From what I've learned about Atlanta, Denver and Atlanta seem very similar, except Atlanta might have a little more nightlife and is more cultural than Denver. But Denver has less crime and traffic problems, is laid back, and is good for singles (supposedly).

The only reason I'd move to Atlanta over Denver is because I've been here all my life, and so snow, mountains, and Denver clubs are an old thing. I've "been there and done that". I love change.

But if I had never lived in Atlanta and never lived in Denver, I think I'd choose Denver over Atlanta. You could live here for 3 - 5 years and move when you got tired of it.

If you buy a place up here, definitely buy a loft downtown if you can afford it. It can be expensive (300,000k at least) but it will appreciate the most. And make sure you get a good deal. The housing market in Denver right now is a buyer's market, which means lots of people are anxious to sell but not getting any offers.

I live 20 minutes from downtown.... but if I lived in downtown I think I'd have more fun and get to go to more events and see more artsy stuff.

Good luck.
Sorry I havent been on here as of late I didn't realize I was still getting messages,lol.... You have given me something to think about I am going to have to see if denver is for me. Ahh decisions decisions

Honestly, When I had no kids and wanted to leave Florida and go to Southern California I just packed up, took my saved money and went. Had some poor days but oh man was it fun! Do what you want ... rent and let go, have a good time then worry about settling into a home. Cant take $ w/ you but youll always smile at the memories. I PROMISE.
Thanks for your advice but I am not that young nor that adventuresome to be renting somewhere (makes me feel dirty feel like I am being pimped). I know I can't take the money with me but while I'm here I don't wanna live like I don't have no cents ahem since,(no pun intended,lol.).
