twelve years ago, and again two weeks ago. The city still left me with the same impression both times. It is boring, with not much to do unless you love winter activities, and it is in the middle of nowhere really. Relatively, it sucks. And it's not really so safe. People should not walk around Denver alone.
sucks so bad. I am a native and only lived here for three years and Denver sucks!
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.
so much. I visited my first time this summer with my uncle. There is so much to see and do! I would recommend at least seeing Rock Ridge Trail or Pike's Peak. The Garden of the Gods was a nice park. Casa Bonita is a fun place to eat. Bring the kids! Really there was nothing I didn't like. I'm going again and staying for a month -- can't hardly wait!
I currently live in
and moved from the West Coast. Denver does suck -- not much to do. You really can't ski because you need to sit in hours of traffic on I-70 and most people are extremely passive aggressive to a point of being scary. Denver is like one large social clique. It's like that little town from Deliverance, but with taller buildings.
sucks -- the people are rude, selfish, Stepford people, lazy, spiteful, non-helpful jerks. There's nothing to do here -- culture zero. It's the land of the chain restaurants. Even worse are the creeps that live in Douglas County. It's hell on earth except for shallow, empty, selfish takers who love to ski. East coast natives will want to put a gun to their heads living here.
