Seeing that plumbus posted his question two days ago and has never come back, we should all quit wasting our time speculating.

I'm still here but I have a life outside of an online forum thanks. I like the college town meets artsy chillness that is Boulder. I like Denver as well, fairly diverse but fairly educated. So upscale diverse areas I'm into. I'm not really into the racist ass small white suburbs anymore as I have much hatred of Minnesota where unless you look like the posterboy for Hitler youth you're not American.

Boulder is not really diverse but it is upscale which is what I suppose makes it so unaffordable. Can you define what you would consider to be affordable for you?

Pay for Boulder, or look at Fort Collins, Missoula, maybe Flagstaff.

You have answered your own question. Bigger cities that are progressive like Denver are diverse and well educated. The size of a city sometimes put off many people if they are looking for a smaller town. However, as in any large metro areas, you have small virtual small villages in many different distinct neighborhoods of different characteristics. These neighborhoods become your walkable areas and you tend to shop and recreate more in your neighborhood. Neigborhoods also create their own pride and have their own events. Your own neighborhood then becomes your own small town.

Denver has so many different neighborhoods that are built around different sites and have different histories. As you said, you like Denver then look over what Denver has to offer. We have neighborhoods that mimic suburbs; we have neighborhoods that have the artsy similarity of Boulder; we have quiet residential areas; we have areas that are more dense and vibrant.

Here is link to Denver neighborhoods

The paragraph I bolded above should be a sticky. This is so true, has been mentioned before, and seems to be dismissed easily. Choose wisely and you will have your own "small town." You are not going to live in the whole city, but can choose what to use.

Can't rep you again, livecontent.

The whole metro area is pretty non-diverse. Yes, there's a good percentage of Hispanic/Latino population, but it's still a sea of white around here. Boulder is about as diverse as Japan (slight exaggeration, but wow).

As of July 2015 98.5% of the population is ethnic Japanese, 0.5% Korean, 0.4% Chinese, others made up 0.6%
The Wiki

The racial makeup of Boulder was 88.0% White, 0.9% Black or African American, 0.4% Native American, 4.7% Asian, 0.1% Pacific Islander, 3.2% some other race, and 2.6% from two or more races. 8.7% of the population are Hispanic or Latino of any race
The Wiki

Only slight.
