Fresh Place Fridays- Spotlight on Colorado Springs
Getting to know the great state in which we live and work is important to us. As Colorado’s premier moving and storage company and one of the most trusted locally owned companies in the industry, we take pride in our surroundings. We enjoy getting to know the locals as well as moving our customers from areas we know and love into areas that we are interested in knowing more about.
Currently, Exodus has offices and storage facilities in both Fort Collins and Denver. For the most part, this holds up what is considered the Northern Colorado portion of the state map. But in an effort to educate others and to highlight other fascinating places, this week we would like to showcase another wonderful city within our state lines. This Fresh Place Friday is dedicated to the city of Colorado Springs.
Colorado Springs History and Location
Colorado Springs is located in what is considered to be the South Central part of Central Colorado just over 60 miles south of Denver. The township was originally established in 1871 and was designed to be the first stop on a new Denver & Rio Grande Railroad route from Denver to Mexico City. Its founder, William Jackson Palmer, created Colorado Springs to be a mini resort town, a tourist destination of sorts. And by the end of the 19th century, he had accomplished just that.
Today Colorado Springs is one of the largest cities in El Paso County. Situated near Pikes Peak, this township is more than a mile high at an altitude of 6,035 feet and is the second most populous city in all of Colorado. Boasting a mild climate as a result of its close proximity to the Rocky Mountains, the city is a fantastic location for both vacationing and living.
The People and Culture
Brimming with life and art and opportunity, there are many reasons why Colorado Springs is such a popular place to live in Colorado. Fashion fairs, health events and cultural exhibitions abound including award winning Conservatory Theater and countless community based drives, dinners and donation opportunities in addition to fascinating museum offerings. Whether you are seeking family events, excellent dining or live performances, original calendar events are in constant development in “The Springs”. With its large military community as home to the prestigious United States Air force Academy , Colorado Springs boasts a historical Native American population, several Olympic sport teams and a thriving high-tech industry. With this type of diversity of opportunity and population, it’s no wonder this city is such a popular destination.
At Exodus we are proud to move people to and from Colorado Springs for both residential and commercial moves.
