Colorado Is Awesome. Denver Is Not. - 3/8/2015

I loved this place in the 80's when I was much younger. Today's Denver sucks in my opinion. And I want to give whatever credit may be due its population, but it just doesn't work for me any more. And the problem with Denver seems to be a very complicated one - one that may take years, even decades, to solve. My advice to anyone considering a move to Colorado is to avoid Denver at all costs - unless you have a ton of money that allows you to live above the rif-raf and nightmare that is metro-Denver. I do my best not to have racist affectations. The population of Denver is 40% Hispanic today. And it shows. It is impossible to escape the Hispanic and Mexican cultures in the city of Denver. They are the predominant races in the area. If I want to be that entrenched in the Hispanic culture I will travel to Mexico or Spain. Please don't go to Denver seeking enlightenment because the majority of the population is operating at very low energy levels. This place is BLEAK. It's a very old, run-down place and culture that seems to be teetering on the brink of spiritual bankruptcy. Maybe one day again Denver will soar. For now I would recommend living in any city or town 60 minutes or more from there in any direction - unless you're a Mexican or a Nazi. Colorado as a whole is a wonderful place, but Denver has definitely seen better days.

You get all 4 seasons but you are never torchered - 1/23/2015

Colorado overall is a beautiful state. Such a diversity of landscapes and the best sunsets you will ever see. Being central in the country makes trips anywhere else shorter and not as expensive. You can get direct flights just about anywhere, including London, Tokyo, Iceland and many other major cities. Colorado is going through a culture change and moving more toward the left of politics and culture. The only thing missing really is an ocean. I hate snow but it comes and then it goes the next day in many cases, unlike up north where it's on the ground for 4 months. I want to move somewhere warmer but I don't want to contend with humidity. Colorado is pretty dry and we are at a higher altitude. Folks who visit tend to get dried out and short of breath for the first week or so. I love going to lower altitude states and having so much more endurance. It's a great place to live but in 10 years it may have too many people because it's so nice.

Horrible - 1/14/2015

I spent 5 years living in Denver and moved there with the hopes of making it my permanent residence. I found so many issues wrong with the city, it's hard to choose where to begin. The People: Prior to moving, I read that people in Denver are very friendly. Wrong! Many "appear" to be friendly but that's as far as it goes. In 5 years, I managed to muster 2 solid friends and a lot full of acquaintances. I have met more people than not who conveniently make themselves unavailable to grab a drink or watch a game as friends would normally do, but were always around when they needed favors, and let me assure you, there were many. Many of the people I met from all professions and walks of life had alcohol problems, drug problems, and insecurity issues. Many I encountered appeared to be more of followers than leaders. Those cut from the same droopy, bland cloth that molded 20 and 30ish yuppies, hipsters, and trust fun baby douche bags. The same cloth that created yoga loving, dog walking, flip flop wearing, mustache sporting dickheads. The same dickheads who lack creativity and essentially try to follow anyone sporting a fad thinking it's unique, meanwhile a 100,000+ other idiots are following the same fad. These people lack culture. They lack a sense of creativity. They lack individualism. Their yes's and maybe's really mean no because instead of speaking their minds, they would rather rely on passive aggressiveness and linger in the non confrontational gray zone. Frustrating to say the very least. Workwise: Coming from the east coast, I hold myself to a certain expectation in the workplace. Denver, Colorado has absolutely no work ethic. At least from my 5 years of experience. The first year I spent out here, I worked for one douche bag that would spend a great deal of time talking the talk but lacking any type of ambition to actually grow his client list. When I pursued clients, instead of being gracious, he tried to steal them because in his words "he knew more than me". Yeah, tell that to the $0 in your bank account. Interviewing was just as bad, having come across many individuals who were greased into their jobs because of the overwhelming "good ole boy" nepotism out here. It's hard to land a job when you know more than the people interviewing you. It's even more difficult to show restraint knowing that these same people have this air about them, that they actually believe they deserve these positions. Of course, we can also talk about HR never even letting applicants know what their decision is, this is after going to the final round of interviewing. Really? Happened one too many times. Inside the workplace is just as bad. You encounter more of the same droops that were given positions based upon nepotism because again, Denver is overwhelmingly incestuous. These individuals never meet deadlines, usually consider Fridays a holiday, sleep walk Monday thru Thursday, and are so incompetent that even fucking up a cup of coffee isn't out of the question. In the 5 years here, I heard everything from you're discriminated against because "you're from the east coast, you should lose your Sopranoish, Brooklynish accent, people are intimidated by aggressive workstyle, so take it back a few notches, if you can't change your personality no one would hire you." Well ladies and gentlemen, I went into business for myself to avoid working under the douche bags. : ) My overall impression of this city is that if you're a hipster, yuppie, have no culture, no sense of individualism, don't like dogs but want one because everyone else has one, and like to look disheveled then Denver is the place for you. Personally, I piss on this city and all of the people that go with it. I'm happy I moved, have doubled my salary, and never have to question whether a maybe and yes really means no. Take it for what it's worth.

LOVE THE PLACE, HATE THE PEOPLE - 12/28/2014

Prior to moving to Denver I had never been stood up and I don't mean just on a date. Upon moving here I met lots of people who seemed friendly and open but in short order I found out they were friendly on the surface but had no depth or interest in depth of friendships or any other type of relationships. The first 5 yrs. here I cried probably every day because of being stood up either for an activity or a date. When asked why the person didn't show up OR CALL and cancel the response was always, I found something more interesting to do. Really???? How selfish are you all???? They are also quite thankless. Trying to get someone to say thank you is like pulling teeth! Dating has been a nightmare until I hired a professional matchmaker named Michele with Bon Jour Matchmaking to assist me in my choices. Thankfully she is very discriminating in who she works with so I am more able to avoid this other scenario. The weather is great. Cannot complain about that. Almost always sunny, dry so it's always a good hair day, rarely rains or snows. I stayed because of the climate compared to where I moved from. So I've stayed and just accepted what I cannot change. Been here for 30 years!

Don't come here unless you plan to rot! - 12/27/2014

Mountains, valleys, zoos? Yeah that is definitely where I want to go in extreme snow and in a area where I can hardly breathe. I spent 20 years rotting in this mountain. HORRIBLE schools to say the least. When we moved to Lubbock, whose schools aren't even ranked high, my son found himself studying until midnight most days and trying to cram courses to get into a good college. Courses are not offered in Denver public schools. Try calling the cops to see if they can help you find missing children(useless). Home invasions, robberies, rape like living in a third world country unless you have an income of over 150K a year, life will be miserable here. It's the land of minimum wage opportunity. HIGH, HIGH sales tax of really nearer to 8% on everything.

Multimodal transit falls short in Denver - 6/29/2014

Denver is in a unique position to lead the mountain west region in developing multimodal transportation. The new light rail system is a true gem, but the hype around multimodal transit misses the point. Combined with good feeder bus service and adequate parking, it can be a great way to solve many of our urban transportation issues, as more people move to metro areas. Denver has also pushed to increase bicycle and foot traffic by expanding a bike share program and zone for high density development, as well as transit oriented development around transportation centers. It falls short, however, in the way Denver is implementing policies which force people to use public transit by reducing the requirements to provide adequate parking in high density areas, and reducing bus routes to encourage light rail use. Suburban bus routes have been reduced in favor of bus feeder routes to the light rail stations, diminishing convenient and timely bus service in and around the suburbs. The reduction of available parking in high density developments or transit hubs creates a traffic congestion nightmare as people who drive instead of bike or walk to a location because they are constrained by time, distance, or weather (especially in winter) now clog the streets looking for a parking space. Although moving in the right direction, Denver has fallen short in making multimodal transit convenient, which is the key to it's success.

Climate - 6/11/2014

THe climate is nice in Denver. Warm in the summer-mid90's as a high and sometimes very cold in the winter. It can get down to 0 to 20 degrees in the winter. We've been getting part of the global warming and the winters have been milder over the last few years.

Denver: Home of the Rude & Ugly - 6/3/2014

Denver, you suck. Bad wages. Unfriendly, rude, snobby, yuppy, terrible people. Rents approaching the cost of LA. Traffic. Vehicle registration. Mountain men. Hypoxic population. Zero fashion sense. So happy Denver lost the Super Bowl - couldn't have happened to a more deserving city! Can't wait to leave!

What is the smoking situation really like in Denve - 5/26/2014

Hello Denver, I've been living in Portland Oregon for the last 10 years and am ready for some nice dry and sunny weather. I have asthma and I don't want to be around people smoking anything. I will be living in an apartment. I currently live in a smoke-free apartment complex. With Colorado's new smoking laws are all of my neighbors going to be smoking pot? Thanks for your comments.

Here's the deal about the mile high climate - 5/18/2014

I grew up in Boulder, not far from Denver: EVERYONE I know in Colorado will brag to you about their weather, climate. Most of those same people originate (or their families) come from the Midwest. And yes, relative to the Midwest, Colorado weather is overall superior. Especially the winters. Here is where the hype needs to end though: Colorado is a high, and dry desert climate. So you get extreme colds in the winter, and it can get very hot in the summer. It seems like forest fire season has been getting longer each year. Its dry, so get used to dry skin and chapped lips in the winter. Its common to get a blizzard each year in the month of May... When storms roll in, in the spring, it can be insanely windy (talking 40+ MPH sustained). No one ever called CO weather not interesting. Now that I reside in a more temperate climate along the West Coast, I don't miss the CO weather. Yes, Denver gets 300+ days of sunshine a year, but you pay a price for it...... Basically, I'd prefer just about any micro climate from San Diego (duh) along the coast all the way up to Seattle (not kidding).

Strange here in Denver - 2/22/2014

Overall, the people here are more helpful and kind than the northeast. But so many people here are spineless wimps. People are so hesitant and afraid to assert themselves. Thus, it seems as though they lack social skills. I hate to generalize but for the most part, this is my observation. People are hard to get to know because they are so kept to themselves. You can talk to strangers in public in Boston but not in Denver. The guys that aren't roughnecks are total sissies for the most part. Grow a pair Denver. The traffic here isn't bad compared to most cities(although the city is trying to make it worse), the crime is fairly low, it is pretty clean, climate is awesome, public transportation is bad unless you live and work right in Denver, and something to do for everyone. If ou are looking for a big city vibe, don't come here. It is a major city but medium in size. Downtown is small compared to Boston or San Francisco but is getting bigger in a very RAPID way. There is an agenda behind it but that is another story. You can wear rival sports team gear here and people won't attack you for it like they do in some places. As far as food goes, it isn't NYC, but if you look you can find good hole in the wall places. Locals seem to think that chain food is good and if you tell them about hole in the wall family places they act like you are weird. Sorry but Olive Garden is not my idea of good italian fare. Great mexican food here.

Why Live In Dever - 12/23/2013

I've lived in a suburb (Northglenn) just north of Denver for the last five years, and can't wait to move. Everything here is overpriced, homes, apartments, taxes, food, utilities, and there are high fees on everything. Colorado is the next California, possibly due to the many liberals which have moved here from California and other liberal heavy states which are presently going bankrupt from liberal policies. The state and local governments here have there hand out every time you turn around. In Northglenn where I live, they have been very busy condemning small business owners so they can build denser commercial projects, which will provide more sales and property taxes. The politicians in Colorado are constantly trying to raise taxes and fees on everything they can. Another expense to consider is for Police enforcement, because the Police are relentless with traffic citations. I received a citation for making an illegal turn that I didn't make, which cost me $185. Don't even think that you can go to Court and beat it, because the Judges are intimately involved in the budgeting process and setting of fines. All they're concerned about is collecting money from you. There are a whole lot of illegal aliens and welfare scammers here, which you will be financing with your hard earned money. I'd recommend you avoid Colorado unless you're a liberal.
