No arguments with the comments so far. The main trade-off between downtown Denver (central Denver, Highland, Uptown, Capitol Hill etc)
and Golden/Boulder is really going to depend on what kind of person you are. I recommend that you come and spend a little time in each place before you commit. All these communities have their quirks and charms.
I really recommend that you avoid commuting by car for work. It's great living here if you aren't wasting time in your car.
Check out to see what areas are supported by light rail and express bus service.

That doesn't meet the criteria. You can only walk to climbing, trails and the post office.

Boulder no - unless you can afford to live with the 1%.

About 1% of Boulder is in that 1%.
But whereas usually there are 10% of the people claiming to represent "the 99%" and botching about the other half who has jobs and pays taxes not giving up enough...
In Boulder it actually is closer to 99% complaining about it... and some of them are the 1%... It is a very liberal town.
That's something to consider right there.

So I live in Erie, where you are legally allowed to OWN a dog, not just be it's care giver(*1). If I had a dog here, I'd be allowed to call it *MY DOG* from head to tail.

(*1) = Boulder passes resolutions such as that you don't own a dog, you are merely it's provider of care. They've also outlawed the Iraq war, as I understand it... Oh, and competition (such as a foot race) on OSMP (public) property. Afterall, you wouldn't want someone to not win(*2) and feel bad.

(*2) = I don't think they are allowed to say loose.

Hank- welcome to Yard Farming. I hope you are lucky enough to not have true Yard Farmers for neighbors. I'm surrounded by 'em. I also have a Toro 675 GTS self-propelled looking for a home with someone who doesn't mind working on the carburetor once a year or so. Mike Lane
