Default Looking for comments about living around the Denver area

I'm currently in Houston, Tx. However have lived up in Seattle, Pennsylvania, and Memphis, TN.....and I'd just like to get out of Houston. The Denver area keeps popping up as a place that I'd probably like.

I'm just curious about any comments people have that live in the area, (ft collins & colo. springs, etc) and how they like the area, don't like it, things they wish they'd know before they moved, taxes, cost of living, politics, etc, etc.

I enjoy outdoor stuff, and houston is a little lacking for that, especially mtn biking. That's just one of the things that's prompting me to do some snooping.

Other thing too would be a job. I'm a mech. engineer currently working in the natural gas pipeline transmission industry. I'm pretty sure there's some stuff in the area, but haven't thoroughly researched things yet. Are there any particular industries that are really strong/prominent in the area?

Any and all comments are welcome.

Thanks
Josh

I'm not a true texan. I've only been here about 4-1/2 years.

That's good to know.

What about the area? In general is it a good area to live?

I like Denver, it actually is quite cosmopolitan, considering it's in the middle of bum-**** nowhere. Good music, good food, good art, good record stores. And, the revitalized downtown is pretty damn sweet.

THey have done a lot with Denver in the past 5 years making it very Metropolitan and have made the LoDo District very fun, and gave it some rebirth in the dowtown area, that and it is close to the mountains and such makes it a desireable place to live....you'll like I would think

Except that Stapleton is in the middle of nowhere and it's not really a loft unless it's downtown.

I mean really, what the hell is a "Soft" Loft?
