1. How are the computer science opportunities in Denver?

2. How many younger people live in the area?

3. How busy is Downtown Denver?

4. As a sports fan, how is Coors Field, Mile High, and the other stadiums in Denver? Nice, old, average, boring?

5. How is safety? And I am not talking about that guy standing on the street corner, but actual gang violence.

6. How does Denver compare to Minneapolis?

Thanks for the help.

1. Good. https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/rmiug-jobs/info
2. Too many according to some.
3. Dead or hopping depending on your perspective.
4. Clean, newish, assets to area.
5. See https://www.denvergov.org/content/de...tics-maps.html
6. Warmer in the Winter. Less humid in the Summer. No bugs. Rent is 20% more and climbing still.

1. Better than most cities our size. Not as good as Seattle or the Bay Area.

2. We are one of the youngest big cities in the country and are constantly listed among the most popular places for millennials to move.

3. Again, busier than most cities our size, but not New York, Chicago, or San Francisco.

4. Coors is a great ballpark with a pretty below average team most years. Mile High was built in the late 90s. It's a decent facility with a great team and passionate fan base. Pepsi Center is a decent arena.

5. Very safe. One of the safest big cities in the country. We have small pockets of gang activity, but it tends to stay in pretty isolated areas.

6. Similar cities. We have better weather and a lot less water. No humidity here so not as green, but a lot more sun, especially in the wintertime. Our skiing is a lot better.

But our boating and water sports are a lot worse.

We do have a lot of hockey though.

Today it's 75 F in Minneapolis and 33 F in Denver.

The weather in Minneapolis isn't as bad as people say it is and the weather in Denver isn't as good as people say it is.

I would argue that our weather is better year-round. Minneapolis is uncomfortably humid in the summer.

Weather is a personal taste. I hate hot humid weather, but I like cool rainy fall weather. Just seems a lot of posters here are "Im from the mid west, I hate my life, my job sucks, sig other left me....Is CO for me? I have no education or skills but 3 kids.."

Both Minneapolis and Denver are nothing like NYC. That might be good or bad for you.

The two cities are very similar in that they have friendly people and a good stable economy.

Denver's weather is a lot milder. I've visited Minneapolis a lot and they have weather similar to where you live in NY. Denver's weather swings all over the place and the snow melts very quickly.

I like the IT opportunities in Denver a little bit better because we seem to be attracting a lot of bay area techies with a start up mentality.

As far as sports, I guess I would give Denver a slight edge because of the Broncos, but it's pretty close.

Denver is VERY safe. Minneapolis isn't that far behind though.

Ugh. I'll take the odd spring snowstorm in exchange for no humidity. I've lived in the Midwest. Cloudy, gray winters and sticky humid summers are not my cup of tea.
