You haven't been here long enough to be in any way qualified to make that judgment. The places you mention are not "suburbs" of Denver. Without doubt, the "hinterlands" of much of the Rocky Mountain region are within Denver's economic sphere and Denver is the trade center for a large geographic region of the Rocky Mountain West and Great Plains state. That does not make those places "suburbs." In fact, in rural areas of the Rocky Mountain West, particularly those away from the yuppie resorts, the culture and economics of those rural areas share very little in common with the metro areas. I should know, I lived in both, and I'm a native and resident of the Rocky Mountain region for over a half-century. I also study the demographics, economics, and sociology of the region as part of my work.

Good luck with the move. As a native NYer, LI has a terrible quality of life. Almost any place in the U.S. would be a better place to raise children.
Glenwood is a suburb of Grand Junction.

^^^ Not really. Glenwood Springs is a 90 minute drive along I-70 from Grand Junction. There's alot of empty space between the 2 towns.
