Noo! Don't judge the suburbs by those cities! I dislike all of those suburbs except Littleton.
Centinnial, Southern Aurora, Ken Caryl, Cherry Hills Village,Greenwood Village,Parker...etc, are all much nicer places.

LOL Centennial, Ken Caryl, and Parker are some of the worst culprits for the things I mentioned earlier.

Well Parker and Centennial, for one is nothing but tract homes and strip malls (in other words generic suburbia at it's worst). There isn't even a real downtown area to give it a sense of history/place like there is in Golden, Arvada, or Littleton.

It's funny that you bring Chicago up, because you pictures of Edina and White Bear Lake, MN remind me of some of the Chicago suburbs like Mount Prospect, Arlington Heights, Glenview etc. in that area.

For me it is, but whatever.

Different strokes, for different folks.

Both are great, but I've always found Minneapolis to be the more fun, interesting, and enriching city of the two. However if I were to live in one of them, I would pick Denver because it has a great weather and it offers most of what I like about Minneapolis. As a place to visit though, I'd pick Minneapolis.

What is the crime like in Denver vs Minneapolis? I hear there are lots of gangs in Denver. Is Denver more dangerous then Minneapolis?

Yeah Denver does have its gangs. A couple of days ago at Jazz in the Park, A police officer just got shot and killed for breakin up a fight (She came from Detroit to). It all depends where you live. If you want hood go down to 5 points, east colfax, northern aurora, montebello, north parkhill, green valley. I live in southern aurora (Smoky hill area) and ive seen everything from being shot at to my friend gettin jumped.... Denver is just like any other city, it does have its segregation, not to a extremely like many other cities but it does. Blacks live on the east mostly commonly, Latinos live on the west generally speaking.
