Erie Named Fifth-Safest City!

Looking for a safe place to call home? You can stop right here!

The town of Erie has just been rated the fifth safest city in Colorado by the National Council for Home Safety and Security, something residents of this small town know as well as the experts!

Safety has always been an important consideration for home buyers. In the last year, with more civil unrest than civility in the nation’s cities, safety has become a top priority for many people hunting for a new home.

This isn’t the first time safety professionals have lauded Erie for its enviable low-crime rates. Last year alone, four other online security and safety resources, including SafeWise, Protection 1, Value Penguin and Credit Donkey, also named Erie among the safest cities to live in Colorado.

Small Town, Big Accolades

Erie was also named among the 10 Most Affordable Denver Suburbs by Movoto, one of the Best Places to Raise a Family by Wallet Hacks, second in Best Cities for Young Families by Apartment Advisor, and among the top Healthiest Housing Markets by SmartAsset.

That mountain of praise appeals to home buyers, as do the many exciting attractions and events that Erie hosts every year to encourage a sense of camaraderie and community.

SafeThe Erie Town Fair and Balloon Festival lures families with its carnival games, car show, local entertainment, craft and food vendors and hot air balloon-launch. (Mark your calendars – it’s coming soon!)

The Colorado Firecracker and the Colliers Hill-sponsored Eerie Erie races draw runners and joggers; the Miners’ Blast and Erie Brewfest attract festival-goers, and everybody turns out for the Country Christmas-Parade of Lights and Concerts in the Park!

There’s so much to recommend it; not only is Erie a safe, healthy, family-friendly city, it’s five minutes away from the amenity-rich master-planned community of Colliers Hill!
