You're going to want to look at the list again..

Just saying.

07-06-2013 11:53 PM

HAHAHA.... I stand corrected Oakland is #31 just ahead of that other ****hole Baltimore......

I think they need to start looking at smaller towns.

Unemployment in Oakland is 9.5%

Err...it's #31 actually. Though honestly, more than half the cities on that list are complete ****holes.

Most of the cities on that list, I'm not even interested in visiting, let along living in. I'm good where I'm at!

Ill take a smaller town/city over the big ones ranked high on that list. SF? Really? Evidently they didnt include the filth that is lower haight mission district hunters point the tenderloin etc etc.

Way too many hipsters populating that city.

Ill take Carmel/Monterey Peninsula over any city on that list. Newport/HB a close 2nd for me.

The list is a bunch of BS, Hawaii only has 1 city listed. How cities like Oakland, Baltimore and Washington DC made the list is a farce.

Okay so it's not my Canadian ignorance that was thinking this. As a tourist to every one of these places I can tell you that most of them I wouldn't even consider going to for anything (ie Oakland, Cleveland). But this list is meant for residents not tourists.

A slide show? Really?

razorwire77 07-07-2013 10:08 AM

Lolerz at Oakland, Baltimore, and Philly being on the list.

at least the redirect to the new info is instant and you don't have to reload an entire page every single time. they design these sites like this intentionally, spreading the information/list across multiple pages, because more pages = more advertising = more money

anyway, denver is a pretty legit place to live. we get tons of sunshine with beautiful weather year round. the altitude takes some getting used to for outsiders, and the dry heat makes it really dry around here, but it's much much better than humidity. the social/cultural vibe here is very relaxed with a western feel to it, tons of great beer everywhere and the weed thing is pretty ridiculous compared to the rest of the country.

the only real downsides to denver are traffic (which doesn't compare to southern california or anything), and coincidentally the city is full of TERRIBLE DRIVERS, probably in part due to it's transient nature.

edit: still going through the list, but right off the bat i like how the go L.A. to anchorage haha

But I guess when they talk about unemployment, job opportunities, etc., this list is meant for residents not tourists.

Residents in Oakland have to deal with high unemployment, highest murder rate, crappy roads etc etc. international blvd is probably the worst road in America outside of Camden. There's no reason why Oakland should be on that list.

Doesn't appear this list has anything to do with economics, education, infrastructure etc. Appears to be more recreational, night life, cultural, etc.

I'd agree with traffic. I'd also add iffy air quality from time to time. Smoke, smog and dust seems to hang out right above downtown.

And Colorado Springs has worse drivers then Denver does. 400,000 people who all believe they have the right of way.

my sister lives in the springs and says it's easy to drive north-south down there, but going east-west city wide is a huge pain. throw a bunch of terrible drivers as bad as or worse than denver's, and yeah, sounds like a total nightmare!

agreed on the air quality thing too. unfortunately, the summer wild fires tend to be very noticeable across the front range.

razorwire77 07-07-2013 10:34 AM

Not a huge fan, but where is SLC?

You're telling me Reno, Cleveland and San Jose are better lifestyle cities? Might as well have thrown Newark on the list.

Hell, I'd pick Albuquerque over at least 10 of the cities listed.

They are constantly working on Academy in Springs or I-25. Traffic stops for no reason or because of accidents going the other direction. Colo Springs is an odd place. When I worked downtown on sundays the place was a ghost town. Nobody was around. Huge homeless population too.

You can't read well. Oakland is at #31


They really do love their Northwest cities, with Seattle, Portland and SF all making the top 5.

SLC would be on there if it were economic. This is more about night life (there is very little in SLC) and cultural (SLC is trying).

Do not tell me that Oscars and the Downwind Zepher have closed their doors. I was lucky enough to travel to SLC when I lived in Denver and let me tell you the Jack Mormons and clubs go together very well ^5

This is a crazy list.
