Will I like living in Denver?
Hi, my fiance and I are in the process of finding new jobs/apartment/life and were thinking about moving to Colorado. Currently, we are living in Dallas and desperately want to get out. I'll name the things we hate and like about Dallas so you can get an idea of the things we are looking for in a new home : Love: 1) Energy during football/basketball games. Very sports oriented 2) Pretty good economy and below average unemployment rates Hate: 1) Lack of good night life, very few bars and horrible dead downtown. 2) Lack of scenery. Buildings and highways get old very fast... 3) Lack of things to do! Seriously... our conversations on the weekends go something like this " So what do you want to do?" "Umm... we could go look at bestbuy again.... or go to the mall...." There isn't easy access to any good trails, no skiing, no snowboarding, no rockclimbing, good fishing is hours away, no ocean or beach, only one urban trail, camping spots are hours away, no hiking and no real backpacking opportunities. You get the jest. 4) Horrible weather. We have horrible hot humid summers with bugs and mosquitoes and mild winters. We had two feet of snow this year (very unusual) and the city shut down. 300,000 people lost electricity, restaurants shut down, stores and businesses shut down- it was ridiculous. 5) Very cosmopolitan and snobby. You won't have fun in this city unless you are rich and live in the nice area with nice cars and fancy homes. 6) Very conservative/close minded. So, based on my likes and dislikes does Denver seem like a place that might be a better fit? Keep in mind that we are not wealthy by any means so we need a place that isn't crazy expensive to live in. No kids for a while so school systems aren't an issue. Thanks!

You'll love it, great weather, Low humidity, 300+ days of sunshine . Most of the winter snow comes in March and April. It melts quickly because the sun it out the next day and the roads are dry. 5 major league sports teams. Yes, 5 .I'm counting Soccer too.

Well IMO I love Denver as for the outdoor things Denver is number 1. You could live here for years and never run out of new things to do in the mountains and they are a very short commute away. You have it all there! and we have all four seasons and each one is breathtaking. People are very friendly here for the most... More

im going to disagree and say denver does not have 4 seasons, not like the north east. Denver is definently different than dallas but it depends what u are looking for. Besides Denver and the few smaller cities close to it, you have to travel a long way to get to another big city. If you can deal with that then ur... More
