Do not move here, it is overrated for sure. How US News rated it number 2 in affordability and quality of life is beyond me. Obviously, they do not live here. For starters, it is dirty, boring, expensive and there is no culture. The only thing here of beauty is Pikes Peak and it will not pay the bills. I would say 3/4 of the city is poor. Most homeowners have no pride in ownership. They are rundown, need updating, but refuse to put money into their home. There are very few lawns because of the climate. Everything is fried by the intense sun so rarely is there any greenery. Difficult to grow anything and the environment is brown and dirty. If there is a car accident, prepare yourself because they leave the debris in the road and eventually with moving traffic it is broken down and spread over the road. I have never seen anything like it in all the places I have lived. I have seen huge pieces of glass and bumpers from cars left behind. Drivers have no clue what the rules of the road are. You MUST drive defensively and expect the worst to protect yourself. Managers in large companies have told employees when asked for a raise to look at the mountain because that is their bonus. How insane is that? The biggest mistake of my life was moving here so I want to prevent others from this disaster. It is a dump, there is litter everywhere, where is the quality of life when all there is to do is climb a mountain or bike ride? Oh, and God forbid there is snow. The terrain is hilly and mountainous so you would think the plows would be out to plow and sand the roads early for the commute. That is a joke, there were 70 accidents in one small area one morning because they did not plow or sand and cars slid down the hill into each other. I have never seen anything like it. The city is do cheap, they do not care about safety. Golf ball size hail hit my 6 month old car causing $10,000 in damages. And people are taught in school to say acrossed instead of across, now how ignorant is that??? Most of the natives speak this way. Housing is at an all time premium and who can really afford it when employers are so cheap? You have to come here with a great deal of money and for what? It is the most boring place on earth and so is the food. I am from the northeast and cannot wait to get out of here. Stay where you are, you will be better off.
