I haven't spent any time in Arvada in the last 8 years. Is it as bad as I remember it being?

Strip mall, after strip mall, after strip mall... ugly.

Ha, yes, Aurora is in fact pretty meh, but it's cheap.

The general rule of thumb is to stay west of I25 with the exception of Cap Hill and Cherry Creek areas.

There is a section of arvada like that still, but old town arvada is like any other old town area. Lots of super cool places to eat, tons of bars, a handful of really good breweries, and 2 super good ice cream shops.

I want to thank all of you Denver/Rockies folks for a good time.

Estes Park - Check (Amazing) 3 days
Boulder - Check (was alright, a bit uptight) 3 hrs
Red Rock - Check (There was a concert that night, wasn't able to go into amphitheater
since 3hrs before it they close it off. Bummer. Also amazing) 3hrs
Denver Zoo - check (kids)

My want to do but not enough time/was too far, Glenwood Caverns (Glenwood Springs) and the Alpine Coaster.

You all are blessed.

Kipling is the best kept secret in the southwest suburbs I think.

I've got a ton of friends moving to golden lately. They're loving it there. But they are more homebuyers than renters.

If I was a renter I'd get close to the city or on the light rail vs the suburbs. I'm assuming if you're renting that you're younger, and all the younger people live as close to the city as they can (typically).

If you're just out of college you're going to not be very satisfied living 30 minutes outside of downtown. Most of the suburbs in Denver are family.

We used to call it Kripling.
