I used to want to live in Denver as a child, my dad always told me "It's treeless, flat, and boring"

It's certainly not treeless, though trees don't grow naturally around here, exept for Cottonwoods and Willows near the creeks. Much of the city is flat; the western part and the western suburbs are hillier. Boring is in the eye of the beholder.

Well I just realized that he went to the area where the Samsonite headquarters were, do you know anything about that area?

The Samsonite HQ was in the eastern suburbs, right off I-70 in an industrial area.

On a more serious note, my ex is from Denver, and the city reminds me of Minneapolis, very similar. I also thought it was in the middle of the mountains. However, you can only see them in the distance.

It was also more ghetto than I thought it would be.

Were you on Colfax right downtown? That's about as ghetto as Denver gets. If you go in any other direction Denver is actually a clean, newer, fresh city. I am surprised how clean it is. Omaha and Minneapolis are way grimier.

Thanks everyone for your opinions. I am going to tell you the real facts about the city now! Denver has 300 annul days of sunshine a year, it has a higher adverage temperature that san fransisco, it rarley reaches below 90 in the summer, the denver metro area has almost 3 million people in it, think it is actually really diverse, 50.3% White, 10.6% Black, 3.1% Asian American, 1.4% Native American, 0.2% Pacific Islander, and 1.9% from two or more races. 34.7% of the population is Hispanic or Latino of any race this was taken in 2005. Denver is not a mountain town! It is located on the plains! Some facts are that denver is the thinnest city in america, the highest, the city that brews most beer, the city has great night life, and also the drunkest city in america.

Also alot of the tourests dont see the bad parts of denver! yes there is a bad part of denver, doesnt every city have one? Many tourests dont see the real poor areas of the city because the city hides the poor sections. Some really nice looking brand new lofts are projects in denver. So i wouldnt say that it has no bad parts!
