Hi, my husband and I are thinking of moving to Colorado--Denver Metro area specifically from Dallas and I am wondering which areas are best for: a small community feel with short commutes to DEN? We are visiting the Denver area this weekend and will hopefully get a feel for the area(s). I've heard Longmont is nice but maybe a bit pricey? Please help these Coloradian (is that right?) wanna be's. Thank you for your replies in advance.

Why are you thinking of moving to Denver?
What line of work are you (two) in?
Where are you going to work?
What is your rent budget or housing price range?

Longmont is a bit far to Denver. There are actually quite a few jobs in Longmont itself, and most of the people who live there commute to Boulder or Broomfield at the furthest, and commute routes to both places are absolutely packed from Longmont. (Try driving the diagonal at 8am -- it's crazy!) On the plus side, it does feel like it's an independent town and not just part of the suburban blob surrounding Denver.

Unfortuantely, a lot of people ask for this, but I don't think there is such a thing as a small, self-contained community within an easy commute to Denver that is also affordable. Golden or Morrison might qualify, but both are very expensive. I think your best bet will be to simply live in suburban metro Denver.
