Allenspark Profile


Overview

Allenspark is a tiny town located in the state of Colorado. With a population of 546 people and just one neighborhood, Allenspark is the 194th largest community in Colorado.

Housing costs in Allenspark are among some of the highest in the nation, although real estate prices here don't compare to real estate prices in the most expensive communities in Colorado.

Occupations and Workforce

Allenspark is neither predominantly blue-collar nor white-collar, instead having a mixed workforce of both blue-collar and white-collar jobs. Overall, Allenspark is a town of professionals, service providers, and construction workers and builders. There are especially a lot of people living in Allenspark who work in maintenance occupations (13.95%), food service (10.63%), and office and administrative support (10.30%).

Also of interest is that Allenspark has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.

Of important note, Allenspark is also a town of artists. Allenspark has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Allenspark’s character.

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 18.53% of the workforce. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce this is high compared to the rest of the county. These workers are often telecommuters who work in knowledge-based, white-collar professions. For example, Silicon Valley has large numbers of people who telecommute. Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.


Setting & Lifestyle

Another notable thing is that Allenspark is a major vacation destination. Much of the town’s population is seasonal: many people own second homes and only live there part-time, during the vacation season. The effect on the local economy is that many of the businesses are dependent on tourist dollars, and may operate only during the high season. As the vacation season ends, Allenspark’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.

Because of many things, Allenspark is a very good place for families to consider. With an enviable combination of good schools, low crime, college-educated neighbors who tend to support education because of their own experiences, and a high rate of home ownership in predominantly single-family properties, Allenspark really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Allenspark perfect? Of course not, and if you like frenetic nightlife, it will be far from your cup of tea. But overall this is a solid community, with many things to recommend it as a family-friendly place to live.

It is a fairly quiet town because there are relatively few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. (Children, for example, often can't help themselves from being noisy, and being parents ourselves, we know!) Allenspark has relatively few families with children living at home, and is quieter because of it. Renters and college students, for their own reasons, can also be noisy. Allenspark has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Allenspark than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Allenspark may be for you.

In Allenspark, however, the average commute to work is quite long. On average, people spend 30.83 minutes each day getting to work, which is significantly higher than the national average.

Being a small town, Allenspark does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
