Best Places to Live in Colorado

When it comes to ranking the best places to live in Colorado, our community has again risen to the top. Parker took the No. 2 spot on HomeSnacks’ 10 Best Places to Live in Colorado for 2021.

The report compared the state’s 74 municipalities with populations above 5,000 across nine data points, with each community’s average rank across all criteria determining the final order. Parker’s place was boosted by low crime statistics, low unemployment rate and its proximity between Denver and Colorado Springs.
