Why Colorado Springs is Ranked as the Best Place for Veterans

Consistently named one of the healthiest states in the United States, Colorado is also one of the nation’s most popular vacation destinations, attracting millions of visitors each year. With more days of sunshine every year than in Miami, individuals and families can participate in a variety of activities, including hiking, biking, skiing, sporting events, and several other exciting attractions.

At Tralon Homes, a Colorado premier home builder for more than 10 years in the Colorado Springs area, our communities have a national reputation for its quality of life and wide array of activities and attractions.

Our communities offer a quick and easy commute to our area’s military installations, including the United States Air Force Academy, Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station, Fort Carson Army Post, Peterson Air Force Base, and Schriever Air Force Base. 

The Colorado Springs military community is very strong and diverse, and we recognize the importance and value of our military to the local area. The military has a $12 billion annual impact on the regional economy, employs more than 100,000 residents, and is home to more than 50,000 military veterans.

A Destination for Military Veterans

Recently named the No. 6 Best City for Veterans to Live by Business Insider and Veterans United, Colorado Springs also led the rankings in terms of its economy for veterans, with the study citing housing affordability, veteran income, and income growth, percentage of veterans in poverty, educational opportunities and homelessness as key factors.

In addition to military installations, Colorado Springs is a popular destination for military reunions and military history. Below are a few military attractions that make this city so popular:

  • The United States Air Force Academy is one of the most popular attractions in Colorado, attracting more than a million visitors every year. Check out the visitor center and cadet chapel.
  • The National Museum of World War II Aviation is a museum that honors those who flew in combat. It is the only museum in the world to focus exclusively on the role of aviation in World War II. Adjacent to the museum is WestPac Restorations, a premier World War II aircraft restoration facility.
  • The Peterson Air & Space Museum features several educational exhibits, a Medal of Honor Park, and 16 different aircraft.
  • The 4th Infantry Division (ID) Museum at Fort Carson is a great place to learn about the history of the 4th ID and view exhibits and artifacts dating back to 1917.
