Colorado Comments

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.
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 a growing city. Progression with almost everything can be seen. It's a safe place compared to other large U.S. cities. The vibe is right in the middle, nothing extreme on either side. Some really cool stuff to find here but you have to look.
Something stinks in this city, and I can put my finger right on it. I've lived in a lot of places and have traveled around quite a bit. The people here are what ruined Denver for me -- if you read anything about Denver on the internet, you'll no doubt see something along the lines of, "The people here suck; they are rude, self-absorbed, and unfriendly." I came to Denver an unbiased, friendly, late twenties guy who has never had a problem meeting people or making friends. Long story short, I've been here three years and can't wait to leave.
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.
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.
