"Out of the big city, but close enough to have it all nearby"

Redlands is a really pretty area of western Colorado. It lies adjacent to both Grand Junction on the east and to Colorado National Monument, which is just southwest of it. CNM is a gorgeous park with incredible rock formations dating back 1.7 billion years ago. The formations stand tall and the canyons resemble those of the Grand Canyon. For anyone who is up in this area, it is well worth the visit to see this beautiful park.

Redlands itself has 8,685 residents, and many of the homes are single family. The homes are spread out, and although they are in neighborhoods, no one is stepping on anyones toes here. The yards and landscaping are all nice and well kept, and it's a very clean looking area. Although Grand Junction is just next door, there are enough stores and restaurants to keep residents within the city limits most of the time.

Many residents work in retail trade or professional, scientific, and technical services. The median household income here is $69,381 which is significantly higher than the state average. However, many of the homes here are much higher than the state average as well. A median priced single family home can go for around $344,877. In some of the newer areas the homes are semi-custom and tend to be a little closer together, compared to the older parts of Redlands.

The schools here are good and with so many outdoor adventures nearby, I think this would be a great place to raise a family.
