Technically Dallas/Denver are blood brothers or something of that sort.
Denver does look like a Dallas with Mountains.

I live close to Denver, I love Colorado, its so beautiful here.
I once moved to Dallas to live with my mom..sorry to say but I hated it,
I only lasted 3 months and came back home to Denver, When I seen those Rocky Mountains like a big arm embracing me I knew I was home.
The people are much friendlier here in Colorado, We have much more here to offer in outdoor activities, I do have to say it was cheaper to live in Dallas tho than Denver. People seemed more happy here In Denver than they did in Dallas. Our culture is rich and we have different cultures that have community events.
Denver is the best place to live

Im with OmShahi, what makes DFW great is both Dallas and Fort Worth. Its what is special about the area.

It's actually mostly concrete (Dallas).

You seem to like Texas a lot, I couldn't help but notice.

Why is it that you have a liking for Texas? I am just curious, I like to know peoples reasoning's. If you don't mind me asking that is.

Dallas just seems like a hot Cowboy town ;-), while Denver has the rockies and a better urban centre.
