Culturally, geographically, human geography and geologically / C.O.L. / Etc.

What are some of the major comparisons?
What really sticks out when comparing and contrasting the two?

Besides the FR being *slightly* more 'isolated' geographically...?

This is my 1st post!!! Yay for me!!! )

-Seattle is a much more dense than Denver and is a lot more green and forested and has more steep hills with waterfront all around the city. Denver is very much landlocked.
-Denver has a whole lot more sunshine and is a bit more affordable than Seattle.
-Denver is a better sports city.
-The Front Range has better skiing.
-Tacoma is like a blue collar more industrial version of Seattle, Colorado Springs has a much different and more conservative demographic than Denver.
-UW is right in the city of Seattle, CU has its own college town base of Boulder with a lot of notoriety as a liberal college town.
-Puget Sound area has a larger corporate base with an edge city of Bellevue which has its own impressive skyline, along with Redmond and the Seattle metro is home to more fortune 500 based companies.
-Seattle is more of a foodie town and an international gateway on the Pacific Rim, where Denver feels very much like an All American city.
-They are both good places for potheads.

Would you say that the Puget region has a higher cost of living (col)?

Also, wondering what the population difference is like. Aren't there more outlying cities ringing the Sound? With more people?

Or, does Loveland, Boulder, Etc make up for that?

Overall, the F.R. is probably more typically 'conservative' right?
