Colorado has been getting all sorts of attention lately when it comes to national rankings, with one recent list highlighting a Denver suburb known for being a great place to raise a family.
Holly Hills, found southeast of downtown Denver, stole the 2nd place spot on a '50 best places to live in America' list published by The Roanoke Times. In addition to noting that the suburb is a great place to raise a family, Holly Hills was also given a nod as a great place to retire.
According to The Roanoke Times, most homes in the suburb are older, built between 1940 and 1969 with a median value of $460,100. Perhaps even more notable is that 97 percent of residents own.
With a population of 2,835, the median household income in Holly Hills is quite high at $132,955. Colorado's median is around $72,000.
The only spot in the United States was ranked higher than Holly Hills was Chesterbrook, Pennsylvania.
