I live in a miserable city in Ohio and its so disgusting..I want to leave for College but I'm not sure what state, I have Colorado, Idaho and Utah on my mind and I was advised that Fort Collins & Colorado Springs in Colorado are two perfect cities but I would like to get some more advices if its possible. Thanks in advance

Colorado offers more than the other 2 combined! Forth Collins is REALLY growing on me lately! It is truly becoming a greta small to mid size town. So many projects their! Plus NASA is about to sign a deal for up to 10,000 new jobs in that area over the next 5 years. I just feel that Colorado has SO MUCH more to offer such as culture, far more sports teams, far more ski resorts. The weather is about the same as utah, but better than idaho. Great airport and transit. Reasonable housing costs. More diverse job market. The list goes on and on. Colorado is your best bet out of these 3! Unless you want the more secluded lifestyle of idaho?

What's your major? You may want to choose a location for college where after you graduate there are career opportunities in your field, maybe even a chance for an internship, summer or part time job in that industry.

I also grew up in ohio, then fl, but I have lived in Colorado and Utah, by far Colorado is the place to be, I personally loved Ft Collins (and miss it a lot). So Colorado Springs is more of the family / christian town more for families and heavy military influence from the nearby bases, ft collins is more the young person town with csu and nearby access to RMNP, not to mention breweries etc... Utah is not bad. The state is flooded my the mormon church, although there are good job opportunities in the SLC area, and outdoor activities around as well, the people are just kinda different in a weird way, but are overall nice if you dont mind the mormons trying to convert you on the regular... Utah does not seem to have near as many sunny winter days as colorado and although many days are the same, it seems like the front range of Colorado was warmer on more winter days... (except in the mountains of course).
