Situated just 20 miles north of the second largest city in Colorado is the small town of Monument. With just 2,500 people, Monument may be just a blip compared to Colorado Springs, but the town still offers a variety of big-city attractions with small-town charm.
The boundaries of Pikes Peak National Park begin just a few miles from Monument, providing the city with a breathtaking view and landscape. The town is also just 2.5 miles from the Air Force Academy, which trains and houses the military. Monument Lake and Woodmoor Lake are both popular recreational destinations in the area. Both are located north of the downtown area, on either side of I-25.
Because of Monument's location just off of the same interstate, both residents and visitors have immediate access to both Colorado Springs and Denver, which is just 55 miles north, and all of the activities and events in both places. In Colorado Springs, Monument residents enjoy Garden of the Gods, a cultural and geological exhibit for all ages, and Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, among other attractions. In Denver, they can watch professional teams from all four major sports leagues.
If you're looking for houses for rent in Monument and are a golf enthusiast, the town has several excellent options, including Woodmoor Country Club. You may also want to look for Monument rental homes around Glendale Golf Club or Fox Run Regional Park. Other popular neighborhoods for homes for rent in Monument include Jackson Creek, Kings Deer, Palmer Lake and Pleasantview Estates. All of these locations are prime places for new or growing families.
