Colorado Springs Overview

Colorado Springs is a metropolitan city located on the shores of Fountain Creek and at the base of Pikes Peak, on the eastern edge of the southern Rocky Mountains. Despite its natural surroundings, Colorado Springs is the most populous city in El Paso County.

Native American tribes such as the Ute, Cheyenne, and Arapaho were Colorado Springs' earliest inhabitants. Its land was part of 1803’s Louisiana Purchase, but it wasn’t utilized until 1859 when it served as a camp for miners during the Pikes Peak Gold Rush. It wasn’t until Civil War hero General William Jackson Palmer visited the area in 1869 that Colorado Springs began to grow significantly. He fell in love with its scenery, and made Colorado Springs a stop on his Denver and Rio Grande Railroad. A couple of years later, he also created the spa resort town Palmer at the base of Pikes Peak.

The cost of living is just 0.7 percent above the national average, but locals insist it’s worth paying more to live in this picturesque part of the country. The median household income is $56,419, and the median home price is $215,700. In 2006, Money magazine named Colorado Springs the best big city in its annual “Best Places to Live" guide. The city was further honored in 2009, when it was named best American city by Outside magazine.
