I live in Atlanta and me and my wife are thinking about moving to Colorado or back to Chicago. Niether one of us are in the Tech business so does that mean that Colorado is not the place for us? I'm in Sports Business Management and she is a Psychologist.

Due to mass migration, traffic sucks in town AND in the mountains and prices are mile high. Colorado's not the idyllic place to live anymore; unless you have tons of dough and can buy a nice spread in the mountains. Jobs are scarce also.

Jobs are scarce??...just do some searching for work and you will know if the jobs are there or not! IT is not scarce by any means, that is for sure.

I Want To Move To Colorado Also, But I Hear A Lot Negative Comments About It. I Was There Last Year But I Did Not See A Lot Problems, But My Friend Lives In Commerce City, He Is A Teacher And Told Me That Colorado People Are Prejudice Against Hispanic And Job Opportunities Are Not Really Good.

Job opportunities are fairly good right now, from what I can tell.

As for prejudice against Hispanics, I think there may be some truth to that. The illegal immigration debate tends to bring out the worst in many people, and I think for a few people it leads them to focus their anger on Hispanic people generally, regardless of their immigration status. I don't think such people are the majority here, but such prejudice does exist.

Default Moving to CO was a great decision.

We moved here six months ago from Long Island and I do not regret the decision at all. The people are incredibly friendly in comparison with those from NY; the cost of living for us is considerably lower and the amount of people concerned with their health and the environment is truly invigorating and inspiring.

There is a great need for psychologists here and office space is cheap.

As for you- I would wager that the number of people involved in sports on a per-capita basis here in Colorado is among the highest in the nation. Just today, we saw people running, hiking, walking, literally hundreds of bike riders, guys climbing in the foothills, parachuting over north Boulder and this morning there were 6 people in hot air balloons. I'm sure there were others, but these are the ones I recall from today. There are many specialty retail stores here that range from kayaking to hardcore skiing or mountain climbing and everything in between. Sounds like a perfect fit!

I personally haven't seen any anti-latino sentiment at all.

Dont believe everything you hear. Denver has a high hispanic population, so I wouldnt worry about those comments.

Don't put too much stock in what anyone ( myself included ) tells you. It's only their opinion. Find out for yourself, becasue everyone sees things differently.

Smile colorado springs or outside of boulder?

Hi! My husband and I are planning on moving to Colorado (where we can afford a house-we're in CA now) but aren't sure which city would be the best for us. We have a 16 month old who needs to have lots to do, preferably outside or kid friendly museums. We love the mountains and want to be as close as possible. Can anyone tell me their opinions on these two places? Thanks!
