Seems like we may have scared off the OP with all our nit picking and bickering. With the recent Centura Health announcement and the expansion of UC Health facilities, I'd think healthcare employment in the area is only on the rise and will continue to do so for some time to come.

Funny how people who live in one town so many years think it is so great, that others who may have more to compare it to do not. Amazing how one opinion shakes everyone up so much. And one wrong word in someone's opinion or something you don't agree with is wrong with no questions asked of what one means. Sad enough this country has gotten that way, but to see it in a forum is very disappointing. The good old days are certainly gone for good.
Well said. These forums are often populated by small groups that arenít fond of other opinions.

You should try the California forum. Talk about bickering and angry (although most of that is stimulated by a few bitter posters). I feel like I need a shower after reading through that mess. Only so much anger and judgemental attitude you can take.

And as an observation, Iíve found that the boards with the most liberal posters (ie california) tend to be the most negative. This board is actually quite pleasant to read, and you guys tend to be downright helpful and positive to each other. In reading the forums of a variety of regions on here there seems to be a direct correlation in type of population to online negativity.

I'm from back east too and I'd have never thought you could get more for your money back east, BUT YOU SURE CAN, that's where I'm headed as soon as winter is done.
Of course you can get more for your money back east, hell in Ohio you can buy a house for less than a used BMW, but it sure as heck isn't because people want to live there.

Just considering my options. Thinking about moving there next year. I heard good and so-so things about this area. Please let me know. Positive inputs please!! Thanks.
Anything fun to do out there for kids and families?
oh yeah tons! esp if they are outdoorsy

What areas to move to?
Powers is a nice area, but anything north COS is all nice, less traffic as well. A little more costly though

Is this city worth moving to?
Depends on your interest. For me it was though due to my passion being motorsports. Bunch of OHV trails. However I probably wont retire here. Maybe in a desert place like Arizona, New Mexico. I never had any intentions of moving here. I was just recruited out of college and im not going to say no on a good paying job.

How's the weather out there?
bipolar. Sometimes hot, sometimes cold. Sometimes it wont snow for amonth, sometimes it will snow the next day and be 60 degrees the following.

Are the people snobby? Because no one does not have tine for that b/s!!!
When I first moved here, not at all. But now seeing more and more of this as people continue to flock here.

Your post is a bit brief and asking for some wide sweeping generalizations. Since we have no clue about you, giving us more details around your want to have, must have, wont tolerate as well as preferred activities, expectations, where you are coming from can give us a better chance of helping you know if this would work well for your family as well as give you some compare/contrast to where you are coming from. Half the people in Cos in particular and CO in general are from somewhere else. Odds are pretty good someone can give you a pretty direct comparison.
Reasonable informative post.
