Is Denver by any chance the fastest growing city the country? for some reason everyone wants to move there.
No. Austin is the fastest growing city in the US. Denver is #11.

Bad schools- all you need is the schools your kids will be attending and even really bad districts can have some pretty good schools within them. You could also choose a city with a lower COL and go with private schools. I think you unnecessarily limit your choices if you eliminate places because of 'bad schools' if you don't dig into what that means at the neighborhood level.

Colorado appears to still hold a libertarian mindset like Arizona, however more liberal-leaning (there are different types libertarian so we are clear) which I think is another pro. Weather seems good. Hiking would be great there. Colorado ranks high for healthy people and seems to be progressing in all the right ways.

If Colorado had an ocean or major body of water it would be the best state. I'm not a hiker as much as I'm a kayaker, swimmer, etc. and that is my personal issue with the syate's location.
The weeeeeeddddd mannnnn. That is the green stuff of which they speaketh.

Washington, Oregon, Alaska, and D.C. all have legalized weed. Those places are significantly greener too for the most part, some parts of Alaska, Oregon, and Washington are no more green than the desert parts of Arizona.

Besides some strains aren't very green... Like purp!
