One of the most overrated cities in this country. Home of the Columbine shootings, John Ramsey killing, multiple church shootings, Ludlow massacre, etc. due to all the sickos that live in Colorado. The suicide rate is twice as high as the national average for a reason. Denver itself only boasts a population of 500,000, while the suburbs have more than 2,000,000. Most of the suburbs are filled with white, countrywood morons who don't know the definition of passing in the left lane. The people are extremely clicky and act like they are better than you. Don't tell anyone that you are from another state, or else feel resented. The city itself is completely overpriced, with bums begging for change on every corner. Downtown itself is nice, when compared to shitholes like Kansas City or Detroit, but otherwise it's full of snobs and assholes. The women are ugly as hell and think they are god's gift on earth. The city is completely dead every night, except when the Broncos win a game or the Rockies make the playoffs. Lodo is another gentrified neighborhood filled with yuppies and guppies needing a sense of direction. The rest of the city is full of people working for 8 dollars an hour while living with 5 roommates and hitting the bong every night.The mountain cities (Aspen, Vail, Breckenridge, etc.) is the real Colorado. Otherwise, have fun in Denver, where the cowtown mentality still exists. The kids in Denver are usually trying to act hard after moving from a bigger shithole state like Nebraska or Kansas. To them, cowtown Denver, is cosmopolitan. But if you put one of the undercover hill billy kids in a real city like Los Angeles, New York, Dallas, Houston, Las Vegas, Philly, etc. they'll get chewed up and spit out. Denver is for those who want to pretend they are in a big city but can't handle a real city with diversity, culture, momentum, parties, progress, etc.
I was driving in Denver last week, and everyone was driving 10 miles below the speed limit, staring at me, as I passed their buckets on the right.
Denver! The biggest cowtown in this country! Where everyone had a chip on their shoulder.
