Son moving to CO soonMy son who graduated high school in Texas last May is considering moving to Colorado Springs. He's been to CO twice in the last few months and loves it. I've never been to Colorado Springs and only to CO for ski trips so am clueless on the area. I am taking him in a couple of weeks so he can make decisions about where to live and work. He has a graphic design background, studies all through high school, but with being young might have a tough time finding a job in that field so would look for a job at a place like Main Event or a game type place or retail store, he just doesn't want to work in fast food. My question is this....where would a good part of town and affordable be for someone like him where he would have to pay his rent from working in a retail type job? Lastly, is there a community college there where he could take some graphic design courses? TIA!

Home Search- Networking - EmploymentMy husband & I are 30 Years+ LCSWs and Psychotherapists letting go of Oklahoma and moving with hope and excitement to Colorado Springs. No children now, 2 chocolate Labs, cats, and wish to maintain one therapy office out of our home. Prefer established neighborhood, safe, fireplace a must, porch a must, view important, enclosed garage, I am a cook so kitchen is a priority, bringing our hottub (my bones hurt-previous athlete). My husband is of course an old hippie, I am part-artist as well. Drawn very much to Manitou Springs, but again, we require a home office. Unfortunately, Our 20 year home investment has declined in OKC, so I must keep below 275,000, which when I search the homes listed, I find dismal choices and this will still create debt at our age. I am seeking employment there currently, but salaries are less than stellar as well. I have MBA too, and have been on the other side as CEO, Administrator, Executive Director, etc of Hospice, Home Health, Mental Health and Substance abuse, Social Work.
Also a high priority is creating a new "Family of Choice for Friends!" Community, values, and integrity of area is too important for like mindedness.
Seeking guidance, information, networking, and friends
What are your thoughts about the Colorado Springs Balloon Classic?I've seen some amazing photographs depicting the Colorado Balloon Classic in Colorado Springs. The event has always been something I've wanted to attend, it looks like it would be fun for the whole family! It also seems like a great cause as some of the proceeds go to various charitable organizations. Has anyone attended this event? Where exactly is it held? What exactly goes on at the event? Is it essentially a large group of people who watch the hot air balloons as they cruise through the sky? Do they have food/drinks?
