The secret is out about living in the town of Castle Rock, a residential community located half-way between Denver and Colorado Springs. Recognized nationally on Family Circle's "10 Best Towns for Families", and Relocate-America's Top 10 Best Places to Live in 2009, Castle Rock's popularity is based, in part, on its open spaces, affordable housing, top-rated schools, employment and low crime.
