We are getting ready to move to Denver and need some advice on where to live. I have read over some threads and found some conflicting information. We are a couple in our late 20's/early 30's with no kids. We do have 2 larger dogs and would like to rent a house some place with a fenced in yard. We kind of want to live in the suburbs, but not to far to the city to hang out. We were thinking between Boulder and Denver. What areas are safe. We were wanting to try and stay under $1500/month.
Is living between boulder and Denver still going to allow us access to many trails and other outdoor activities?
We would appreciate any help greatly and thanks so much!

If your dogs are pitbulls, there is breed specific legislation (BSL) banning that breed in Denver and some other areas in the metro area.

Do you have a target price you're willing to pay?

Try looking at padmapper.com for rentals.

Default Safe and sound

From my experience, it is safe out here. There are some areas that might not be safe at night but it's obvious where you shouldn't go wondering in the middle of the night (Federal Blvd being one street that I don't frequent).

Try AMLI in Westminster. There are plenty of trails around that community and Boulder is very close (20 min away). This was the only place around that I could find that would work around the point system that most communities use. This one works with you rather than just putting you through the system and denying you. I'm sure it helps to be there in person but you can always try it over the phone. It's nice and upscale and they are pet friendly but they do still have breed restrictions.

I'm not trying to name drop, I've just had a very easy time fitting in out here and I'd like to share that. So I hope this helps.
