Firstview is an unincorporated community in Cheyenne County, Colorado. It is on U.S. Highway 40; the nearest city is Cheyenne Wells. The geographic coordinates of Firstview are roughly the antipodes of the coordinates of Île Saint-Paul, a French island in the Indian Ocean. This island is one of only three land areas with antipodes in the contiguous United States.

The town was laid out in 1911. It was named for the spot where travelers got their first glimpse of Pikes Peak, 135 miles (217 km) to the west.
