Colorado Comments

In Colorado, there live the nastiest people I've ever met. In Denver 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!
Denver's a great city. It is pointedly not Chicago, New York, or San Francisco, but it has its own charm. Having lived in many world-class cities, Denver still ranks high in my book. Public transportation is a problem, but it's improving. The arts and dining scene hold their own, and the outdoors scene is terrific. My only problem with Denver is that it lacks an ocean (or any good body of water!).
Denver is fabulous if you enjoy a steep unemployment rate, relentless traffic congestion, cowtown ways, low paying jobs, outrageous housing prices, bland people, very racially divided attitudes/neighborhoods, and Anglo-dominated culture (no culture!).
Denver 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 hate Denver and can't wait to leave -- boring city, no nightlife, weird, socially retarded people, nothing to do! I am an outgoing, friendly person and I hate this city!
Denver 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.
