Our kids grew up in Denver so we will likely be tied to this area which is not at all a bad thing.. and this is more of a retirement plan which is not what the op asked about.. but..

Dillon / Frisco in the Summer, Lake Havasu Arizona in the winter.. Place in Dillon/Frisco generates some income in the winter from short term rental.

(I like the water..)

Not as good as Buena Vista/ Hawaii ... or Vail/Key West however.

I don't know why, but maybe it's all the green, the scenery, and the laid back vibe (even moreso than here). I find it stunningly beautiful. I'd live in Portland or Seattle in a heartbeat if given the chance. The only thing stopping me would be distance to family and the fact I don't really know anyone there. That's something important to consider, no doubt.

That said, I'm definitely going to give it a few more years at least before I decide if this is where I'm going to stay for a while. I do love the mountains being only 20 minutes away and all the opportunities for recreation that entails.
Funny, I could've written this almost word for word, ShampooBanana, although I've been here 14 months now. We really miss Phoenix, more intensely during the wintertime of course Both my husband and I have good friends in Portland and Seattle so those were strong contenders, but having immediate family in Denver sealed the deal for us.

My dream situation would be home base in Crested Butte, wander the planet a good deal too.

Toronto, Montreal, and New York City (Manhattan or Brooklyn) for me.

I'd be gone tomorrow if I had a job in any one of those cities.

I want to live everywhere. Lol. The most consistent place I find myself wanting to live is Seattle!

I dream of living in London. And weekending in the English countryside.

Then, of course, I wake up and go outdoors here in Denver and see crappy filthy perma-piles of old snow next to the solar-power cleared sidewalks.

I really like Denver, it's been my home for 38 years, but every year I hate winter more than I hated it the year before. Someday I'll probably move away to a warmer place. And continue - I can scrape up the money to visit but can't remotely afford to live there - to dream of London.

That's where I moved from. Maybe if my psychology changes and I can somehow put up with the depressing weather of Seattle, I will love to live there again.
