Colorado Springs was named the third best city to live in for people in the U.S. in 2019.
With so many people moving to Colorado, we made a list of the best neighborhoods in Colorado Springs, so people new and old can make the best choice when deciding which home to move to.
Located in the northeast corner of the springs, Briargate sits on a slight hilltop and has stunning mountain views from the windows of homes.
The Briargate community is a development that has been established for a while. Although when it was first built it looked like a cookie-cutter neighborhood, it has matured over the years and has gained many unique homes.
The neighborhood is attractive for families because it is affordable, plus it is a part of the Air Academy school district.
Rockrimmon is an older neighborhood that was developed in the 1970’s, so it has the quirky charm that 70’s architecture brought, with curvy streets and Brady Bunch style homes.
Many high-ranking military officers, teachers, & business owners live in Rockrimmon because it is close to the Air Force Academy & is within the Air Academy school district.
Peregrine is a similar neighborhood to Rockrimmon and is close by.
Houses are more expensive and newer in Peregrine, and they have bigger backyards so this is a good neighborhood for those who want more privacy.
Old Colorado City/West Side
Old Colorado City & the West Side are an older area and are just outside downtown Colorado Springs.
There are older homes – victorian style, cottages, cabins – every style of home exists here. In addition to the older homes, there are new homes that have been built on empty lots in the area.
There are a lot of boutique-style stores and small shops that are very attractive to tourists, and are a great feature of the neighborhood.
Northgate is named after the northgate of the Air Force Academy, and is the closest neighborhood to the school.
It is part of the Air Academy school district and is also where Pikes Peak Community College is located.
The city of Northgate has great education opportunity, and has newer shopping developments. It is a neighborhood that is attractive to people who want a great education for their children & a safe area to live.
Also known as the Broadmoor area, this is the most expensive area to live in Colorado Springs.
It is one of the safest neighborhoods in the springs, yet is also the wealthiest area.
The Broadmoor is known for the prestigious Broadmoor Hotel & Resort located in the neighborhood as well.
Most of the residents are upper-middle class professionals, and the homes are historic or modern mansions.
Colorado Springs is a great area to live, located close to the Garden of the Gods, Manitou Incline, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo and much more.
Whether you already live in the springs & are looking to change neighborhoods; or are moving to the springs as a new resident, these cities are a great place to look for your future home.
