Hello,

I am visiting Denver in august for my birthday with my boyfriend. We are thinking about a possible relocation to Denver or a city around Denver. I was wondering what areas I should visit while I am there. What can I do to get the "FULL" experience? I am currently working as a RN and my boyfriend is in the army.

As far as relocation what cities would be great to move to?

If anyone could help that would be great thanks!!!!!

Bars
Rockies game
16th St Mall
Art Museum
Civic Center Park
State Capitol *
Denver Mint *
Denver Zoo *
Red Rocks *
Aquarium (don't eat there)
Elitch Gardens
the mountains
RMNP
Black Hawk

Any of the cities are fine. We don't know where you're working and what your budget is, so it's hard to recommend somewhere without that information.

My wife and I came out here on our recon-trip in December 2006. We did a lot of boring stuff in addition to the things I starred above. At the time, we lived in a small-town in CA, so simple things like visiting K-Mart and Wal-Mart supercenters were enough to excite us. We also ate at a lot of chain restaurants that we didn't have back home (like Burger King), and also visited Colorado Springs. I also think we stayed in a different hotel every night.

We had such a good time, we came back in June 2007, this time with a moving truck. We landed in Aurora (which is as good a spot as any for newcomers), had no jobs, and made a go of it.

And here we are.

At least one brew pub, unless you don't drink beer at all.

Take a bike ride on the trails.

Emphatically agree on Red Rocks.

Drive up to the top of Mt. Evans if you have time, maybe Lookout Mtn. (I know they're not in Denver.)

Arrive at trail head at 10am to hike one of our many 14ers wearing only shorts and Tevas, packing your favorite canned summit brew.

Seriously- the Union Station project should be almost complete and as a local even I'm stoked to check it out. Will have a nice hotel as well to stay at and you can't beat the local. Check out a Rox game and Stranahans from there.

If just the two of you, anywhere would work. The big hospitals are in Denver (several), Aurora (2, I think), and Lakewood (1). There are others scattered around. Where would the BF be working?

As I said, there are others scattered around. The community hospitals are smaller, and have lower acuity of patients, which may be seen as either good or bad. Young nurses tend to like high-acuity places. Sky Ridge has 185 beds.

Denver Health, just one hospital in Denver, has 397 beds, St. Joseph's, 371, University of Colorado, 467 (Aurora).

You can look them all up here.
