Does someone have any information about Stapleton? It looks like the homes are nice, new, and affordable. Also, it seems walkable and the schools appear to be good. However, I read that it was built on a former airport. Any environmental issues?

I have heard nothing but good things about Stapleton. It is the site of the old airport but there are no known environmental issues. There are a few posters here that live there.

We have friends that live in Stapleton and they love it. I don't know if i'd consider it "walkable" compared too???

Also to me it seems like a very family oriented area.

Here's one of my recent posts about Stapleton. If you search for Stapleton in this forum, you'll find many posts and threads with some good info, and I'm happy to answer any specific questions you have and others will chime in as well.

A neighborhood in Denver like Sewickley?

But to back up a minute, you mentioned Irvine was close to family - how close, and how good is your relationship with your family? I moved from Boston to Denver with my then toddler to live near my parents and my sister and her family and it's been wonderful having everyone nearby. I've gotten to see my nieces grow up and go to all of their shows and recitals and graduations, etc. and my family has done the same for my son. My parents didn't provide daily childcare but they've been my back up when I needed to work late or if my kid was mildly ill - sick enough to stay home but not so badly that I needed to stay with him if I had things I needed to get done at work. And conversely, if my now widowed mother needs help, we are close enough to easily take care of something for her.

This arrangement only works if you live in close enough proximity - we are under 15 minutes from each other. But if you have that type of relationship with your family, and you would be living close by enough for this type of hands on help, I would not underestimate the value of this factor in your decision making.

Default For those who have moved to Denver from a warm climate, what is your opinion of winter in Denver?

My husband and I are looking to move out of California in the next year or two and are interested in Denver as an option. It would be helpful to hear from coastal California transplants, or those who have moved to Denver from a warm climate regarding Denver winters. Do you like winters in Denver, or is it difficult to adjust to the colder, snowy winter weather?

Just an FYI, there is a prediciton for possible snow this Friday (in the cities, not just the higher elevations). Winters are long here even though there are frequent mild spells in mid-winter.
