Ideally I'd like to stay in the Lehizzle Valley from May to November and live in Phoenix, Austin, or Las Vegas from November to May.

I left Philly (spend almost 15 years) like 4 years ago and moved to my Dream city. NYC! And I am so glad that I did. NYC is such a world class and exciting city. Although I still have connections in Philly, so I go back there alot.

Since you're young you may want to focus more on some of the hipper areas closer to downtown Denver like Highlands or Washington Park. The communities you cite above are really the southern burbs which are mostly families with kids. Nice areas though, but again, you may want something where more younger, single people tend to live.

So you move to Philadelphia because that was your DREAM city? Or you move there because you could not afford to live well in NYC? I have friends that moved to Philadelphia from NYC but they moved because Philly is much affordable for living space and they can afford to live in better areas of the city. But they did not move there cause Philly was their DREAM city, it was more like their last option. Yes I had to give up living space when I moved to NYC. But is all worth it. What an amazing city to experience.

NYC is an amazing place to experience if you're from Iowa or Michigan.

The real New York died a slow death starting about 10 years ago.

HOW ABOUT PEOPLE IN PHILADELPHIA?
People in Philadelphia dream only about Philadelphia because they don't know better
Personally I dream of moving even further out into the country than previous now that I've been in Philly

gotta say its a rough town, but also a very passionate, rough, intellectual (center city), diverse, more accepting than 90% of the country, cool city. new england can learn a thing or two. only NYC/Jersey is as accepting...flame on
