Seriously, I'd love back east before I'd live in the Springs. I'd at least try to live up in Monument or somewhere like that and stay the hell out of the Springs proper.
Yeah CC is just a bunch of conservative assholes for sure. Oh wait its a liberal arts college and not consetvative at all. And then theirs Manitou which was once the Wicka capital of the country... yeah there's a mega church, stay south and you won't even see it. And unless you're a loud mouthed asshole its not like they all run around condemning you to hellthere is tons to do within short drives of anywhere in the city. Its an awesome place to raise kids. This Jackstack doesn't know shit.

fwiw the "liberal" in "liberal arts college" has no bearing on the liberal vs conservative dichotomy in politics. There are plenty of politically conservative liberal arts colleges.

Despite what Nivek says, CO Springs is as close to Texas as you can get in CO. He seems a bit salty that he was stuck in that shithole for awhile. I've covered this entire state for years and of all the Front Range spots, the Springs sucks the hardest by a long shot unless you want to include Pueblo in the mix.

In terms of the three major metro areas (Denver, Fort Collins, and the Springs), I'd personally rank them Fort Collins, Denver, Springs with a wide gap between 2 and 3. In terms of access to lifts, Denver beats out the other two easily.

I wasn't even gonna mention that, but yeah. That was an all-time dumbass comment.

I've lived in vail 3 years and lived in various places in Texas most my prior life. There are fucking idiots in all of these places.

I would not live in el paso or Colorado springs unless I had to, life sometimes takes you to places you may not wanna be. I also can't stand ALOT of front range people mainly the boulder/ft collins brobrah types.

If I had to move to EP I would skip ruidosa and head up to Santa fe mtn. For long weekends Taos is pretty sweet as is wolf creek and Durango plus the added bonus of silverton.

Don't get me started on Boulder. There are many things I like about Boulder, but there's no way I could live there. I'd got nuts.

A little update. My wife is looking at attending UC (CU?) in Aurora. Anyone have anything to say about living in Aurora?

Any areas of Aurora that are better than others?

Just bought a house in south aurora/centennial area. Its pretty nice and close to my work in Centennial. Only planning on keeping it for 5 years or so though and then going to move further west denver to be closer to the mountains. We do like it there though, its the suburbs for sure but you get more for your money. I would avoid northern aurora and anywhere near colfax. There are "trendy" neighborhoods in those areas but you are going to pay out of your ass to live there.
