Moving to Colorado

So I am thinking about moving to Colorado, I lived in Gunnison (I hated it, way to small of a town for me personally) for a few months, about three years ago. Since then I graduated college and am bored with North Carolina. So I am wondering what are some good paddling towns/cities to consider moving too, that would also have a good music scene and a pretty active community. I know its a lot to ask for, but if anyone has any suggestions I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks,
-Rob

To narrow it down a bit you have 2 major choices; Live on the front range with all the amenities of big cities and some decent boating or live in the mountains where there is lots of cool towns and short drives to board, boat and bike. Do some searches on here and find plenty of threads on this subject.

Sounds like you belong on the front range...check out Golden (clear creek) and Ft. Collins (cache la poudre). They both have more of a music and social scene than most mountain towns.

Fort Collins has good food, the poudre river is a short drive away, great ski resorts anywhere from 2 to 3 hours away, some decent mountain biking, and old town is always fun. Hope the mountain trolls don't strike me down... damn trolls

I doubt anyone will try to promote our low-key mountain communities more than me...but it really sounds like you would like the front range more.

You didn't mention if you will need a job. That could narrow your choices considerably.
