I am a 27 year old female looking to move to either Denver or Colorado Springs very soon. I am currently an in home personal trainer and would like to stay in my industry. I do not drink or party but I love good food, art and people. I also love snowboarding and being in the outdoors. I am very active. I want to live somewhere that has great public transportation. Anyways I am just trying to decide what area would be best for me..suggestions?

Denver, hands down, all categories.

No public transit to speak of here in COLO SPGS, and probably less as budget cuts hit home.

Agreed...although Denver Metro's bus system lacks but with the light rail it's better.

The only place that fits your criteria is Denver. You can find everything you need there. Plenty of good restaurants. Good public transportation.

colorado springs is nice, but it's much smaller than Denver, so your transportation and cultural activities are much more limited.

all i can say about Springs is that the traffic/transportation system is darn near nonexistant. as for denver, aside from the usual bs that big cities tend to get (especially ones with nearly 10 major suburbs) would fit your criteria nicely. however there is another location that is a far better choice (albeit relatively unknown). that city is Longmont. Rated top 50 several times to live in the nation as well as attaining the rank of an All American City (2006) Longmont is a cheap, centrally located, AND a great outdoorsy city with plenty of great places to eat and visit. The public trans system works just fine (xept main street during evening rush hour). i wouldn't count it out as an option before you check it out.
