Comedy Central's South Park takes place near Denver. That's cool!!! You also get more snow than Scranton; that makes me envious! Your suburbs are also much more cautiously and efficiently planned than Scranton's "slap 'em up quick for the rich NJ/NYC dummies" suburbs.

For better or worse. People here might be a little too real for most.

Seattle and Portland both have the most excellent blend of urban and natural landscapes in close proximity.

Denver

- Active and vibrant downtown that's always improving and getting bigger.
- Impressive expansion of mass transit system (light rail & commuter rail) that will serving pretty much every angle of the metro area
- Noticable physically fit population and active outdoor and sports culture
- Some charming neighborhoods and interesting architecture
- Great Art Museum
- Nice and scenic setting where praries meet the Rockies
- For a cool city that picks up on trends it's still relatively affordable
- Plenty of sunshine
- Great modern airport, can fly nonstop to just about any major city in North America

I'll add.

-Great beer
-Good green chilli dishes--though maybe not as good as New Mexico(and different)

Also, I'll second that Denver as a city seems really fit and there is a true love of the outdoors there.

I can't believe I forgot beer, DUH!
I was thinking of attending this in October: Great American Beer Festival. Denver, CO, Oct 10-12 2013
Green chile, well yeah it's there but New Mexico owns that with gusto.

I'm not quite sure why ainulinale would try to correct a fact ,but here's my response 5 years later. I KNOW Dallas metro is bigger than Houston, but the fact remains that HOUSTON is the biggest CITY in Texas, both in people and square miles. Metro is irrelevant, since this thread is NOT about metros. I'm not attempting to sound snub. We all have the right to defend ourselves .
