Living in Colorado Springs, CO
The first inhabitants of the Colorado Springs area were the Ute, Cheyenne, Kiowa and Arapahoe Indians. Summers saw the tribes gather at their sacred grounds in the area now known as the Garden of the Gods park. It was a former Civil War General from Pennsylvania named William Jackson Palmer that saw potential in the area as a town site when he arrived in 1870. Soon after, he founded the city of Colorado Springs along with the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad. He planned to make the town a resort destination. His 67-room castle, called Glen Eyrie, still stands in town today and is open to the public. Following the discovery of gold in nearby Cripple Creek in the 1890s, Colorado Springs was the leading mining exchange center in the world. It also earned itself the nickname "the city of millionaires." Following the gold rush, tourism, particularly health tourism, drove the economy. Early visitors, especially those suffering from tuberculosis, were drawn by recuperative properties of the mild climate and dry conditions.
Those climate conditions are still attracting people today. The city of Colorado Springs now has a population of more than 415,000, with about 645,000 in the metro area. A big economic driver these days is the military, which has multiple installations in the area.
Climate, green spaces, cultural amenities and school performance have earned Colorado Springs high marks. Forbes magazine named the city to its 2011 list of the Best Retirement Places.
