It often snows more than in Denver and Colorado Springs and is a bit cooler in summer due to the higher elevation, and it is also quite windy year-round but the wind is only a small negative aspect when compared to the numerous positives.
Many residents, specifically teenagers, complain endlessly that there's "nothing to do" in Castle Rock because it's "boring." Let me tell you, Castle Rock is only boring if you make it boring. Hiking up the rock and taking in the view never gets old. Sure, there isn't much to do as far as man-made entertainment, but all that is only a 20-minute drive north to Lone Tree. For stuff do do, get off your lazy ass and explore the Colorado wilderness that is your backyard because you're lucky to have it compared to someone who lives in a REAL boring place like Kansas.
I love Castle Rock!
