I really love Colorado (beauty, weather, etc.) and want to move there, but I learn there are very few Asian people there. There are too many Colorado cities with at least 90% white. I would be scared. I am Chinese, and I like to know which Colorado cities have the most Asian people, or are the most Asian-people friendly.

How is the interracial communication between White and Asian overall in Colorado?

Any help given will be appreciated.

I don't know that there is a significant Asian population anywhere in CO. That said I've never heard any overt racism toward Asians since I moved here, although I have heard some toward Blacks and Hispanics.

Fort Collins has a smattering but from talking to a few it seems many are students or grad students/TAs maybe.

I see Asians on a regular basis all over the Westside of Denver. It is no Sunnyvale or Fremont, CA so don't expect to walk into Borders and see nothing but Asian kids.

There are interracial couples of every combination in and around Denver, I would say people here are very tolerant or just don't care as along as you are friendly.

If you are looking for towns with majority Asians then you'd be better off in California.

Westminster, CO has 5.48% Asian, most I found, according to Wikipedia. That's fair enough for me and I will feel comfortable. Can anyone confirm (visited) if you do indeed see more Asian people in Westminster than others?

Pretty much the entire Federal Blvd corridor from Westminster down to SW Denver has a notable Vietnamese population.

There's a noticeable Korean population in SW Aurora (Parker Rd, Havana, etc).

I honestly don't think you'd have a problem anywhere in CO.

Aurora, by far.

Aurora, CO / Iliff Ave -- PHOTO TOUR

Vegas is right -- Aurora is likely your best for a demographic Asian cluster in the Metro Area. The South Federal Vietnamese cluster makes for great shopping and restaurants, but it's a bit of dodgy area (not because of the Vietnamese, probably).

Where you need to look is anywhere within the Cherry Creek School District in Aurora. Why there? Most Asians that I know made a bee-line to Aurora because they wanted the Cherry Creek School District and a relatively easy commute to their DTC jobs. The more expensive parts of the Cherry Creek School District to the west are a bit out of the price range of most, so that's why many Asians settle on Aurora, where housing is affordable.

Of course, like anyone, a lot of this depends on your job situation. If you're working up north or in Boulder, then you need to look up that way because Aurora will not be commutable to jobs up there. Westminster would be a good choice in that case.

I have noticed quite a few more Asians in Boulder than anywhere else in this state. I live in Fort Collins and I maybe have seen 10 Asians in the five months I've lived here.

I think that it is somewhat of a positive that you do not see racial segregation that much in this state. Sure, there are tons and tons of whites here, but Hispanics, blacks, and Asians are pretty much integrated into communities here.

One of the things I love about Colorado so far...very balanced. I hate to say it: but it is Cali-lite, done right. Please don't hurt me for saying that lol.

I Understand. I moved to Vegas from Southern Cali and I had no idea so many people live here from Cali. I'm ready to leave for that reason alone!!To the OP, if you are that concerned about having a flock of Asians, by all means, stay in California or move to Seattle.
