I currently live in Buffalo, NY and what i hate about this place is that people hibernate in the winter. The nightlife is depressing. I've lost my license and our public transportation sucks. If i moved to the state of Colorado and went to either of these cities id like to know how people react to winter ? and what is public transportation like?

Colorado is a 12 month state, if you like the outdoors.
Denver has an expanding light rail system that gets used a lot.
Buses run in the metro area as well as intercity bus service to the major cities.

I am a Bartender and a salesmen I can afford 1,000 rent. Just nervous to make a big move to this state if it could possibly end up being depressing in the winter like buffalo is.

Heck no. Winter in Denver is mostly a sunny event, no long periods of overcast, just occasional snow that usually is gone in a day or two.

No lake effect snow in Denver, but a blizzard once every few years.

Over the years we've had posters on here who are from Buffalo and will attest to this. Millions live in the Denver area, fear nothing, come on out.

$1000 in the city is light. You can probably find something in the 'burbs or get some roomies.

Don't move to Colorado Springs if you are counting on using public transit. The Springs has a bus system straight out of the dark ages. Find a roommate and move to Denver. You should do just fine in Denver or one of its suburbs. Our winters are much milder than Buffalo's, needless to say.

Best to check on public transit before you rent. Get near a busline, get near one(s) headed where you want to go most often. A lot of people rent then look and may not be as pleased or well served as they could have been.

It will be tough to find a place to yourself for $1,000 in Denver. Roommates is the way to go so you can be in the city and near the restaurants.

CO Springs is not an option due to having to use public transportation. You'd need a room mate in Denver for that price. 1200 and you can get a decent place on your own.
