I just wanted to make a poll, to see which states regular posters on the C. Springs sub-forum are from. Also how do you like it compared to your hometown.

For me, I'm from the Cleveland area. Moved out here when I was 13 in 2005, so been living here for almost 7 years now. Like it out here more than back in Cleveland. Nicer weather, more laid back, nicer scenery, better oppurtunties. All of that on top of other things, imo.

Raised in Palmyra, NY (near Rochester), after college went to teach in the Maryland and then Virginia suburbs of Washington, D.C. After retirement moved to Thailand for almost 2 years. And now here in COS for the past 18 months.

I can't say which I prefer -- the D.C. area, Bangkok, or here...but I know I couldn't go back to living in a small town like my home town, and although I loved living in Bangkok, several aspects of life there got uncertain and hence, uncomfortable.

Denver native. Lived in the metro area for 40 years before moving to COS in January, 2000. I like it down here and don't have any desire to move back. IMO, the Springs media tend to ignore anything north of Monument Hill and in Denver the same applies to this part of the state. To me, that seems to give each area its own distinctive "feel" or "vibe". Hard to put into words, but living in Colorado Springs vs. Denver is almost like living in another state. Maybe someone can relate to what I'm saying.

I wish there was more communication in the news about what's going on all through the Front Range. I find the bubble is annoying.

I'm from Pennsylvania, spent some years in Olympia, WA and a bunch of years in Cleveland.

Probably none. I imagine the OP was just curious. I'm interested to know how CoS area stacks up in people's opinions to other places...even if the "natives" aren't interested in such comparisons. "We don't care how you do it back in NEW YORK CITY!!" LOL I love it.

I am so into letting myself be shaped in positive ways by the places I've lived. Northern Virginia gave me the ability to see and speak the truth, even if it's not pretty. Ohio made a survivor out of me. Iowa gave me common sense and taught me the importance of being NICE. (I never smiled so much at strangers until I left the East Coast.) Olympia has given me the gift of some awesome performing arts experiences, and taught me how to appreciate sunshine (I'll never take it for granted again.)

For the gift of getting to live places just long enough to properly make their acquaintance I could not be anything better than an Army spouse. I can't wait to experience Colorado, I've never even been to any of the Southwest states yet.

I grew up in central Ohio, but spent some years in Southern California before I moved to Colorado.

Try to experience as much of it as reasonably possible. Unlike anywhere else, in a "vastly better" sense, in my personal opinion. The opera in Santa Fe may be the most amazing visual/musical combo experience on earth. At least, in my limited American-West-centric opinion.
