As my user name suggests I am a Denver biased poster, but I would like to hear from you. If you were to leave your current location(or even if you live in one of these cities)..and you had just two choices for your next home(where would you choose to live)..those being Minneapolis or Denver..or of course the third option suicide as you hate both places.

Left Charlotte for Denver and Denver for Minneapolis. All three are great areas, but I'm more impressed with Minneapolis.

I'm surprised you didn't list criteria like most versus threads. People usually want to know where one city beats out another. You know, criteria such as skyline, architecture, density, culture, universities, diversity, most dogs, etc...

This started out as reactionary charged thread..it's open to anyone's personal opinion,criteria..why would you want to live in either city?..This thread will not get ugly as I am guilty of becoming..so keep it civil. Blackout's criteria above should be considered.

I'd go with Denver. Although Minneapolis would be an appealing city to me too as I am a big Midwest fan.

As a resident of Minneapolis, I'd have to say I think Minneapolis is a great city to live in. It has a compelling mix of parks, city lakes, vibrant neighborhoods, a busy cultural and music scene, and an interesting and lively downtown. It also has a diverse economy and an overall high quality of life. I also like Denver, and would rank it as one of my top 5 relocation destinations were I to move. Several neighborhoods remind me of parts of Minneapolis (eg Washington Park). I'm also impressed (and envious) of the areas commitment to promote rail transportation.

All in all--I prefer the City of Minneapolis to Denver (especially if St Paul is also factored in), but I'd go with the Rockies over the flat or rolling lakes, woods and farm fields of Minnesota. Denver also has a better overall climate, but its also (slightly) more remote.

Despite my many squabbles with the TC posters, I vote Minneapolis. I need to be near greenery and substantial bodies of water.
