Okay, so I'm originally from St. Louis and have been living in NYC since college. My family is moving to the Denver area, and I am thinking of joining them in the next year.

Can anyone tell me about the post-college, single scene in Colorado? I'm 26 and not planning on being married any time soon. I'd like to live in an area where there are still single folk in their mid-late 20s.

Any advice?

I lived in Vail for 2 yrs, mecca of single life, fun, adventurous crowds. I am pretty sure you know the answer to your question though, of course not everyone in their 20s is married. Unless you were only looking to live in Amish Country in Pennsylvania, I am pretty sure everywhere you will find single people, especially in major cities or big towns where big universities are located like Ft Collins, Denver, Boulder...
hope that helps

Where to Move- How in the world did you afford Vail in your mid 20's? That is great, but I am shocked it is so expensive up there. Maybe you worked at the ski resort?
Anywho-- I have heard dowtown Denver is pretty fun at night. However, I am an old fart (35) and have no first hand experience.

Being married is not bad at all... and I am 26!!

But I heard Denver is one of the top 10 cities for single folks.

Date away!

Bashep--
I worked at the ski resort after college, tons of people after college are there, it is a great young crowd...not too much white collar work though...but if you want to enjoy life for a few yrs, meet lots of great people, then a ski resort is a great place to go for a few yrs! I miss the fun years!!!!!!!

Denver area will be great for you...Colorado Springs, not as happening for a single 20-something, however. I lived there some in my 20s (single at the time), and it probably wasn't the best place for that demographic. Great place to raise a family, though. I'd go Denver, Boulder, etc.

Okay, I totally admit it was a melodramatic title for a post...yes, I know there are plenty of single folk in their 20s. And I am sure that being married is lovely...

I guess I just want a place for the in-betweens...I'm not in that college phase where I want dorm-like living, but I also am not ready for the suburbs with kids. Does a place like that exist in the metro area?

Definitely it exists... the "hipper" areas are areas closer to downtown-- Highlands, Cheeseman Park, etc I think would fit what you are looking for. Or, you could look more northwest, around Boulder, which I think has the same scene.
