Yes, another flat lander moving to Denver - I swear I'm not an idiot and will contribute to society.... My wife and I (early 30s) are moving from Northern Va. to Denver early next year. We are going to rent for a bit close in, probably in the Highlands or Sunnyside. We plan on eventually settling west in a SFH. Right now we have a few neighborhoods in mind and will be scouting on foot in a few weeks. Specifically, we are looking at Golden, West Arvada and Applewood. Here's what we are looking for. I'd sincerely appreciate any direction or thoughts neighborhoods from the perspective of an ADVRider. - Quick access to unpaved roads into the mountains - the closer the better - Older neighborhood with larger lots and shade / trees (50's Ranches are fine, cookie cutter mcmansions no) - Near light rail - Some type of walkable city center - Not Boulder Prices I'm bringing my XR, an old Land Cruiser and look forward to joining the riding community .
