"A small town off of Highway 34 on the eastern plains"

Otis, Colorado is a town with only 475 residents on the eastern plains of Colorado, and looks like you're typical small town. The homes are all smaller, single family residences which have pretty good sized yards. The major industry here is manufacturing, and almost 25% of the population works in this industry. There are also a lot of truck drivers that live here. The median household income in Otis is $28,242 with just under 12% of the residents living below the poverty level. You can buy an average sized, single family home for around $86,034.

There aren't too many amenities in Otis, but Sterling (pop. 14,725) is only about 50 minutes away by car for shopping and dining options. Otis also has it's own small airport.

This town would be perfect for someone who wants to get away from it all, in a quiet, small community. The cost of living is really good, but the tradeoff is the lack of amenities.
  • good cost of living
  • remote
  • no amenities
