5 Reasons to Build a Home in Colorado Springs

In Colorado Springs, we’re in no shortage of things to do. One of the larger cities in Colorado and still growing, Colorado Springs has tons of shopping, restaurants, and downtown activities for you to enjoy or vibrant outdoor activities for you to take part in. From natural features that make you stand in awe to some of the best entertainment venues in the country, Colorado Springs has something for everyone.

Garden of the Gods

The Garden of the Gods’ reputation holds up to its name. Consistently ranked near the top for parks — in the entire world and the U.S. — the Garden of the Gods is a natural landmark formed by sandstone rock formations that tower almost 300 feet high. Aside from the beautiful backdrop of the garden, there are plenty of activities to take place in. From hiking and biking to horseback riding and rock climbing, the garden is still very accessible for a nice day on the trails despite the many cars that tour through. It’s truly a blessing to live in a home built nearby.

The Rocky Mountains

The Rocky Mountains are an obvious attraction all throughout Colorado. However, Colorado Springs offers the best of the mountains without all the drawbacks of living directly in them. Nestled right up against the Front Range, homes in Colorado Springs have a higher quality of climbing and hiking within a short driving distance than some of its upstate counterparts who aren’t as close to the mountains or have ones that are as tall, and you won’t have to worry about nearly as much snow as those actually living in the mountains.

Denver Sports’ Teams

Just over an hour from Colorado Springs is Denver. Denver, the most famous city in Colorado, hosts sports teams from every major sport. Football, baseball, basketball, hockey, and even soccer, it’s all here in Denver. It’s one of the few cities where you get to root for a home team in every sport. Coors Field, Avalanche, and Arsenal games are all great ways to take family or friends for a memorable and affordable event and building in Colorado Springs gives you a short drive to each.

Red Rocks Amphitheatre

If you’re going to build a custom home in Colorado Springs, or really anywhere along the Front Range, then you need to make sure that you visit Red Rocks at least once. Another world famous attraction of Colorado’s, hugely popular musicians play at Red Rocks and keep coming back because of the amazing crowds and the effects of the natural amplification that the rocks provide. U2 recorded their hit live album, “Under a Blood Red Sky,” at Red Rocks, and they routinely feature the biggest artists in rap and hip hop, EDM, folk, country, and much more. No matter what the genre, music lovers find harmony at Red Rocks.

Easy Living for Military Families

One of the more conservative areas of Colorado, Colorado Springs is home to much military activity. Led by Army and Air Force bases as well as the air force academy, some of the nation’s finest come to Colorado Springs to help defend their country. Most of the military installations around the area border the city to the north, east, and south. At Murphy’s Custom Homes, we have a number of building lots that are close to these installations as well as shopping, the Colorado Springs Airport, and other amenities.
