Photos: Three Colorado places in Money's top 25 best small towns list
Money Magazine has just released its list of the fifty best small towns in America -- places that "are not only thriving economically," but have "also got all you could want in a place to raise a family: plenty of green space, good schools, and a strong sense of community." And three Colorado communities made the top 25, with one landing at number two. Look below for the countdown, complete with photos of assorted gems and data about population and median home prices, just in case you'd like to pull up stakes.
