Columbus, OHIO.

I think a lot of people who voted in this poll really have no idea how nice Columbus, OH really is.

I think Columbus suffers from being in Ohio--so a lot of people assume it's just another bland, dumpy rustbelt town. It is a lot nicer than people think. I'm just not sure if it's any better than Denver.

I would say Denver may be nicer, but I would choose to live in a suburb of Columbus and visit Denver for vacation if that makes sense.

makes sense to me; I'd much rather live in Ohio's state capital (If I didn't live in Columbus, IN...) I like Denver, and it's a great place to visit. But I'd never live there.

If the job markets are close in which they are I would go to Denver even though i am living here in Columbus. Denver has much more to offer, seems more innovative, and also more sunshine, just don't care for the feet of snow though. I also think Denver is more beautiful and more of a transportation hub than Columbus. Columbus is dreary and rainy a lot, but would say it is warmer and probably and I am saying a big probably more diverse.

Default Up.

Denver. Columbus wouldn't even be the first city in Ohio I would choose to live in. I'm not into skiing much but it's nice to have the option close at hand. It'd be nice to have all five major sports represented locally. Plus I just think the area is prettier in Colorado and I think the culture/nightlife is generally superior there too.

Definitely Columbus. The economy is a little better than Columbus in Denver other than that the only thing that Denver has over Columbus is better scenery and the mountains.

Denver is sooo isolated however. Columbus is close to Cleveland, Cincinnati, Indy, Detroit, Pittsburgh, and not too far from Atlanta and Chicago or New York City. Denver is just far far away from any other major city.

Also, except for the higher Hispanic population Columbus is more diverse than Denver and Ohio State blows away University of Colorado.

Denver has superior transit to Columbus but Columbus as whole is more urban than Denver.

Alot of people that do not know Columbus assume it's a typical rust belt city but what they don't know is it's totally different. It's modern, clean with a strong diverse economy.

Denver definitely has more over Columbus than scenery and transit. And in what way is Columbus more urban than Denver? Being close to other cities also don't make a city better when discussing two cities. I notice people resort to that a lot when discussing Denver, just because it's an obvious disadvange the city has.
