I just received orders to report to Fort Carson in 3 weeks. I am married so i will be living off post. I need a little help. Anyone have any recommendations for off post housing near the base in nice areas? This is my first duty assignment so I’m a bit lost.

Fountain is nice. Would stay away from the Black Forest and briargate area. Real expensive. There are some nice apartments near gate 2 and gate 3 area. I forget the name of one but it based on how much you make.

An E-4 would be able to afford housing in the towns of Security-Widefield, and Fountain, which aren't the best areas to live in. Generally, the further north you go from Carson, the better, but more expensive. I don't know if your spouse works. You should consider on post housing.

Why are you choosing to live off post? Fort Carson has some of the best military housing available in the army besides Hawaii and Fort Campbell. https://www.fortcarsonfamilyhomes.com/

Not if you are a junior enlisted soldier without a large family.
