    What do you like about Colorado Springs? It is friendly, sunny, and breath takingky beautiful
    What do you dislike about Colorado Springs? The extremes between the Christian right and the Liberal left.
    What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in? I like where I live in Monument the best, but Old Colorado City and Manitou are fun too.
    How expensive is it? It is moderately expensive but still a value. I came from Texas, which is cheaper, but I also own a home in CA, which is expensive. Colorado Springs is a value because the property taxes and state taxes together are about equivalent to Texas property taxes and much less than CA. Cost if living is pretty moderate in general. Homes are more expensive than Texas, but you get more for your money.
    Is it safe? I have lived here (Monument) for 15 years and have never locked my doors ever.
    How is the weather? When I moved here, I thought it was going to be cold. I have experienced it to be a very good balance of seasons, not too cold, not too hot. No place but San Diego compares with our summers. Springs are a bit snowy, but we have more sunshine than Miami, FL.
    Additional thoughts? I love where we live. It is beautiful and scenic. The people are pretty wonderful in general. It is a great place to be outside.
