I am a young business professional trapped in the retirement state, better know as Florida. In the summer of 2008 I plan on moving to a new state and Denver, Colorado is one of my top 5 picks. Here a list of bullet points about me and my lifestyle.

* I am 26 years old single male
* I work in information technology and marketing
* I enjoy going out to various bars and nightclubs at least twice a week
* I am into snowboarding, mountain biking and various water sports

So, do you think that Denver might be the right place for me in 2008?

I would also like to hear some pros and cons about living in Denver from people around my own age.

Yes, I think so.

I'll leave the pros and cons, most of them, up to
other people. I do like most of the weather, I don't
like the pollution downtown, but we don't have a
whole lot of pollution except downtown, and even
there it's not bad compared to some places! ^_^

Default Denver is perfect for you

Hi, Denver is perfect for you, from your criteria in your post. I just moved here and none of that criteria applies to me - but from what I can see in the last eight weeks, it's everything Denver - plus, it's sunny and warm here all the time, even when it's cold it's sunny. Good luck. I'm thinking about Tampa because of its liberal arts college and beautiful campus and downtown Tampa. tre

If you don't mind me asking... where did your live before you moved to Denver?

I have lived in the Tampa Bay Area for the better part of my life. I still find myself heading back down there just about every other week or so just to get away from Orlando. The University of Tampa is a great school for liberal arts. I know many people that have gone there and loved every minute of it.

Except for the "water sports" bit, Denver seems to fit the bill. Although I'm not really familiar with the bar/nightclub scene, friends who are seem to do fine in Denver.

I just moved here from Chicago. I'm a 27 year old female "young professional" as well. You'd like it if you are into the outdoors. I've not been to any clubs yet but have gone to a few bars. I'm more into chilled out places that have good brews on tap, and if you are a beer snob like myself you will love it here.

You might want to check out LoDo, it's by the ballpark and lots of bars, clubs and restaurants. I live there and love it most of the time. It does get kind of crazy, but that was also during the World Series and I expected that.

I believe Denver was ranked number 1 mid-size city for cycling trails. No need to comment on the snow sports. Lots of IT jobs. I vote yes.

Chicago was on my list, but after spending 2 weeks there I changed my mind. The city has a lot to offer, but it was a little too much for me. I'm more into chilled out places as well. All I need is a great beer selection and good music, preferably some smooth ambient beats. I love nightclubs, but I can only handle them once every 3 months or so. *wow, I sound like an old man...*

I have been looking at a place called Glass House that is one block away from the LoDo area. It looks like a really cool area.

Thanks for the information Katmoney. If I end up in LoDo I will have to take you out for a few beers.

That is sweet! I'm just about sold on that news alone. I'm might be bring more tech jobs into the area. I will be relocating 2 of my 3 tech companies to wherever I end up moving.

OOOH..the Glass House is gorgeous. I take my dog for walks by there-it is by the trails running along Cherry Creek and the Platte River. A really great location. If I decide to stay here long term I'm going to look to live closer to that area.

As for ambient beats-I've yet to find any place in Denver that plays that kinda music, but then again I couldn't really find it in Chicago either. It's great lounge music!
