As a prospective Colorado transplant, I ask you guys, in terms of the beauty of the surroundings , especially concerning how green it is on average, which town is better?

Based just on beauty of surroundings, I would say they're fairly similar ...

green as in low carbon footprint, or physically green?

Hmmm, they both can be pretty brown. The whole Front Range is very similar, with the exception of around Fort Collins/Wellington.

The geography of the Front Range can vary greatly. COS is in the foothills and hilly, and is snuggled right up against the mountains (or at least "The Mountain"). Denver is flat. Boulder is beautiful, but very flat too. If you hike up the Flatirons and look across is becomes apparent how flat it actually is. What makes Fort Collins different from the rest of the FR?

In terms of the beauty of the surroundings, I love Boulder but I'd have to give the edge to the view of Pikes Peak, its surrounding mountains and GotG in the Springs.

Would Fort Collins be a better choice?

It's hard to say what town would be the best choice without a little more information. Do you need a job, do you have a family, what else do you expect for amenities?

It's also massively more expensive to live in Boulder.

^^Not massively. Housing can be more. Everything else is about the same.
