Atlanta is sooo 1993 plus i hear the downtown really isn't all that. kansas city is a good choice and st. louis is making large improvements in its' downtown area but i'll go with denver. they're more open minded, with legislation anyways, plus colorado has the most sunny days of any state in america! yes, even more than florida. the difference is colorado's sunny days could still come with temps in the 20's!

I don't think it's nearly as open-minded as you've been led to believe....

(And I don't even know what 'open-minded' means, anyway. If by that you mean "liberal," Denver would definitely not be a good choice....)

I disagree. I have found Denver to be very open-minded.

Just out of curiosity, why are you asking all of these questions about Denver if you're from here??

Because it's interesting to get other people's perspectives. I think where you live is more or less what you want it to be. And I think it's cool to get other perspectives--especially when compared with other cities that I know less about.

As far as Denver being open-minded....I don't know what that even means. The term is so over-used and has become meaningless. I never found Denverites to be especialy cosmopolitan or worldly. I mean...it's a medium-sized major American metropolis in the middle of America. I guess it's as open-minded as it gets for middle America, but that's not saying much.

Obviously you are not familiar with Denver so Im surprised by your negativity towards it... could just be the trolling type I assume...

I just said that I've never found it very open-minded. I actually like Denver a lot. It's a beautiful city......

Ooops...I accidently voted for Denver. Denver is actually quite liberal, and Boulder (just north of town) is probobly the most liberal city in the Rockies. I'd suggest Kansas City.

I'm not too familiar with it, but Denver has always struck me as liberal, based on what I see/hear from TV and people who lived there. Maybe not coastline liberal, but probably the most liberal of this group. Not sure where Atlanta is on that spectrum, with it's recent growth.
