In Colorado, there live the nastiest people I've ever met. In
area, the infrastructure is so poor that it feels far more crowded than it should. There are lots of California transplants, who are so self-absorbed and rude! Traffic is constantly jammed, all night and day. There are no back roads and almost every driver is on a cellphone. They have a sky-high number of auto accidents and sky-high insurance rates. Public transportation is no gem, either -- overcrowded, filthy buses, and trains, hour-long delays and often no vehicle arrives at all! It's definitely a miserable experience. Move here if you want, I'll be gone soon!
I don't own a car.
It's certainly not a horrible place, but
is relatively boring unless you're an outdoorist who likes hiking, biking, or skiing. Perhaps the biggest deal breaker for me is that culture and diversity are seriously lacking here. In fact, most places I go, I am the only person of color in the room usually! That gets old after awhile. I'm packing my bags and leaving early next year and I won't be looking back either.
was nice thirty years ago, but I recently visited and was disgusted by the way they have massacred the country side with cookie-cutter condos to accommodate all of the transplants from California who have brought their own way of doing things. My parents and brother have moved back out there (from greater Boston). The people are very different from the traditional values I am used to. It's too bad. I liked it there before all of California moved there and ruined it for all the locals and others from other areas of the country looking for a better life and to escape exactly what Colorado has become.
I've lived here all of my life and I should've left years and years ago. Most people who hate
are right about the people. No wonder I was bullied in high school. Now that I'm older, I'm dealing with self-serving, unfriendly snobs everywhere. As long as I've lived here, I've always had trouble making friends. It seems if you don't fit in you're out of luck.
is amazing! there is so much to do here if you try and look. It is no New York or L.A. so if you are looking for the really big city it's not here. The night life is great downtown, you can walk to all the bars. Everyone from Colorado is really friendly, it is a really clean city and if you know how to get around you can avoid all traffic, which is only in the morning or evening. I love it and am going to move here! Also the skiing is amazing and the mountains aren't in the city you have to drive to them so if you drive on the weekend there is a good chance you will hit traffic -- leave early or late to avoid it.
