FUnny, I thought the elitist attitude in Ft Collins was just coming from my 7 generations of family who think they own the town...it's nice to hear someone else is uncomfortable (when single) there also.

Least favorite is La Junta, a throw back from the 1950's in which single women doing anything alone are criminally suspect (yes, includes spending time in your own backyard after 7pm at night, going for walks, having any intellectual interests). And there is zero night life of any sort so you sit couped up in your 103 degree house from 7 - midnight. I went out once to the open swim during February at 7:30 pm and my neighbor was all in a nosey huff about what I could possibly be doing! Did I mention all the pesticides sprayed in the Arkansas Valley-no one forewarns that you may get doused with a lifetime of inhalants.
Most favorite, Boulder simply because it is pedestrian, has organic food, and is single and intellect tolerant..jobs are very difficult to land though, especially for the middle-aged..and if you purchased even 10-25 years ago, cost of living is very reasonable. It's not a perfect town, not many are.

My favorite is Denver, followed by Boulder. I love to be in the middle of things, people everywhere, liberal, and mostly pedestrian friendly (for Colorado anyway)

Least favorit city is the Springs, for all the reasons others have mentioned. I love the beauty of looking right at Pikes Peak, but it's not urban enough and the extreme religious organizations give me the creeps

^I get the same creepy feeling in Boulder. PPL in their mid 40's, dreds, holding hands in a drum circle dancing.

It's more about specific regions/areas then specific towns/cities for me. My least favorite are the Denver suburbs, the northeastern plains, and the close-in "mountain suburbs" off of I-70. I like most of the rest of the state (but haven't explored the far southeast).

I can't decide which I dislike worse.

Greeley- Smells like death, manure, stench, surrounded by wasteland polluted by oil wells. The attitude of the majority is sad, the war on drugs is alive and well, whatever hateful vile propaganda is in the media gets absorbed, worshiped and regurgitated by most of the Greeley population that speaks English. The rest of the illegal immigrant population just lives in rundown single wide trailers and saves money from slaughtering animals all day until they have enough to buy something back in Mexico.

Craig- A desolate meth head town in the high desert. Poverty, meth, welfare moms, white trash wanna be biker/cowboys. Where life is a slow rotting angry meth fueled existence.

Morrison, the tiny town of speeding tickets! Why are they *always* on the 285 near turkey creek canyon? It has ZERO to do with the town of Morrison. Serve and protect my a$$. It's a money making racket, no different than organized crime IMO.

Why does a town of 433 people need SIX full time police officers? Why does a town of 433 bring in almost a million dollars annually in traffic fines?

MORRISON, Colo. (CBS4) – Morrison, the tiny town at the foot of Red Rocks, has significantly beefed up its police department in recent years, going from one full-time officer to six full-time officers, leading to a dramatic upswing in the number of tickets written by its police department.

I forgot about Morrison. I hate that town.. It is just a gaint speed trap with a bunch of corrupt thug cops. I never have stopped and spent money and never will until they clean up their act.

They also roam out onto c-470 and collect money.
