Hey fellow forum members, it's time for an adventure.

My brother, a friend, and myself are moving to the Denver area in February to escape the south. We are looking into the Aurora area mainly but have also kept the University and it's surroundings in mind. We are all 24/25 years old and want to be around a similar age group if possible so that if we have friends over and music playing things don't go sour at 11pm. We are respectable kids but we like our weekend fun as well. I'm speaking from living down here in MS, so I don't know how the average Denver local would accept music that may be audible from outside the house on the weekends and such.

Anyways, can anyone give me some ideas as to where I may look in Denver if these two areas aren't as I expected them to be? What parts of Denver are budget friendly?

There are 3 of us, and possibly 3 dogs and a cat. Two dogs have to have a fenced back yard so that limits us to houses, which is ideal for us anyways. Are there plenty of rental properties throughout or does it depend upon the area? We would like to stay in the 1000-1500 dollar range for rent without utilities and such.

Most importantly...what type of wardrobe should we be going for for a first few months in the state? I saw the temps this year were quite low but is Denver one of those cold cities that allow for jeans, boots, and a northface or similar jacket or does it call for a snow jacket, long johns, thermal socks and damn nice boots? Just so we can start buying.

Can anyone shed some info please? We are moving there with no jobs lined up so that shouldn't be considered as for travel times and such.

Weather is both a non-issue and an issue, of sorts.

For sunny winter days in the city, jeans and a heavy cotton shirt are my standard winter dress, plus a coat if it's grey, windy or snowing. Nights you need a coat. The dry air doesn't cut through you like the humid air back east. I often leave the coat in the car for local trips; the sun is enough to warm you.

From what I'm told on here, it will be problematic to find a rental that will take 3 dogs, regardless of size. Your budget is okay but the dogs will require you to really do some searching.

Can't advise much on the music, but most folks would probably not like hearing other people's taste in music.

Anyone else have an opinion? The music is a non-issue really, it's something we can very easily control and it probably isn't ever loud enough to really be a problem except for when we have crawfish boils here. Something I doubt we will ever do up there haha.
