I have many friends who have retired to the Springs. With a strong military community, it also has a big draw for many retirees who are looking for a city that is smaller than Denver, but offers many of the same benefits.
With so many aging ex-military people staying in Colorado Springs after a life of seeing the world, it should say something about the appeal. Located near Pike’s Peak along the front range, it is a city with incredible natural beauty.
Consider the Springs if you like quieter cities but want to have many of the same amenities that you would find in any town. With an old downtown area and many state parks such as the Garden of the Gods, there is more to do here than most young people can manage! This can make it an easy place to receive senior care.
