moving east to west...need advice
So the lady and I currently live in Boston MA. Great town, fun, young, lots of stuff to do but we've been on the east all our lives and we're getting antsy. We both work full time, she in healthcare, myself in engineering/architecture.
We've gotten the ball rolling on possibly cutting town by September 2013. We have a few ideas of where we'd like to be but don't know for sure because we'd ideally like a place that will allow us to work in our chosen careers but also be close to the mountains. We've done some preliminary research but don't know enough about the cities/towns and even the neighborhoods we should be looking at. We're both mid-late twenties and again, would like to be in a place with similar-minded folks.
So far, on the docket:
Any other recommendations? I hear Denver is just like any other city, obviously.
Thanks for your help!
