What is Denver's water like? I would imagine with the Rockies it can get its water from springs...

I belive the water is from the mountains.

Any city that gets it's water from a mountain range has to be good.
Wow...New York doesn't get its water from the Atlantic or the Hudson River?

When I was growing up, NYC was supposed to have the best water, but this was awhile ago. Cities tend to have better water than rural/burbs. I would never drink the water where I live, yet the city I grew up in, the water was great.

NYC gets its water from Upstate.

Orlando's water is HORRIBLE, to echo a previous poster. Smells like rotten eggs (sulpher or something). I hated to even put it in my mouth to brush my teeth.

Yep...Orlando's water is pretty typical of Florida as a whole. Florida has the worst water I've ever tasted BY FAR.

Syracuse suburbs have good tasting tap water IMO.

Warning: Stay away from tap water in Steubenville, OH. Stuff floating around in it and it tastes terrible.

ok, so I know this isn't a US city but if you ever get a chance, try the tap water from Gibsons B.C. It's amazing; almosts tastes like glacier water. Go to this link
Gibsons Best Water in The World, Town of Gibsons, BC, Sunshine Coast (http://www.gibsons.ca/1Gibsons/gibsonswaterworldsbest.html - broken link)
