About Elizabeth

Just 40 miles from Denver, Elizabeth, CO is the perfect spot for those seeking the employment opportunities of a major city but who long fora quieter life in a small town. Elizabeth offers the best of both worlds. Today, sub-divisions dot the countryside and Spring Valley Golf Course fairways lie between farm plots. But, the culture of this hardworking ranch community remains unchanged.
