Halfway between Denver and Colorado Springs lies Castle Rock, a town named for its gigantic castle-like butte. Stunning views of the Rockies and vast amounts of open space make Castle Rock one of the most desirable places to live and one of the fastest growing areas in the country.
Here are some recent examples of the national recognition Castle Rock has received:
• No. 1 in Family Circle’s 2010 list of ’10 Best Towns for Families’
• No. 5 in Forbes’ 2009 list of ‘America’s 25 Best Places To Move’
• Top 20 in Money’s 2011 list of ‘100 Best Places to Live in America’
These rankings come as no surprise to those who call Castle Rock home.
