What do you like about Denver? It's a charming city that is fairly big, but doesn't feel big, and has a terrific downtown with lots of great shops and restaurants. Public transporation is good, and it has a great combination of sports, theater, music, art, and festivals.
What do you dislike about Denver? Traffic is probably the worst thing, particularly around I-25 and I-70. Also, outside of downtown, the city is fairly sprawling and not nearly as attractive. It's rather dry, so it doesn't have the lakes and greenery of the eastern coast. And also, it's surprisingly flat - the mountains, though nice, are an hour away.
What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in? LoDo (lower downtown), the Washington Park neighborhood, City Park, and the 16th Street Mall.
How expensive is it? Fairly, but not nearly so as cities like New York, Boston, or San Francisco.
Is it safe? Like any big cities, there are bad areas, but Denver for the most part is safe.
How is the weather? It varies. The summers are warm, the winters are cool. It gets surprisingly cold at night even in spring and summer, given that it's so high up in the mountains. But as four seasons go, it's pleasant, and the humidity is low, which is nice.
Additional thoughts? It's a great city.

What do you like about Denver? The weather is in general superb. Low humidity in general makes 3 1/2 out of 4 seasons comfortable (sometimes in winter you have to slather on lotion because it gets so dry). Largely Caucasian/Hispanic with a sizable population of Africans, Indian and other cultures make it a great multicultural city without the multicultural hatred you find in so many East Coast cities. Many activities tog et involved in here both indoor and outdoor.

What do you dislike about Denver? There's no ocean here. :) And the winter winds can get incredibly biting at times. Aaaaand the fact that many people seem to be discovering what a gem of a city Denver is, and are moving here, driving up prices, causing housing crowding, and slowly bringing more crime. :(

What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in? 16th Street Mall, LoDo, Wash Park/City Park/Cheesman Park, most areas in Boulder, old town Littleton

How expensive is it? I'd say above average for cities its size; primarily because of its isolation from other large cities and therefore longer distance to transport consumer goods. Plus a well-educated, large technological workforce provides a higher than average salary to spend in nearby businesses.

Is it safe? Very safe in general; there used to be some trouble spots around the metro area (very spread out) that seem to have gotten better in recent years.

How is the weather? Blissfully wonderful. Being far away from oceans and sea level makes for a drier climate; which leads to things being more comfortable overall. Summers peak out at about 95 with possibly a smattering edging that 100 degree mark, winters are typically around 10-30 with a handful of subzero days mixed in. Winters are typically mild with the "serious wet snow" (a few feet) hitting between January-April.

Additional thoughts? Denver rocks. Come and visit, but stop moving here. >:) (laugh)
