  |     |   Colorado

You’re looking for an apartment in beautiful Colorado Springs… congratulations! There’s a reason U.S. News named Colorado Springs the number-one most desirable place to live in the United States. One of the outstanding aspects of living here is our city’s location at the base of Pikes Peak and the Rocky Mountains. Another is all the fun things there are to do in the area.
When apartment hunting in Colorado Springs, look for a friendly neighborhood atmosphere that’s enhanced by the surrounding beauty of the area. Here are some more tips:
Look from the inside out
Think about what you want to look at outside your window each day. Some apartments may offer fine amenities, but you may have to see the side of another building when you peer out. We live in a beautiful city. Take advantage of the natural scenery and instead, choose to enjoy breathtaking views of Pikes Peak from your living room window.
Consider easy errand-running and your commute
No one wants to spend their time off stuck in a car. Ideally, you’ll want to choose an apartment in a prime location that’s tucked away from the everyday hustle and bustle, yet still convenient to downtown and I-25.
Take a stroll in a walkable neighborhood
Consider looking for a bright, spacious apartment on the east side of Colorado Springs in a pleasantly leafy neighborhood. Local residents in this area love walking to Dutch Bros. Coffee, Safeway, and Brunswick Zone, and avoiding lengthy drop-off lines at nearby Twain Elementary School.
