Compare Black Forest to Top 10 Best Places
This unincorporated area 30 minutes from Colorado Springs has transformed from a ranch area to a sprawling neighborhood of single-family homes, typically on heavily forested lots of two to 10 acres. In high-end planned communities, prices can go into the millions, but a typical three-bedroom house ran around $350,000 in mid-2011. Families move here for a more private, rural lifestyle--horseback riding, biking, and hiking are all popular--but almost everyone commutes to Colorado Springs or Monument for work. --A.W.Subscribe to Money Magazine
