Are there any clean/safe suburbs of Denver that would be ideal for single, young professionals? I'm not really into the urban life, but at the same time don't want to move to a place where it's all families (nothing wrong with families of course, just not at that stage in life yet). Any comments?

Did you try searching the threads for this previously posted information?

Buy or rent?

Price range or budget?

Where are you going to work? What line of work are you in?

What are you looking for? House? Town home? Apartment? Igloo?

Igloo?...

I would love to rent a nice apartment and stay under $900/month. No job lined up but have a business degree...possibly going the banking route. Hopefully I'd be able to find a job shortly after I make the move.

Maybe we should list all the unclean, unsafe suburbs in metro Denver?

It's a short list:

Good to hear! So from what I have read in previous posts, it looks like the following areas may possibly suit me well: Centennial, Highlands Ranch, Westminster, or Broomfield. I may just need to take a trip to CO and check it out. Also considering the Twin Cities.

All suburbs have areas that you're describing - it's a matter of where you want to settle. The southern areas are more densely populated with heavier traffic, but the north is expanding rapidly. There's still a more "rural feel" to much of the northern part of the Denver area, however, this will be changing over the next several years. I'm in an exurb and love it, but it's quite a drive to Denver and we have no substantial public transportation within several miles.

Search this forum for key words and you will find more information that you can even imagine.

Broomfield might work. I know of a few single people living there. It's far enough out that it doesn't feel so dense, yet it's closer to the city than Boulder County. It has good public transportation, and a large Park and Ride.

I would look at Boulder County (Louisville, Gunbarrel, Longmont, Lafayette, Superior, etc). There's quite a few singles who like being close to Boulder but simply can't afford to live there. As mentioned, Broomfield also stands in for a close-to-Boulder suburban area, though I think somewhat less so than those places in Boulder County itself.

A suburb is a community that borders a major city. In Metro Denver, Westminster, Aurora, Littleton, etc are all suburbs of Denver.

An exurb is a bedroom community that is geographically disconnected from a city, but nontheless is still primarily composed of people commuting to cities. In metro Denver, a good example would be Castle Rock or Firestone. (Although both towns only became exurbs in the last 20 years).

Fort Collins or Boulder are not exurbs or suburbs of Denver since most people who live there aren't commuting to Denver.
