I would go with Dallas. Boulder is beautiful but I've always considered it more of a boutique town than a real city. Of course Denver isn't that far so what Boulder doesn't have, Denver probably does, but I would still probably choose Dallas in the end.

DFW - no state income tax, very short but sometimes very cold winters, coast/mountains/prairie within a few hours drive, very diverse population, Spanish very helpful, very high real estate taxes, toll roads, limited public transportation.
To most people, Dallas is hot in the SUMMER. You know, that one season where most teachers aren't working.

Ah, beat me to it



OP, unfortunately you have no chance of affording a 2-3 bedroom in a nice or even not-so-nice area in or around Boulder. Even nearby towns like Superior, Louisville, or Westminster are not exactly affordable. You would likely either have to have roommates or commute from a cheaper part of Denver or N. Colorado. If you're talking about living in a house and not an apartment, then that cost of housing goes up exponentially.

You might want to look into the Fort Collins area as it is more affordable than Boulder

Seconded. Ft Collins is a wonderful and much cheaper alternative to Boulder.

Thanks for your helpful insights.
I was wondering how the people are? How welcoming, warm or friendly?

You won't have much cash leftover at the end of the month if you live in Boulder. Unless teachers there get paid like 250k per year.
