Golden, Colorado versus Fort Collins, Colorado -
« on: August 04, 2015, 01:17:48 PM »
My DH and I are trying to narrow options for relocating to Denver and surrounds in about five years.  We've visited quite a bit and will visit more and opt for a long term stay before we make a final decision.

We've stayed in Fort Collins and really liked it.  In fact, I can think of little I didn't like about it, except for the fact that it's an hour from the airport and you can't hop on public transport to take in what Denver has to offer.  I like the CSU connection, the amenities, the cohesive community feel, and the weather.

We also want to find out about Golden.  A friend of ours who grew up in suburban Denver has spoken highly of it, so we're going to check it out a bit this fall.  It has the public transport/access to Denver that FC does not, but I'm wondering if there's a strong community feel or if it empties out so much during the day that it feels like a shell of a place.

I've posted several Colorado questions on here but am finding the feedback very helpful in shaping our search and running numbers.  Thanks.
