Boulder or Denver?
What's everyone's thoughts on the better place to live in Colorado (for single in 30s)? I'm not one of those Trustafarians which seem to predominate esp. in Boulder.
I work FT, enjoy outdoors and nightlife and a good singles scene. I'm thinking maybe of checking out Lodo, Cherry Creek, Wash Park sections of Denver to live. I get the impression people in Denver are more friendly and outgoing than Boulder. But what are everyone's thoughts? I did not mention Fort Collins and Colorado Springs which I assume may be too remote, sleepy, and small town feel for a big city. Anyway any leads or option on Boulder/Denver much appreicated.

Trustafarians ! So true !
That's funny !

When I lived in Boulder I was married and just out of college. I thought Denver was more fun.
When I later moved to Denver I was single and although it was a <i>few</i>
years ago
-it was great-loved it for nearly 10 years.

Any of the Denver areas mentioned are great for sngles. But all three of those areas are quite expensive. LoDo could be a l ittle lower because of some overbuilding of condos in that areas. You may find the single scene in Boulder more at the college level age. Ft. Collins would be similar age wise. Co Spring has a much different flavor in part because it is the headquarters of over 50 Christian groups.

Denver has a very lively singles' scene. I know many who live in the Highlands neighborhood and said rent is reasonable there.

I am ready to leave Boulder and head to Denver. I am tired of Boulder. Denver is where I am heading.
