I'm graduating from college in about a year or so, and I'm looking for cities that I would want to live in. I was in Denver last summer and really fell in love with it. It seems like a beautiful city with amazing scenary surrounding it and the Rocky Mountain winter nearby.

My main questions are:

What kind of apartments or lofts can you find in the downtown area and are the prices reasonable? By reasonable I'm talking in the $700-$900 range, give or take.

Is there opportunity for jobs in Marketing?

How are the bugs? Specifically, what kind of spiders are in the area. Spiders just drive me crazy. I hate them, even the small ones. I don't have a problem with seeing them outside, but once they're inside, that's when I have a problem with them. Is it usually just the occasional house spider you have to worry about?

Yes, there are some apartments in your price range. If you want to live IN the Central Business District, it will be difficult but doable at the very top end of your range. You might be able to find a 1BR for $900, but certainly a studio would be doable. You do need to confirm that parking is included, since in a lot of downtown high-rise units it may not be.

If you want to live in Uptown or Capitol Hill (just across broadway from downtown), apartment rents are much lower, and still walkable to downtown. You should easily find something in your price range on that side.

Craigslist is always a good resource for these kinds of searches.

Spiders? Because Colorado is very dry, and the temperature drops in the winter, annoying bugs like that don't have much of a chance to grow. I normally don't see any spiders larger than an ant indoors.

I would get mating wolf spiders on the front porch in August. Those things are ugly!

"Honey - get the insecticide, now, please."

Spiders.. EWWW... I can say that there are some here for sure, but I have to agree with BillRadio in that the spiders don't usually get too big. I don't know what kind they are, but I have seen a couple of "jumping" breeds that scared the pants off of me when I went to exterminate them. All in all though, spiders and all other forms of creepy crawlys aren't too big of a concern here. So, if you can handle the occasional daddy long legs and the once every blue moon jumping jack spider, you should be good to go.
