Depends on what you want. Mountains? Foothills? Plains? Big house? Small house? Land? Budget? Need to commute to a job?

Best if you don't need a job: Telluride
Best if you do need a job: Take your pick of the large, growing, sprawling front rage
Worst: Eastern side of the state. Denver is in the ugly part of the state, but you wouldn't knwo it because it is a city now. Go any further east, and it gets pretty barron.

I'm not from Colorado, but I've spent nearly 6 months there total on vacation. Right now I'm looking a Buena Vista. It was my first choice way back in 2004 when I 1st thought of getting away from Chicago. I deliver pizza and may not have the need for a big income. I doubt I would ever fit back into an office setting.

I've mentioned it before, and get tired of dwelling on it, I'm the plaintiff against the City of Chicago and Cook County for a false arrest and imprisonment I suffered through in 2003. Yes I have a lawyer now, he's been on the case since September 2007, and this baby is about to be wrapped up in arbitration. It was going to be this month, but the hearing has been continued to August. Don't get me wrong. I am a great guy maybe even too laid back for California.

As for your question, it's a toss up without more information. Even though I'm tired of the city, I would have to say the best place to start is Denver. A large city offers all kind of employment opportunities, in just about every field. The drawback it the maddening crowds. Don't get me wrong, I love Denver, and I was able to get a job in the 80's when I was at the Good Samaritan House downtown through Kelly Services loading trucks.

Two weeks later my parents tracked me down through one of the homeless shelters and told me a company was looking for me in Chicago. They had a job for me. Needless to say I spent the next 12 years working in an office. When I got tired of it, I set out on my own and started delivering pizza. Believe it or not, I made more money driving than the $12/hr day job.

The worst place would be in a town of 150 far out from a large populated area. You would be in steep competition with the locals even for the cashiers job at the Kum n Go. That is a chain out there right?

Denver would be the more secure route in my opinion.

Have a great day!

William

We are thanking of moving to the Denver area from Charlotte NC.
We won’t to be as close to the mountains as we can and still work in Denver. What would be a good area to start looking for a house to rent for under $1100.00 a month?

Where, in Denver, will you be working?

In the foothills, is a possibilty, or the western suburbs like Littleton, Arvada, Lakewood & Golden.

I'm sorry, but this has got to be the worst thread to bump up and in the wrong sub-forum for what you're asking.

Go to the Denver sub forum and go to MFBE's link page here and look up the section "Rentals". If you don't find your info there or have other questions or even learn a thing or two about the topic, you can start a new thread in the Denver subforum. That way, you'll be conversing with Denver people. Many Denver posters may never see this thread and all will have no idea you've posted a question about Where to Rent in the Denver Metro Area unless they stumble on it by chance.

Most people will think you're commenting on the Best and Worst places to live in Colorado.

Add: Oh, well looky there. I see you posted the exact same post in the Good places to live/avoid in Denver, but like this one, it's still not in the Denver subforum You posted a few back in November in the Denver sub though. Hmmm...
