I don't know much about it, but can offer what I've observed.
I really like Fort Collins, but don't think a whole lot of CO Springs.
The two towns actually have a lot in common, but, if you spend time in both, you'll see that they're quite different.
The housing prices will be cheaper in Colorado compared to Southern California except for the mountain areas, Boulder and urban Denver (the good areas, that is).
Fort Collins has been growing very quickly, so it does have quite a bit of traffic (but no freeways) and is relatively sprawling and spread out.
It's a college town though, and has a beautiful Downtown district with lots of shops, restaurants and nightlife.
