How We Determined The Largest Cities In Colorado

We've been ranking and dissecting cities in the Centennial State for over 4 years now -- making this actually the fourth time we've run the numbers. We always use the best data, the US Census. In this case, that means we are using the 2013-2017 American Community Survey.

It what is probably the most simple analysis we run each year, we ranked every place in Colorado from biggest to smallest. The biggest city this year? That would be Denver.

The smallest? Manassa, although there are places smaller than 1,000 people not listed here, so keep that in mind as we take a look at the top ten.

Review Of Colorado Springs by HomeSnacks User

I love Colorado Springs. My son and his family live there and I visit four times each year. I don't like winter, but in the summer we can hike and visit the zoos. Their neighborhood is at the bottom of a mountain, so there is plenty of wildlife.

I love the Garden of the Gods. And I kissed a giraffe at the zoo! Both so much fun.
