Are You Moving from Chicago, IL, to Colorado Springs, CO?

Chicago is one of the country’s most beautiful cities, and you probably love many things about living there. Colorado Springs, however, offers a quality of life even Chicago can’t beat. A lower cost of living, diverse and growing economy, great school system, and access to arts, culture and leisure activities, against the backdrop of the beautiful Rocky Mountains, make Colorado Springs one of the most desirable cities in which to live, work, and raise a family. In addition, Colorado Springs is one of the safest cities for children, a claim Chicago cannot make. Add to that a sunny climate, conducive to spending time outdoors, and you will begin to wonder why you’ve waited so long to “Go West”.

What Can Colorado Springs offer that Chicago Can't?

The information below will help you realize why moving to Colorado Springs could be the best move you’ve ever made.

Climate – Colorado Springs residents enjoy more than 300 sunny days each year, so say goodbye to the long, dreary winters of Chicago. The climate in Colorado Springs is relatively mild and dry with winter temperatures ranging from cold and snowy to very mild. Because of the abundance of sunshine, snow does not stay on the ground long. Summer days are warm and followed by very pleasant evenings. The Rocky Mountains provide the perfect backdrop for spring color and fall foliage.

Education – The Colorado Springs School District 11 is the central school district of Colorado Springs. It oversees more than 30 elementary schools, eight middle schools, five high schools, a number of charter schools, and the Swigert Aerospace Academy. A large number of private schools provide an alternate option. The area is home to scores of colleges, universities and special schools, including the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs (UCCS), the United States Air Force Academy, and Colorado Technical University.

 Entertainment – With its relatively mild climate and abundance of sunshine, Colorado Springs is a Mecca for outdoor activities. White water rafting, skiing, biking, and hiking are just a few activities for the outdoor lover. You won’t want to miss area attractions like the Garden of the Gods, the Air Force Academy, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, and Pikes Peak. Museum attractions are plentiful and range from the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center, the Numismatic Museum for coin lovers and the Pioneers Museum for a little local history. Like Chicago, the downtown area bustles with the energy of an active nightlife. No matter what your interests, there’s an activity certain to keep you entertained in Colorado Springs.

Economy – Colorado Springs is home base to an increasingly diversified economy, driven by a mix of military installations, defense contracting, health care, software development, telecommunications, semiconductor manufacturing, data centers, and tourism.
