Don't Move to drug world

I have been here almost 12 years in the last 3 the drugs, violent crime, cover up up crime has exploded. I'm scared for my family to live here and we are currently looking to move. save your sanity and don't live here, no jobs, very expensive, no child care, no cheep family activities to do more than once. Once you've done the train, bridge, dinosaur & stuff you'll never pay to do it again.

Nice small town to live in

I have lived in Canon City for nine months now and I can say that the people here are very friendly. We often find ourselves chatting with strangers when we go to the stores.
There is a great deal of outdoor activities here that make it fun for all ages. My mother who can not walk very well found it great fun to go down to the River and soak her feet. The Royal George park is not something you want to miss if you find yourself driving through town on highway 50.
The historic down town is beautiful and the city provide many fun activities throughout the year. We have a particularly great time at the Christmas parade of lights! One of our favorite things to tell our family back home about is all the wild life that live in town. Dear can be seen daily all year round. A drive to big horn sheep canyon is fantastic!
There are limited movie opportunities and shopping, but that is what you can expect to sacrifice for a small town feel.
