"Small town fever" Castle Rock by m47

Castle Rock Travel Guide: 26 reviews and 56 photos

Destination bedroom community

Close enough to Denver yet far enough away to enjoy uncrowded trails, small town niceities, safety on the streets and an opportunity to know your neighbors. Many on my street commute to Denver and many work out of their homes. We live here because of the clean air, open space and QUIET evenings. The weather is real, not boring. A perfect place to relax and entertain.

Don't like the weather - stick around, it changes

Lightning storms are beautiful and silent in early Spring evenings. Winds will blow your lawn furniture 3 house down if it's not secured. Get a tan in 10 minutes in July. Drink lots of water and smother yourself in body lotion - it's dry up here. It snows here in May. It can be 3 feet deep and the next week it's gone. Got shorts and ski wear. Weather tests your driving skills here.

What to do, what to do...

Within a 90 minute drive you can be snow skiing, rock climbing, water skiing, fly fishing, golfing in the mountains, riding horses with no one around, backpacking at 10,000ft, attending a: pro baseball,basketball,hockey,soccer match, PGA tournament, drag races, NASCAR event, grand prix, ESPN Extreme ski competition, Air Force Academy football game, Great Western Rodeo to name a few.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Central yet secluded
  • Cons:The secret's out - we're growing
  • In a nutshell:The perfect place to be
