I couldn't relate to the "Cheers" mentality. I would hope that kids in Colorado have plenty to do besides sitting around a bar.

I wouldn't move to California if I were at gun point. Pretty much everything I enjoy is either restricted or illegal there.

Partying during the summer months in Newport Beach, Huntington Beach, Redondo Beach or Marina Del Rey is very, very HOT. I wasn't into snow skiing, going to a Theater for a Play or even going to the Sunset Strip....but I sure could find some totally fun places to go and have a great time in summer and winter.
Of course, back when I was in my 20's, more people were much more behaved than today when they "partied". There was NO "girls gone wild" then. The ladies back then weren't into going "wild", they were just into "having fun".
It sounds to me like you just love and miss the beach, because honestly if you cannot find something to do in Colorado then you are doing it wrong.

In Denver you can catch a play often times off broadway or even broadway hits travel through Denver, some of the hottest comics in the country come to comedy works, there are museums of all different sorts, you have art galleries, there are the bars/clubs, every type of sporting event you can find, day trips to places like Estes Parks, find a place to go horseback riding for a day, there several areas you can go to to hike some more difficult then others, several concert venues that pull in national and regional groups, local bars with live music of every kind, I have a friend who recently took a girl to a gun range to shoot guns for a couple of hours, you can go to the zoo (they even have night events a few times a year), you have both Elitches and Water World, of course you also have movies, and skiing. In other words there is something to do for any type, unless that person only considers the beach a good place to go.

I know some people just love and can't live without the water, but I don't get it. Spent a week in Siesta Key Florida, supposedly the #1 beach in America..I stayed for about an hour and was all like , "meh"...and never went back. I much more enjoyed riding my motorcycle on the highways next to it.
