Nice location if you feel the need to escape quickly - which you may - and decent amenities. It made the top-five best places to live by Forbes magazine a few years ago. Worth a look if IV-injected suburbia is your thing.
I disagree with the bold. There are plenty of SAHMs in Louisville; there are plenty of people out and about during the day.

I think you're referring to CNN Money Mag, not Forbes, not that either of them have that much cred, IMO.

And it tends to be more conservative than other cities in CO, but no more or no less republican conservative than Arizona cities.

If your looking to live in an area that is close to the city and the country side, than Brighton comes to mind of you want to live near Denver. Also, Superior or Louisville come to mind as well. They are very close to both Denver and Boulder and pretty much connect to both. However, if you want to live near CO Springs than you could pick a suburb such as Black Forest on the northern part of the Colorado Springs metro area, or Fountain on the southern end.

In Denver proper, you can do plenty. If you have enough days of vacation, you could do the Union Station, 16th Street Mall, Coors tour, Colorado history museum, Denver art museum, Colorado state capitol, Waterworld, etc. Another nice thing to do in Denver is the Santa Fe Art District. It has tons of Chicano art, but also much normal art as well. The Chicano art is amazing.

If you are planning on driving out of the Denver area, but still not driving too far, i would recommend other areas as well. Garden of the gods, Olympic Training center, Florissant Fossil beds monument, Rocky Mountain National Park, etc. You can also go visit Boulder.

If you want nice places to eat, there are many choices as well. Obviously Denver and all of CO has tons of Mexican restaurant (CO usually does New Mexican Cuisine like New Mexico and CA). If you want a few nice places to sit down and eat, i would say La Loma on 26th and Alcott in North Denver. Las Delicias on 19th and Pennsylvania in Uptown. La Cascada on 20th and Depew in Edgewater. If you want a quick place to get good food, i would say the ORIGINAL Chubby's on 38th and Lipan in North Denver. Bubba Chinos on 20th and Lamar in Edgewater or the locations on South Federal Blvd. Also, Santiagos on 6th and Santa Fe in original West Denver is good too.

Other great places to eat would be Pete's Gyros Place on Colfax and Detroit st, Buckhorn on 10th and Osage st, or Papa J's on 80th and Sheridan in Westminster is decent italian food.

Thats what i would recommend.
