Colorado Comments

If you can't find something fun to do in Denver you aren't trying. Whether clubs, art galleries/museums, or nature is your thing there is plenty to do. Getting around in Denver is easy -- there's no subway but Denver has one of the best public transport systems in the country. Of course going to ski can be crowded, but what do you expect when five of the top ten ski areas in the U.S. are all in the same area? There is good food, you just have to drive outside of downtown a little to get some of it.
Denver 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.
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.
It's certainly not a horrible place, but Denver 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.
I love the Denver area. There is such a variety of nature within a short distance. They have more than three hundred days of sun each year, and not much rain or snow. It's a great place for those who want to live more "green" and spiritual.
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!
