I've heard Houston is home to the $50k a year millionaire, hence the 30 something hipster couple proliferation.

Uptown Dallas is $30k millionaire central. It's got a critical mass of smug, self-absorbed dbags fakin' it 'til they make it.

This is so true. Houston has this to an extent but Dallas originated and perfected the concept. So many dbag-broheim's rolling around in leased luxury cars.

I saw the same thing in Denver, but with 700K homes and they're alcoholics or druggies.

Happens everywhere. I can't tell you know many people I know from my high school in NJ that had their college tuition paid for in full and had their apartments or homes paid for by their parents.

Michigan, Pennsylvania, 1.6%

Arizona, Florida, Wisconsin, 1%
All others, <1%
Smallest number, Delaware, Rhode Island and Vermont, 0.1%

Since this is a statewide total, it would be interesting to see how much the percentages change for the Denver MSA or the Front Range in general.

I'd also suspect, at least in COS, that the Texan total is 3-5% higher because of the large number of Texans that maintain two residences and only summer in CO.

Would they be called sunbirds, similar to Canadians who flock to AZ during the winter refereed as snowbirds?

We had a different effect in San Diego. Lots of AZ residents would come to San Diego in the summer to get away from the oppressive heat.

Otherwise known as "Snowbillies." One of the biggest migration patterns for this would be between AZ and the Upper Midwest.

Denver's vibe literally changes by the day.

The city is neither a melting pot, or a tossed salad...it's kind of like a kids bag of Halloween candy after a couple of days.

Fuzz/dirt covered suckers, tootsie rolls, and crushed smarties at the bottom, a lot of left over wrappers from the good chocolate floating around, 100 pieces of the generic crappy knock off candy, a broken festive pencil, a nickel from the old lady down the road, and a couple of leaves that somehow got into the bag.
