A bit conflicted, am I....

I like the idea of living in a scenic spot. At least somewhere with a backyard and quick access to the mountains.

At the same time... I'd also like to be able to take a 10-15 minute walk and have some cultural options. (good local eateries, bookstores, bars, businesses...)

For what its worth... I live in a liberal college town now. So that sort of thing, at least. (though it's moderate sized and a bigger city would be more fun to explore)

So my question is: is there anyway to have this culture at close distance while also not being buried deep in the city?

Are there any happening locations on the outskirts of Denver towards the rockies? Or is that all suburban sprawl?

Boulder or other towns?

You can try some of the neigbhordhoods immediately west of downtown Denver, but you'd have about a 30 minute drive to the mountains.
