There are many, many threads on this forum already covering a wide range of topics about living in Denver, so you would do us all a favor if you do some forum searching first.

Give us more information or something we can respond to. Why are you planning to move to Denver? You mention going to Telluride, but have you been to any other part of the state, including Denver?

Throughout the CD forums, you often hear people suggest that one should search the forums for answers before posting. I can understand that. However, I would submit to all those recommending that the following: is there anything at all that hasn't really been discussed at length on these forums? I suppose there is an occasional new topic in the news that gets discussed here. I tend to think that if everyone did a good job of searching and only started a thread when their question was truly new...well, these forums would probably be a ghost town. Just saying. As someone who searched these forums long before I ever registered with CD, I can personally say that I enjoyed reading as many threads as possible on an area. I enjoyed reading as many threads on a single question as I could find. While a question may be the same, the people responding and the answers provided often are not. Put yourself in the shoes of someone looking to relocate to an area. I guarantee you that you would rather read 20 similar threads than just one or two. Most people are in a "I want to hear as many opinions as possible" mode before they relocate.

In a nutshell, if everyone only started a thread on truly new topics, this would be a very boring site to visit. In fact, I probably wouldn't need to visit it more than once a month.

No one should have to do anyone a favor here. They arent inconveniencing you directly, as you have the choice to respond or skip over it.

Who cares if the question has already been addressed. The questions asked may promote additional responses from other people who may have something valuable to add that may be helpful to others who are considering a move to Colorado as well.

Just sayin.
Go ahead, attack me for stepping in...

We are more than happy to help people out with specific questions. Too often people post a fairly general question about things that have already been discussed at length, which means to me that they haven't done a forum search first.

The OP asked "tell me the good about denver/colorado" and "can i hear some stories advice details and even the bad about the state please". There have been many threads about the pros and cons of living in Denver and in Colorado. Also, if a poster is more specific about what they are looking for, and why they want to move away from where they are currently living, then we will be able to give them better answers.

BTW, daisies, I don't think any of us are on this forum to "attack" anyone. We do have some lively discussions, and we all have opinions that we are very willing to share.

Denver is like a smaller, cheaper, less traffic-congested Los Angeles, with snow, a football team, and none of the Hollywood melodrama or palm trees.

So yeah, nothing like Telluride.
