For the hippy vibe check out Dulcinea's and Sancho's , both on the 700 block of E. Colfax. or just visit here Quixotes True Blue :: Sancho's Broken Arrow :: Dulcinea's 100th Monkey :: Cervantes' Masterpiece ::

scene kids are probably found at Rock Bar i'd guess.

I also moved from Miami - via Clearwater- to Denver. I picked Broomfield and love it. Express bus to Denver or drive. Takes less than 30 mins. I have been in Broomfield for 6 years. Schools are great. You can get a beautiful, large home for under 450,000.

Default From Florida To Denver

Hello all, thought I would toss a bone out to see what you all think.

I am 23, a graduate of Florida State and I want to move out to Denver. I really want to work in the park system planning or such. I have visited Denver and know that I would like living there...

Questions.. How can i get my foot in the door with the parks and rec department?

I don't have an answer for you, but you might have better luck if you change your subject heading to "Denver Parks and Rec jobs?" That will attract those who have experience working for the City of Denver.

Hope that helps.

Default Need a change...

My husband I currently live in Ybor City, FL (historic district in Tampa). We have a 3 1/2 year old son. The crime, the cost of living, the humidty... the list goes on and on.... has us thinking about moving.

My husband is in upper management in the IT field, I am an accounting clerk, but want to work part time when our son starts kindergarden.
He has lived in TX, KY, NYC and FL. I have lived in OH, NC, KY and FL.

Obviously with my husband being the "bread winner" - we are looking for locations that have jobs in his field. The locations we have found that have jobs, have seasons (which we both miss) and are good for families are:
Fargo, ND
Ft. Collins/Denver, CO
Raliegh, NC

I'm looking for opinions, comments, suggestions... anything that can help us make our decision.
Thank you!

Fargo? Seriously?

It would be easier to move to NC then to Denver or Ft. Collins, but there is still humidity in NC.

Otherwise, get a job and see if it's Ft. Collins or Denver, then get housing close to work.

I have to echo the previous poster's sentiments...Fargo??? Yikes! LOL! I lived in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area for 8 years (we live in Denver now), and I think you only get two seasons in Fargo...cool and COLD! Brrrr!

I've never lived in Florida, but I grew up in TX (Houston), and lived in Dallas for several years. I don't know much about NC seasons. Out of the ones you listed, I'd pick Denver in a heartbeat. Gorgeous scenery, and nice weather, although the cost of living is probably a little higher than Fargo on Raleigh.

I came to Denver 35 years ago to get some job experience and then move back to the midwest. So far, I'm still here. Love the climate, mild winters, lack of oppresive humidity, lots of sun, and friendly people. You would love Colorado, but if not you can always move on. Get the job first, then figure out which neighborhood you want to live in.

Default Wanting to move from FL to Denver

Hi,

I am seriously considering moving from the west coast of FL to Denver this summer. I am looking for advice on how to search a for a job while out of state. It would be great if I could at least line up a couple of interviews before I arrive. I work in accounting, public accounting. Anybody know what the job market is like? Can anyone recommend any good recruiters? If anyone can offer any advice and/or share their experiences, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.
