Hello from Ohio!

I'm a 23 year old female, soon-to-be college graduate and would like to relocate to Colorado!

I will be looking for work in my field of Interior Architecture/Design, so it will need to be somewhat close to the Denver area (I don't mind a 45 minute drive to work). I've visited the Breckenridge area and I loved the all the shops, restaurants, coffee shops, & bars all very close together. I'm looking for modern living apartments/condos, newer, but reasonably priced.

I will be moving out with my boyfriend who has a lab/great dane mix, so we would love to be close to walking trails/hiking.
We're looking for a younger, hip, safe area to make new friends and start a new chapter.

Any input would help!
Thank you

Any input/ideas would help!
Thank you
In order for us to help you with suggestions, we could use a little more information about you. Will you be looking for work? What is your budget for living? What is your definition of cute little towns? All of these things will help us to give you insightful responses.

It took me a minute to realize you edited your earlier post with a little more information. At first I thought, wow, I didn't read your post at all.

Breckenridge is beautiful, but it would be very difficult for you to make a living up there (although it seems like you realize that). There are several areas of Denver that come to mind. If you want to live in the city of Denver itself, check out these neighborhoods: Lower Highlands, Washington Park, Bonnie Brae and Platte Park. You may also like Littleton, specifically areas around Old Town Littleton. Also check out Golden. Not sure how hip it is, but there is a an Old Town area and the School of Mines is there, so a younger population exists. My friends love Golden! Of course, Boulder also comes to mind, but it can be really expensive. It really fits everything you are looking for though. You might also like Fort Collins if you can find work. It's a bit far for a commute to Denver though, IMO.

Honestly, I would focus on finding the job first and narrow your search based on that. I don't know specifically about your field, but in this economy I'd go where the job is.
