Why I personally choose to live East of 76: I was so drawn to the amazing views, the openness of the terrain, with many working farms and fields and the few loose cows. Not to mention there are some beautiful homes out here! I love the country feel here, yet can drive 30 minutes to be in Downtown Denver. Having been here for several years now, I really enjoy the old time neighbor helping neighbor attitude that comes living East of 76. If you wanted to have all the benefits of country life and strong sense of community this would be an area to explore as a place to call home.
