Lone Tree is one of the most up-and-coming areas of the Front Range. The city is known as the restaurant capital of Colorado, but we’re also known for shopping, entertainment, and close proximity to Denver (18 miles is all). If you’ve considered moving to Lone Tree, here are a few of the top things we commonly hear from residents:
Lone Tree Is Great for Outdoor Adventuring
If you’re someone who enjoys getting outside to take advantage of all that Colorado has to offer, Lone Tree is the spot for you. The city is within close distance to some of the state’s best hiking and biking trails. There’s also plenty of nature trails for anyone who is looking for something more relaxed and if you enjoy observing birds, there’s plenty of locations to do that too. Lone Tree is a short drive from great camping in the Rocky Mountains as well. For any outdoor adventure you enjoy, you’ll find it here.
The Perks of the Big City with a Small Hometown Feel
With Denver only being 30 minutes away, residents of Lone Tree especially love the area for its close proximity to shopping, dining, sporting events and business. In fact, a lot of residents of Lone Tree commute to Denver as a way to enjoy city life while living in a small town. You can get all of the quiet you enjoy from your back porch while having the option to drive into the bustling, busy city.
Starting a Business Here Is Easy
With minimal competition compared to the likes of Denver, Boulder or Colorado Springs, starting a new business in Lone Tree is easy. Depending on your industry, you can find business spaces for rent and start attracting customers in no time. Of course, you’ll need a licensed Colorado business lawyer to properly establish your business as the right entity, but then it’s pretty easy to get going. And because we have such a community-driven climate, you’ll be sure to have new customers lining up at your door.
Real Estate Prices Are Friendly
While much of the United States has witnessed a tremendous boom in real estate prices, Lone Tree’s home prices have remained relative to the rest of Colorado. You may pay $100k or more over asking the closer you get to Denver, but will find sellers in Lone Tree are a bit more approachable. Lone Tree’s real estate offers a variety too; we have condos, single-family homes, and plenty of townhouses. Depending on your budget and the size of home you need, you’ll be sure to find an option in Lone Tree. You can also find very affordable prices on 55 and older homes for sale if that is the market you are in.
Transportation Is Abundant
Finally, one of the top reasons people love Lone Tree is the ease of transportation around the city. Lone Tree is located right along I-25, making it incredibly easy to get around Colorado whether you’re going north or south. We also have several lines of public transportation to help people get around town and of course, rideshare is available too.
So whether it’s the outdoors, the close proximity to downtown Denver, approachable real estate prices, or because you want to start a business in Denver, Lone Tree is a great place to consider.
