"Fish Creek Road goes to the hotsprings:)"

The neighborhhods of the Fish Creek Road area are amazing, this is the way to the Strawberry Hotsprings so it does get some traffic. The High School is also near the neighborhood which is a great school and great for the neighborhood but again is a source of traffic through the neighborhood. Toursists love this place for skiing, hiking in the summer and again I mention the wonderful magical Strawberry Hotsprings (looks like a Hobbit land). I think it is the best hotsprings in Colorado! To love in this neighborhood would be a dream.

The cost of home and property I imagine is pretty high in the area, it is close to downtown (within miles) plus the homes are fairly large and achitecturally unique. This is not a typical suburban neighborhood it has character.

If you get out of the more concentrated neighborhood area you move down the road and up into the mountain toward the hotsprings, this is a beautiful valley and there are some big ranches with cattle and horses. There are some dream ranches there as well.

The beauty of Fish Creek is that you coulud easily drive, bike or even walk into town to the many stores, bars and restaurants and still feel that you are in the mountains. I give this place top ratings.
Pros
  • beautiful unique neighborhood

Cons
