Read post #22, the one that he was replying to. The conversation was about metro area, not CSA.

Again, the point is it's wrong and misinformed. Denver is NOT 2,000,000 larger regardless of what statistic is used. There is only a 2.4 million difference between both state populations. Metro Colorado Springs alone is 678,000. Out.

I already pointed that out. I also pointed out that you tried to compare CSA to MSA numbers, Which is not the correct way to compare census designated areas.

Irrelevant. I already said this.

Who said anything about state population? Another irrelevant tangent

If anyone could give me some advise on which city to move to or has any recommendations on any other cities that would be great because I could go either way on both of them.
Back to the OP's question at hand. At your age, I'd think you would enjoy Denver more than SLC. Certainly a more vibrant nightlife and a lot of opportunities for recreation as well. Having lived in both, Salt Lake was fun to grow up in, especially living near the mountains in Olympus Hills. but I would think Denver is better suited to a young professional such as yourself. You really can't go wrong with either. Good luck, best wishes.

Why is everybody comparing the proximity of ski resorts, who cares?

I live in Salt Lake and there isn't much to do here. There're some nice hikes and ski resorts and that's it. They still talk about the Olympics they hosted 20 years ago... The city is dull and lacks culture. Mormons do rule the place and there's nothing wrong with that. It's their state.

We should compare Salt Lake to Colorado Springs, it's a very small city.

Denver wins hands down.


Economy = Denver
Urban life = Denver
Skyline = Denver
Nightlife = Denver
Culture = Denver
People = Denver
Weather/Air = Denver
Growth/opportunities = Denver

Not sure why you had to bump a thread that is 3 years old but I agree that Denver offers more amenities than Salt Lake City.
