We are considering a move from Maine to Colorado. Child #2 now attends UNC and child #3 is not far behind her. They've love for the mountains is calling them west. Husband and I are considering a move. Looking for some good towns, within about an hours proximity to Breckenridge, Copper, etc as son competes in snowboarding.

Son is still is a sophmore in high school, so good school district is a necessity. Spoke to someone who lived in the Boulder area about 7 years ago, said gang activity in cities is a problem. Looking for a smaller community.

Can go west of mountains as well. Doesn't need to be east of the Rockies....

Thanks for any advice you can offer.

Really need more specifics from you, like price range, job locations, etc. Lots of town would work for you.

If you want to be within an hours of time of Copper, you're going to be living in Denver metro area. Otherwise you'll be in the mountians trying to find affordable housing, because mountain towns aren't that big, plus the weather is entirely different. Yeah, we have a "gang" problem in the cities. I just had to deal with a gang of girls dressed in green, trying to force me to buy cookies.

Default Need a change....

We have decided to relocate to Denver. We are both Memphis, TN natives and are scared to death here. The plunge that this city has taken over the last decade is astonishing. We do not have kids and are in our late 30's. I do have a few questions about crime. Our crime index in Memphis is second only to Detroit, and it is not by much. What crimes are most likely in Denver?

No need to worry about crime, most of the Denver and front range is mild as far as that goes.

Castle Rock is a small, nice community close to Denver that could fit what you're looking for.

You can check the Denver Police Department for their online crime stats. Outside of Denver proper, you'll have to check with the individual suburbs. Like 80skeys says, you'll find crime here to be pretty mild. There are some communites that have higher crime rates, but that will be reflected in the crime stats. I'm going to guess that even these are lower than what you've been experiencing.

You have to be especially careful around the ones wearing Gold Awards...

Thanks. We have been to all over Colorado the past 3 years and feel comfortable. I realize that there is crime everywhere, there is just A LOT here. Thank you for responding

Melisa, you'll be fine in Denver, or most anywhere in COLO. If Denver is it, go to that forum and check out the Index of Key Threads.

The biggest crime in Denver is that the Broncos often start the season really strong, then they fade in the second half of the season.
