Sounds cool. Being at college now, I'm sharing an apartment with a guy from the Dever area who's always telling awesome stories. Makes me want the mountains all that more!

I LOVE CO! I live in the springs. The only place I'd move to is somewhere else in CO. Unless I could live off the grid in Alaska or Maine or something along those lines, but I have a family to take care of so that's not happening. I love Colorado and won't be leaving this state. Though I wish some of the Texans and Californians would quit complaining about they hate it here and just move back to where they came from.

I took a trip from Michigan, through CO, down through AZ and Utah and back up to Michigan. we drove through Denver and up to the divide, and around the backside of the range and south. AWESOME drive, and beautiful area.

I'll probably be living in there by this time next year. Too awesome to pass up. Beautiful landscape. Trails to jeep hike and bike all over the place. Excellent snowboarding in the summer. Not too hot or too cold. All around a win in my book.

Yea. I'm going to kinda wing it. Not setting anything job wise up ahead of time. Good thing my top contending areas have relatively low unemployment rates for this day and age.

OP - I'm originally from Michigan as well. Other than Lakes, CO has everything that MI has but bigger and better. City (Denver) is clean, not too big, very safe. Mountains are a short drive to the front range, or you can continue on and go into multiple different mountain ranges that all have their own uniqueness. Example is that the San Juans in the SW part of the state are way different than mountains over near Vail.

Tons of trails as already mentioned, snowboarding/skiing is 100x better than anything in MI including Boyne, Shanty Creek, Nubs Nob, etc. Nothing against those places, but even the "smaller" resorts here have 1500+ feet of vertical. Plus a lot more snow.

Denver itself is growing every day. I work downtown and it has already grown since I moved here 3 years ago (esp right by Union Station downtown).

Denver metro area is too big for me. I'm thinking Ft. Collins or Colorado Springs. I'm a small town kid from Wisconsin. Been living in Albuquerque the last two years. Seems to be a good size. Maybe a lite big. Wouldn't want a family here tho.

0.02: As from Rockford IL (150K + surroundings) I'd re-choose Fort Collins vs. Colorado Springs.

Where from in Wisconsin? Former cheeseland resident here actually. As a Colorado Springs resident, we still have a town feel, though its turning into a bigger city. Fairly conservative as well, and gun friendly if that is a hobby. Cant say a lot about Ft Collins, though it would be smaller, and a college town. If a gun lover, the area may tend to lean towards Boulder/Denver politically. Some locals can provide more incite.

Nice. AZ and UT are also really pretty. Been through Phoenix, Sedona, Grand Canyon and Flagstaff.

I'm originally from Michigan, southeast side by Toledo, OH. I've driven from Toledo to Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario...so through Flint, Mackinac, Charlevoix, etc. Been from Chicago to Cleveland and down through Columbus and Cincinnati.

Been in the Denver/Boulder area for 8 years now. I much prefer Colorado , but I really miss the water though...jet skiing especially. Coming from the Great Lakes area, Colorado just doesn't have anything to compare to a weekend on the lake in the summer. Although some people try boating on the reservoirs, it's just not worth it by our Great Lakes standards.
