I've been looking into Denver, I'm probably going to take a trip out there once spring arrives.

My only concern is how isolated it is. There are really no other major cities nearby.

Colorado Springs to the south, Greeley to the north, Boulder to the west.

^They are not exactly "large" or even significant or different from Denver, really. Kind of like how Portland and Tacoma really aren't much different than Seattle.

Honestly, isolation comes with mountains. That's why they are there. Still, maybe looking int Asheville, NC or Pittsburgh, PA would be a good idea if nearby diverse cities is what you want.
