"Dillon is a pretty mountain town and gateway to ski resorts"

Dillon is a cool town adjacent and pretty much connected to Silverthorne just to its west. Dillon Reservoir is a big lake as far a Colorado goes and it is popular for sailboats and speedboats, it usually freezes in the winter and it a landmark when traveling west into the mountains from Denver, once you see the lake you have gotten through the Eisenhower Tunnel pass on I-70 and you are on your way farther west to Utah or making your turn towards Breckenridge or onto the Vail Valley and Aspen. This is a great community to live in too for ski bums or business minded people who want to take advantage of the tourists and live in a great place. This would be a nice place for a family to check out real estate or invest in a vacation property.

There are about a thousand people who live in Dillon and the average household income is about $50,000/year.
Pros
  • close to ski resorts
  • great restaurants
  • great views
Cons
  • along I-70

"Dillon--ski bum real estate:)"

Dillon is a cool town even though it is along I-70 and pretty touristy is manages to pull off a good vibe. The lake is huge and you will see sailboats on it in the warmer months. On the far side of Dillon Reservoir there are some nice homes right at water front that are worth checking out. Keystone and Breck are just a skip away and for a ski bum young or old this could be a great investment town.
Pros
  • great restaurants
  • close to ski resorts
  • great views
Cons
  • along I-70
