Great photos of the Palmer Lake area. I love it there too, which is why I bought my home there. It's good if people think it's 'the worst part of the state' though - fewer lamos around and more space for us to enjoy.

One of the best things of Palmer Lake is its proximity to both Colorado Springs and Denver for jobs. I live near Monument for that reason.

Hey, the Nuggets are in first place with the sixth best record in the NBA. I hope you bought refundable tickets.

I've never been a big fan of the Northeast Denver metro. It's not actually a bad place, but it has a very industrial feel to it and I don't think I'd want to live there.
The East Colfax neighborhood of Denver, and some parts of Aurora are kind of rough.

Other than that, most of Colorado is pretty nice. Fort Collins especially, is one of my favorite cities.

I never understood why Greeley got such a bad rap. It's actually a great city with great people, and the University of Northern Colorado is a pretty good school from what I've heard.

Default Where to live?

My choice: Fowler, CO
Pros: 1200 population, moderate temps, mild winters with little snow, voted most generous zip code in Colorado (by Denver Post). People are friendly, giving, family-oriented. Low crime. Close to Colo Springs & Pueblo (big-box stores/restaurants/theaters, etc) but far enough to avoid the crime, pollution, stress of the big cities. It's quiet and peaceful. New, state-of-the-art grade school. Great school scores in state-wide exams. Little crime...9 churches
Cons: Economically-challenged...we could use some businesses coming to Fowler and increasing job opportunities. Semi-arid area (avg precip approx 12 inches/year).
I've lived in a megalopolis (West Palm Beach Fl to Miami) as a YUPPIE, medium towns (Pueblo, Boulder) and small towns (Fowler). With access to shopping 30-60 minutes away, I'll take Fowler!

You'll love Boulder if you like:

Overpriced houses

Over priced trinkets in small boutiques

Lots of tie die bong shops

20 quack health care provider on every corner (there are an over abundance of unlicensed, untrained, and unethical people claiming to be healers in Boulder)

1000 Slum lords charging top dollar for rent

New Yorkers (there are tons of them in that town - yet everyone wants to blame Californians for Boulders problems - yet I ran into very few. Most people there are from the East Coast)

Snooty, snobby, stuck up people

Yuppies

Coffee snobs who hang out at Vics all day (Doesn't anyone have a real job in that town?)

Meat Eating Vegetarians

Closet Republicans

“Faux” liberals

Kids in brand new Range Rovers pan handling for drug money

Drug addicts harassing you for change

Poor people who want to trade for everything (hey man, I’ll give you a massage for that sandwich)

Bratty college kids

Pot Heads

Weird unsolved child murders
You must have gotten up on the wrong side of the bed....... this lifetime.
