best GoodWills ever. The one in downtown Manitou is small, but it's better than the one on Circle, trust me.

How expensive is it? Manitou is pretty expensive because of all the tourists, but food is alright prices and none of them are ridiculous. Even downtown has pretty acceptable prices. I don't really know about the shopping because I really just like thrifting. Antique stores are crazy expensive though, but it's the same stuff at GoodWill like idgi.

Is it safe? It is if you lock your doors and have a good security system. I didn't have a security system, but it was okay. I knew some people in Broadmoor Bluffs who's house was broken into. In Skyway it's like a daily thing though like I honestly would never live in Skyway. It's really gorgeous, but I know probably ten people who live there and their house has been broken into like no thank you.

How is the weather? The winters suck cuz your hair gets so dry it starts to become static-y and that's like insanely annoying. The summers are 80 degrees with zero humidity, but make sure you get up early cuz it rains like daily at 12-2 and it's like heavy heavy rain and it closes all the pools. I love the rain though and honestly, I don't think it's ever warm enough to swim here. It's like when you come out of the water you stick your entire body into a freezer.

Additional thoughts? I'm never moving back here again, but I'm glad I did.

What do you like about Colorado Springs?
I don't know what this person is searching for, but if it is for intelligence, she needs to refine her own. The people in Colorado Springs are friendly, helpful, outgoing and most (except for the rare few who think too much of themselves)are artistic and intelligent. Most I have met are as calm as anywhere else. If this person doesn't like Colorado, God help her if she moves to Texas. I've lived there most of my life.
Additional thoughts?
Not everyone is pleased with everything, but all it takes is one person with an attitude and that makes ten. Like dominoes it doesn't take much to knock it down. If she's lived in 20 states in 27 years it sounds a bit like she should find a place to "root" down in. We lived in Texas, as I said/ all our lives, made a visit to Colorado and fell in love with it. The people are very laid back. Maybe it's the climate, who knows. As for computers not many people know IT fields, etc. But everyone knows a little bit of something. That is what makes the world go around.
