Denver has so much to offer everyone that lives here. Denver is very diverse. It overall is a very nice place to live. The weather is favorable most of the time. When moving to Denver, each suberbs are very unique and have a little bit different feel. When talking about "Denver" it stretches from Louisville and Boulder area to the Castle Rock area, which is about an hour away, and Golden to Aurora, which is at least 45 mins away. So when deciding to live here your location could determine your lifestyle in Denver.

There is plenty to do here, lots of movie theaters, good hole in the wall food, too many chain fast food restaraunts. Six Flags, multiple water parks, Bandimere Speedway, Lookout Mountain, Lodo nightlife, South Broadway nightlife, Cherry Creek shopping, Broncos, Rockies, Nuggets, Avs. If you are a UFC fan there are a lot of local sports bars that show all UFC events. There are a lot of affordable gym's here.

Personally I think I would be very bored spending a whole week in just Denver, if you're not also going to the mountains/skiing and seeing some other towns in Colorado. You can pretty much get the gist of what Denver is all about in about 2 days.

Denver is a nice city with a great urban core/downtown.

I myself spent exactly 7 days in Denver just last month. 2/7 of those days I stayed in my hotel room, or I went to the mall.

If I were you I would avoid downtown during the day and stick to it at night. I found a date online and we went out to eat in LODO and it was a lot better walking around at night because everything looked cleaner and prettier, and nights are also better because it's more locals than tourists I think. Many tourists go in early, that's why I think. Boulder, on the other hand, is best at daytime because the mountains are right up there near the city and the people are better looking and less trashy.

I'm not sure where a welder or someone in construction would hang out, don't take this wrong way, but there are a lot of yuppies in places like in-town denver. Lots of spandex-wearing bikers also that I don't like at all. When I want to bike, I bike, even if I'm wearing jeans. You shouldn't have to dress up to do something you love.
