I was among an earlier generation of young professionals flocking to Denver (mid 1990's with economy more early '90's recessionary than late '90's internet faux-boom). Without local connections, one definitely had to fight, scratch, and claw one's way in (I suspect that is still and will always be the case). But man oh man, what a great city in which to be young and (reasonably well) educated. There's no other city I'd trade with Denver to do it all over again. New recent college grad friends from all over the US/world. Fourteeners. Wash Park. Gov's Park. Don's Mixed Drinks (Club Tavern). Rockies games. Cherry Creek bike path. The piano bar at Charlie Brown's. Everybody pulling their oxygen cannisters on Colfax. Bluebird Theater. City Park as an overlooked treasure. Carmine's on Penn. St. Mark's. Lodo emerging. Housing sufficiently affordable even a twenty-something professional can hope to own a modest place in a cool urban neighborhood (try that in most larger "hip" cities!). I've not lived in Denver for 10+ years but I can only imagine its even better now than it was back in the day for recently arrived younger transplants.

After everything that's happened to me this month, my "LA Privileges" have been revoked.
Riding my bike in the snow last Sunday reaffirmed my confidence in living and working in this wonderful metro.

And yes, the rest of the state is absolutely amazing as well.

I moved here at 27 from back east. I came here primarily because I wanted to live in a city that had fun things to do but wasn't TOO big or overwhelming and because I already had a few friends living here. Denver is a great place to live and I enjoy it. I don't know if I'll stay here forever. Denver might just be a pit stop for me.

I kind of felt like this articles was a parody, not to be taken too seriously.
