Colorado Puts Two on Best Places to Live List

Louisville and Parker are cited for growth and housing, among other things.


Score one—well, actually two—for Colorado. Two of our fair state’s towns are listed among Money Magazine’s “best places to live” in a new report.

Louisville (at No. 2) and Parker (at No. 12) were each cited for economic viability and housing appreciation. Louisville, a two-time No. 1 on the Money list in the past, is also noted for “its place in the technology-rich Denver-Boulder corridor” that “has kept the job outlook solid.” Parker, despite an earlier downturn in housing during the economic crash, has rebounded nicely, the magazine says: New construction in the town is up and Parker is cited for its performing arts center, its water park, and its 30-minute drive to downtown.


Only Massachusetts—with three towns—had more communities on the top 15 list. Castle Pines is listed as No. 17 on Money’s top-earning towns.
