Tough call, wow! Id give the slightest edge to Denver ONLY because I like mountains nearby. Now, MPLS has some decent ranges that are relatively close, but Denver trumps in that aspect. Take away the Rocky Mountains from Denver, and Id take Minneapolis.

Denver. The weather is much better, it has mountains in its backyard, and Colorado would never elect Al Franken.

Denver simply because it's out west. However, Minneapolis wouldn't be bad at all.

Minneapolis because it's the "City of Lakes" and it's close to other interesting cities, Madison, Milwaukee, and Chicago, plus Canada. Denver's got Boulder and that's about it.

I'm not real familiar with Minneapolis (drove through once), but from what I hear and read, it sounds like a great city. I would probably go with Denver though b/c of the mountains and the slightly milder winters. Minneapolis winters scare me. Denver winters I could deal with.

Minneapolis is a great city, but I'd rather live in Denver. Denver is a great city too and has better weather.

Denver, because of the weather and mountains.

Denver because of the mountains and not as cold as MSP, but I've heard good things about MSP as well.
