Hi everyone. I posted this on the general Colrado forum, but I though I would try the Denver one as well for more replys.

This is my first post to these forums. I've found a lot of great info on this thread. I'm hoping to get a few suggestions based on what I'm looking for.

I'm a native Floridian living in Palm Beach County. I'm planning a move to Colorado next summer and I'm hoping for a few suggestions. After over 37 years in the heat and humidity, I've decided I really need a change. I've visited Denver and Vail, but I'm trying to decide what area will suit my needs.
I'm a single male in my late 30s. I work as a personal trainer so I'd like to live someplace where that type of business can flourish. It has become way too seasonal in S. FLorida these days and if I have to endure another slow, blazing hot, humid summer followed by the annual winter invasion from the northeast (NY, NJ, MA) I just might snap :-)

I'd like to be someplace where I can work as a trainer full time and year round. I don't have any kids so family neighborhoods and schools aren't important to me. Not really interested in living next to a university or a retirement neighborhood. Would like a little nightlife and couple fun places for beer and football. Somwhere with friendly folks, but not too overcrowded. Would like to be near the mountains. Looking forward to finding a place with more of a 4 seasons climate. I'm looking to rent for now. So a nice rental area is important as well. Thanks in advance for any input.

Denver, for the year round jobs and relative affordability.

From Denver you can visit Vail and the other high country resorts at will.

Thanks Mike

It's looking more and more like Denver will be the place for me. What are some of the best/nicest areas of Denver in which to rent? I don't necessarily have to be right downtown although I won't rule it out altogether. I'm just not big on massive crowds of people and traffic. Plus I have to find a place that will allow big dogs. (I have a 95lb black lab)

You don't get into massive crowds and people unless you're going to an event, like a concert, sports venue, etc. Otherwise it's mainly people living in their neighborhoods. Since you're a trainer you can pretty much choose your own hours. If you're hooked up with a gym, I'm guessing you're going to be there early so you'll miss the rush hour. Most apartments won't welcome your buddy, but some will. You may try Craig's List. Maybe look for a townhome for rent that has a small fenced in yard.
