And for pointing out the truth as well as your mistake you suggest that I need to grow up?
Also I never said that Denver wasn't flat in the way you view it, and again not everyone thinks water is beautiful, again dude that's you thinking you're opinions are facts (get it?). Which again makes no sense. And yes there are a good amount of trees but that doesn't matter because it's all opinions. You're cocky arrogant attitude is not needed.

Honolulu is easily the most gorgeous major city IMO, but how about it's smaller cousin, Hilo on the big island? Hard to overlook with Mauna Kea in the background, it's cozy store fronts, and Hilo bay, though it's relatively small by the rest of the USA's standards, it's the 2nd biggest metro area in the state of HI. I absolutely love Hilo.

I live in Denver, and I'm a bit surprised that so many people name it as "most beautiful city in the country." Honestly, it's not even the most beautiful city in Colorado. Not even the most beautiful on the front range of Colorado. That would be Colorado Springs. Or Boulder. Even Fort Collins and Longmont are more beautiful. If you count small mountain Cities like Aspen, Vail, Telluride, Steamboat, Durango... well you get the picture.

Of course, compared against other major cities in the country, then perhaps it's in the top 10. But even there, I'd have to agree with other posters that the west coast cities like SF and Portland are more beautiful IF all you count is the parts within city limits. Plus, Denver (and Colorado) don't have water of any sort so that's a missing element. If you count Denver's Rocky Mountain backyard, say, within a 50 miles of the city, I don't think there's many cities that can match that. No other major city has the continental divide in its backyard like Denver does. But in Denver itself, it's a little bit too far away from its mountain backdrop to make the upper cut.

Not that I don't like the city, don't get me wrong. Lots of people move to more photogenic Colorado cities, (i.e., Colorado Springs, Boulder) and then figure out that Denver has a lot more to offer than those cities in other departments. But on sheer photogenic value within city limits, Denver isn't the best.

So let's see, Denver isn't flat and Seattle is? This is pretty funny.

I said Seattle isn't flat and named the hills within the City. And you suggest that I'm offering opinions?

Denver is like KC? Wow how terribly ignorant...

I live downtown and can see the snowy white mountains as we speak.


Dever is practically identical to KC w/out the mountains. Granted, Denver is definitely better
