I too find the "natives" never learned to ski/mtn bike or venture out much. My friends that relocated here are all hard core into the rec opportunities.

Its what you make of it. I dont think Denver is all that....but everything else makes it pretty special.

That said, I could move to almost to any of those cities and be fine. More water=buy a boat.

What I would like to see is Denver get the second Amazon headquarters and Pueblo get the large solar manufacturing plant and solar field as both combined would really help the front range urban corridor.

That would be cool - but I think I heard that Denver was pretty much out of the running for the Amazon headquarters....

I find the natives to be Hispanic Broncos fans for the most part. They never seem to leave town, let alone travel to other parts of the state (or out of it lol).

Most transplants I know tend to love it here off the bat, and they mostly take full advantage of the opportunities/attractions/lifestyle; Californians in particular have a habit of going back to CA eventually, however.

No, I think it was an article in the Wall Street Journal. That'd be great if it comes to Denver.

I would not choose any of those places over Denver, Nashville is ok if you like country music.
