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
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
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.
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.
is a large city with lots to do. But you're not going to ski here. You have to drive to the mountains to do that. There too many people there already.
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.
in 1999! Went there for a 10 day ski trip and stayed 4 months. What an awsome spot. So much to see and do. Plenty of outdoor life, skiing in winter, mountain biking, hiking, frisbee golf in summer. The Glenwood Springs Hostel is great with all the assistance you need and a wonderful atmosphere. A definate hotspot!
