I love this dating debate! It doesn't seem like it will be too hard to find a cool hiking/ Skiing buddy. I always set expectations low any time I've relocated somewhere.

Any big seasonal festivals, concerts, or events that will be taking place in Denver that I should be aware of for the summer of 2018?

Red Rocks Concert season is awesome. It’s the best venue in the country. Check the schedule. Red Rocks Entertainment Concerts

This is going to be the big festival in town this summer. https://www.grandoozy.com/?utm_sourc...UaAowHEALw_wcB

If you want to head up in the mountains there are some big events in Aspen and Telluride.

Whatever you do, don’t miss the largest beer festival in the country. https://www.greatamericanbeerfestival.com

The Great American Beer Festival is the premier U.S. beer festival and competition.

Each year, GABF represents the largest collection of U.S. beer ever served, in a public tasting event plus a private competition. GABF brings together the brewers and diverse beers that make the U.S. the world’s greatest brewing nation.

If you're actually looking for educated young females, no doubt they'll know it's "populace," not "populous."

The place for educated young females is DC or NYC.

The evidence is out there - I will dig deeper and respond but it’s hard to do that with a garbage keyboard on an iPhone.

Think of this - you’ve seen this I’m sure, fat, loud, tattooed bearded bros In Denver with girls that are better looking than them. They’re probably dumb dudes, But somehow “fit the mold” of local culture. Likely passive aggressive and aloof so not offensive for opinionated.

Well that stuff doesn’t do well on the coasts. Perhaps girls are either just complacent or just give up. I found out that people like me tend to get lost in the shuffle of the many bros in Menver.

Maybe it’s if you don’t have the right opinion of the local culture you can get screwed. Either way, I still saw lots of not put together 30 plus year olds in Denver on both sides.

@N610DL Yes, Please dig deeper. I would love to get a better idea of the culture before I make the move.

@SkyDog77 Wow, great information once again. I just checked out some pictures of the concert venue! Breath taking!!

You truly know the key to my heart my friend. I definitely will not miss that beer festival. Even if I accept a position elsewhere. it looks like it would be worth the flight.


Update:

I just received another offer in NYC and it is paying a fair bit more than the Denver opportunity (understandably due to the increased cost of living in the geography). I am still gravitating towards Denver because of the outdoor activities and more laid-back lifestyle. I will be flying out in two weeks to spend some time in Denver before I make the final decision. I have about 6 weeks before I make a final decision, so I will keep you posted!

It’s the biggest party Denver throws every year. There are tons of side events, tastings, beer dinners, etc because everyone who’s anyone in the brewing community is in Denver that week.

As for N610DL, he has a very negative view of the city and a very high opinion of himself. You can search his post history if you want a perspective on where he’s coming from and form your own opinion about whether or not his struggles here were mostly self inflicted.

FWIW, my single friends have never had trouble dating. They are mostly in your income bracket but 10-15 years older.

TBH I would stick with NYC as a single young male. You have the rest of your life to 'settle down' to a place, but nothing beats NYC and surround metropolitan areas for what you are looking for.

I want to live in a luxury high-rise community with 24 hour security, covered parking, pool, gym, and amazing community areas.

Please help me in my search for the best neighborhood to relocate to in Denver?

I am looking communities in Capitol Hill, Downtown, Cherry Creek, 5-points, and Cheesman park. Am I on the right track in terms of neighborhoods? Please rank them?

Buildigs I have taken a look at on “Apartments.com” are impressive, but im not sure where to start. I would really appreciate some recomendations based on personal experiences!

What are some of the best spots in Denver to meet the 20-24 educated professional female populous?

Is Denver a great city for singles? The dating pool in my current city is very weak!

Please feel free to give me personal experiences in Denver that will allow me to maximize my time in the city!

Best!!
LoHi or LoDo. LoHi crowd/women seem a little more sophisticated than the LoDo nightlife scene. LoHi would be my selection if I were you.

The singles scene is good. There are plenty of gold diggers here so I would watch out for that if I were you unless you are into that type of thing.
