Schriever AFB


Colorado Springs is home to a number of military installations and is an enviable posting! Fort Carson, Peterson Air Force Base, Schriever Air Force Base and the prestigious United States Air Force Academy are all located in this picturesque Colorado town. Did you catch that? There are THREE Air Force installations here. If there is ever a clue to a phenomenal standard of living, it’s that. As a bonus, U.S. News and World Report just ranked Colorado Springs 5th on their 2016 “Best Places to Live” list. Quality of life, job prospects and affordability were key in their ranking of 100 metropolitan cities. Schriever Air Force Base is home to the 50th Space Wing, Space Warfare Center and the Ballistic Missile Defense Organization.

The history of Colorado Springs is rooted in the Gold Rush of the mid-1800’s. Here at the eastern foot of the Rockies you’ll still find evidence of wealthy mine owners in the grand victorian homes near Cheyenne Mountain, as well as the eclectic and frontiersman’s spirit of the miners down in the foothills and surrounding plains. With more than 300 days of glorious sunshine a year, the dry climate and mellow seasons promote an extremely active lifestyle. Locals and tourists alike enjoy year-round outdoor recreation.
