Denver: shitty food, crappy shopping, 3rd tier cultural attractions, thousands of square miles of fugly tract housing, but hey! it has mountains!
Just so it's clear this isn't just my coastal bias talking: Chicago is a great city, even though it is in the midwest and is millions of miles from great skiing.
wow. were you beaten up in denver or something?
cant speak to the food, as i eat kosher, so i dont know about the options on that. as far as shopping goes, maybe not bargain shopping, but there is very good retail shopping there imo.
there are enough great attractions as far as im concerned, though maybe you mean things like museums and fancy stuff. i have no idea about that, but for family fun when i go in the summer we are never at a loss for what to do. but the mountains alone are an attraction, and they start about 30 minutes away, and the mountains and the activity options of fun there blow almost any other cities attractions out of the water.
as to the tract housing, you must be hanging in different hoods than i visit, because there are miles of beautiful homes in many areas in denver.
and yes, chicago is a great city. i have tons of family there, and would heavily consider living there as well.
oh, whats your deal with indy lol?
denver - srs bsns.
