Colorado Comments

There's too many suburbs and too many cops for each one -- it's a great city to get a traffic ticket. Furthermore, the people are getting dryer socially everyday. Job growth is pitiful and many companies are leaving the state. I should be next to the leave the state. Moving to another town in Colorado would be worse. Due to the economy, Denver seems like it's tilting back to having the cow town reputation it shed many years ago and it's unfortunate. And now the haves and have-nots are widening everyday here. The Texans moving here everyday is another story.
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'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 one of the coolest cities I've ever lived in, although I haven't lived in many other large cities. What's awesome about it though, is its proximity to so many beautiful pristine places. There is so much to do right close to Denver -- they have some of the best mountain and road biking, skiing of course, awesome rivers for rafting and kayaking, and a bazillion trails to explore.
I visited Denver 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.
The people in Denver are rude, self absorbed snobs! However, I have noticed that the Denver natives are actually very friendly and polite. Upon further research, I found that the majority of the rude and snobby people are actually from other places.
