Hey all,

I'm graduating from college at the end of the summer and need a change. I've lived in Cincinnati my whole life and feel that this is the time to check out new places, otherwise I'll never leave. My girlfriend is an elementary school teacher and has been substituting for the past year since the job market is so saturated here. She found some jobs in Denver and I've only heard great things about the city. Being a marketing/real estate major I'm feeling optimistic with job opportunities since its such a diverse degree. (I wouldn't move without a job first though)

Is Denver good for young professionals? My friend is at school in Denver, she loves it, but going to school somewhere is different than making a life there. Where are good places to look for apts? (around $1000/mo. range) other than skiing in the winter what's good to do outdoors in the summer? Any insight on the city is appreciated.

Jake, it's all good here. Fear not. Start the resumes flying, use a local phone number with vonage so that you look local, area code 303.

Default LoDo and Outdoor Fun

Hey Jake
Welcome to Colorado! Colorado school districts - especially elementary schools seem to always be looking. She should have some luck.

Lots of outdoor fun. Biking - competitive and leisure is very popular. Mountain biking is especially fun - lots of people train in the area for national competitions. Sailing is popular on the area reservoirs - we've regained some of the rainfall from previous years. LoDo (lower downtown Denver) is great every day of the week. Even with a bit of recession, comedy clubs are packed. New blues and jazz clubs are opening up. Very good music scene in the area.

Not to rain on the parade, but teaching jobs are not that easy to get here. Boulder Valley School District gets an average of ~ 100 apps/job, and with the recession, it's likely to get worse. Still jobs are found, even in a recession. GF may need to sub for a while.

I agree it's a great place for young professionals to live.

Default neighborhoods?

thanks for the feedback.

What are some good neighborhoods to look for places to live. I've heard Cherry Creek is a good spot for young professionals. We're looking to be spending no more than $1000 a month on rent. Any suggestions?

Cherry Creek is not the place for you, with many town homes in the $1,000,000 range, it may be a little pricey. Affordable apartments are all over the city. Google apartment rentals and check out Craig's List.
