Yes, the location thing is horribly anecdotal by me, but I've seen couples break up when those chose the wrong place to live. Usually because they picked a place that worked for one, and not the other. My Parker note was really because I've known people that moved out there and then began hating it (and later each other) because they were now too far from both their friends and their interests. Which goes against the idea of "absolute best places."

Now, that's not really Parker's fault. It is people not choosing a new home for the right reasons. (Picking a bigger/nicer home over one that was located closer to town/work/friends).

And I'll retract the Highlands Ranch thing. That's too complicated to explain here - it's really an inside joke among my friends - and they aren't reading it. Gotta stop posting while working (and waiting on others to do stuff) late at night
Ah, thanks for clearing that up. I love Highlands Ranch but to each their own.

Are you trying to be rude? I thought this was a positive forum not one that involves people who are mean. I was only asking for opinions in areas of Denver...a With that said do YOU know how to be nice?��

Don't mind davebarnes. He used to be a lot nicer, but as his house appreciated he kept buying higher and higher horses to sit on.

This thread got incredibly rude, but for the record, to the "aurora defenders", we lived there for a year after moving to Colorado, off of Mississippi and Havana. And I know that I didn't like it AND that property values are lower there, which generally indicates a less desirable area. Despite it being closer to downtown than areas with higher property values, like Parker, Highlands Ranch, and Castle Pines. If you have a problem with that, take it up with the city. Maybe the area by Southlands is semi-nice, but it's basically as out of the way as Parker. Pretty sure people post in forums looking for differing opinions. I gave mine as a Colorado resident, no need to be nasty. And the number of posts someone has made (I only began posting because I had a question of my own), does not make them more or less informed than someone else. People should post to be helpful, not to give themselves a false sense of superiority while they hide behind their computer screen.
