I miss Boulder, the mountains and the interesting weather patterns.


I do not miss the isolation, sprawl/motonomy (of Denver metro) and intense dryness.

I know they say that all of California is moving there, but it sure seems to me to be DC!
I'm sure jazzlover is going to be happy about this new development.

And for Broncos fans/CO transplants in D.C., there is the Cleveland Park Bar. Broncos represent very well nationwide.

I moved to Denver from VA and am looking to move back one day soon. I like Denver a lot, but I do miss the faster pace sometimes and I miss being able to do weekend trips to other cities. It's really isolated out here. I've met people from all over the country out here, it seems to be a really popular place for transplants.

Spent the first 17 years of my life in VA and it will always feel like home. Lived in Manassas, Woodbridge (now called "Hoodbridge" by a high school pal of mine), Dale City, Dumfries and Fredericksburg. I still visit whenever I can, and lately I've got a number of friends in Richmond to try and get out to see in addition to the family in Fredericksburg.

I don't miss DC. I do miss the caverns (Luray and Shenandoah) and the more green and forested landscape and gentler mountains. I miss fireflies. I miss being able to go to the Outer Banks on vacation without flying across the country first. I miss the cicadas and the humidity (positives for me, negatives for some.) I dislike the dryness here. I don't fit exactly well with the "dogs an' guns" culture but I'm easygoing enough to be alright. Never been particularly interested in the "Wild West" stuff, and I don't care who is a "native." BUT I'll say that I really hated these things about VA and am glad to not deal with 'em places further west I've lived, including CO: The traffic, the lack of casual friendliness often present, and that weird thing about VA where people think it's OK to not show up for plans and not call or anything. Flakiness. People from the midwest to the west coast seem to have more courtesy in some ways towards others.

Nice! I have an old college friend who is from the D.C. region as well. When we moved here from Monterey, I considered Woodbridge because I would have been commuting opposite the traffic patterns. (I'm stationed on MCB Quantico.) My friend told me, "Oh, no, no, no! Don't move in to Hoodbridge!" I took her advice. Besides, the housing market here in Fredericksburg is so much more affordable. The house we just bought would probably cost 50% more if it were north of the base. It would probably cost twice as much if it were inside the beltway.

Born in Carson, raised in Bethesda... but the Western Slope is the place for me.

I too have noticed a good deal of DC area transplants in Colorado. Much more than further west in NV and CA.

HTTR always! Will never leave that behind.
