Loveland has a Runza if that makes a difference.

Seriously, if he is going to commute every day to DIA, you might want to find something closer.

What is it about Loveland that appeals to you and what is your target price range for a rental? Longmont is similar to Loveland in that they both are cities with historic downtowns and where Loveland is close to Fort Collins, Longmont is close to Boulder. My sister lives in Loveland, but I think Longmont's downtown area is a little nicer. As Katiana mentioned already, Longmont is a diverse city and its residents range from immigrants who used to work at the turkey plant to white color corporate tech types. I would not classify Longmont as CO's answer to Compton. Longmont would still be a drive to DIA, but it's definitely closer than Loveland. For the commute, I'd definitely stay on the east side of town. There are some nice newer areas near 17th and Pace and further south off of 287 near Pike Rd. You might also want to look in Erie or the eastern part of Broomfield. That would get you further south and closer to the tollway (e-470).

My sarcasm was obviously not detected.
