If you are already set in your new move, trust Abe Lincoln Movers for all of your Colorado residential moving company needs. If you are still looking for that perfect Colorado town to call home, here are some of the best places to live in Colorado.

Castle Rock

Only a 35 minute drive from Denver, this growing small town sits under a castle shape crested butte that overlooks the Colorado valley below. You can spend all day shopping at The Barn, which is a co-op of over 12 different antique shops and specialty shops. Enjoy the Ridgeline Open Space, over 13 miles of hiking, biking, and walking, to grab your outdoor fix! All in all, there are over 400 acres of canyons, natural beauty, and state parks to enjoy!


No list of Colorado cities would be complete without Boulder. It is probably most known for the University of Colorado at Boulder, but there is much more to enjoy as a resident. It has been listed for a host of bests, including best biking city and best city for singles. Head to Pearl Street to enjoy all of the bars and restaurants in the heart of the city, or make your way to 13th street for a more college bar vibe.

Colorado Springs

Colorado Springs offers great Southern Colorado outdoor activities. You can enjoy the forested foothills at your leisure. Not only do you get access to some of the best outdoors locations, but you can do so at an affordable price; Colorado Springs is one of the lower cost areas of the state, making it a great retirement option! The US Air Force Academy is located in Colorado Springs, as is the national historic district of Old Colorado City. There are few better places to enjoy a dinner or a beer surrounded by the Rockies.

Fort Collins

For the quaint and charming factor, you would be hard pressed to beat Fort Collins, Colorado. Another college town, home to CSU, Fort Collins is a bikers’ paradise. The whole town is accessible by bike trail for the most part. Head to Old Town to enjoy a whole host of bars, breweries, and top tier restaurants. In fact, Fort Collins has so many breweries, in fact, that it makes up 70% of all of Colorado’s craft beer production. Enjoy the Poudre River that runs right through town. Enjoy all of this in the beautiful shadow of the Front Range.
