My least favorite thing to do is move. So guess what? Were moving to a new state.

Hiya, DJ. CaveGirl and WizardPhool have already handled the welcomes, so I'll just echo their sentiments if you end up in our area.

I'm more familar with the suburbs to the northwest of Denver. My family and I live in Westminster, about halfway between Denver and Boulder. As you're looking up information about he Denver area, you'll probably want to know some of the place names. Here are the names of the communities I can think of in the general Denver metro area (in no particular order):

Aurora - Arvada - Broomfield - Thornton - Northglenn - Commerce City - Wheat Ridge - Lakewood - Littleton - Golden - Parker - Lone Tree - Englewood - Glendale - Federal Heights

My daughters (9 and 6) attend school in the Adams 12 Five-star school district. (The name signifies the 12 schools that make up the district and the 5 communities that lie in Adams County) I've heard that the Boulder Valley School District is very good, but it's pretty expensive to live in Boulder County. I can't offer much insight into the other districts around, but I know some people who work in the education system and could ask their opinions.

You may find the job market tight, depending on when you would be looking. High-tech is in an overall slump, and the Denver area is no exception. However, there are jobs available if you know where to look. If your move becomes a reality, feel free to post some inquiries about specific types of jobs. We do have law firms here, so you may be able to find a position similar to what you've been doing.

I've included a few links I found that you may find useful. Colorado is a beautiful state, and we're very happy living here. I hope you find this information valuable, and I wish you luck as you decide what to do.
