I can't say Denver is an absolute better overall city than Dallas but it has the Rockies in view and that's hard to beat. I would actually assume that Dallas is the better overall city even if it's less urban, it's twice the size and feels like it (the metro area more so than the city). What I saw of Denver wasn't overly impressive but I have to admit I didn't see very much.

Denver for access to scenery and nature.

Dallas for food, nightlife, and other big city amenities.

Depends when you were there last. It's much more vibrant than it was 5 years. But even then, most of the activity isn't in Downtown. It's in nearby Uptown or Deep Ellum. Thankfully, DTD has good transit options to either bordering neighborhood. I find the nightlife in both neighborhoods more vibrant than Denver's.

Battle of the D's! Nice.

I think although Dallas is the bigger D, Denver is the better D that fits just right. I prefer a fresh, younger average D that's clean and active, not too big or small, than a bigger more tired D that's been around the block, without much to look at and runs flat for most of the stretch.
