RE: Where to live
"Old" Colorado Springs, where I grew up, is now the downtown area. From there you can go East, mostly into acres of malls and tract houses.
Or West, which gets funnelled into a couple of main arterials and eventually leads up the pass into the mountains. This is the more interesting area of town. Colorado City is old red rock buildings (it missed on the modernization/demolition that devastated the downtown) very chic, very nice. Further out are small neighborhoods and eventually Manitou Springs. If I were you I would look downtown or on the west side.
