Money Magazine just ranked one spot in Colorado the second best place to live in the country – and it's probably not a town on your radar.
Found just 25 miles south of Denver, the Town of Parker earned this spot thanks to breathtaking views, its proximity to Denver's technology district, and a natural resource-driven economy. It's also worth noting that the population of Parker is booming. Home to around 45,000 residents in 2010, the town's population is now closer to 60,000.
The proximity to Denver means that a lot of the local residents are commuting to the Mile High City for work, though coronavirus changes likely have many more residents working from home. It's also worth noting that a high percentage of the people in this community are home owners – 76 percent.
Only one other Colorado spot also made the cut for Money Magazine's list of 50 best places to live – Broomfield, Colorado ranked as the 18th best spot. Evans, Georgia took the stop spot as a quickly growing town with southern charm.
