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.
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.
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,
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 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.
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.
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.
