Denver, Austin, or Seattle?
 
I currently live in Dallas. I want to get out. I have narrowed my search for another home down to Seattle, WA, Denver, CO or Austin, TX. If you had to live in one of those three cities, which would you choose and why?

Never been to Denver or Seattle. But I've lived in Austin all my life and wouldn't dream of moving unless it was to Chicago or San Diego. I've been to a few major cities and stayed for a while in some, in my experience, Austin has always felt like a home to me and is probably the most welcoming city for new residents in all of the country.

Those three, along with Vancouver and Taos, comprise my short-list of places to move to haha.

Odds are you aren't going to leave the state, so just settle with Austin. It's supposed to be one of the most awesome, exciting, cultural, artistic cities in the US. You live like, right next door, so take a road trip and check it out yourself.

Denver or Seattle. I've always wanted to live in Seattle for a bit and Denver has good sports and great skiing. Austin seems alright but I couldn't live in the south.

I'm biased because I've lived in Washington all my life, but Seattle is a great place. I'm going to college in Seattle now and loving it.

Some great ski areas within two hours of Seattle: Baker, Snoqualmie, Steven's Pass, etc. Cost of living is probably a lot higher than Denver though. Denver is probably the only city i'd consider moving away from Atlanta to.

You can start by crossing Austin off your list. Fuck Texas.

I moved to Austin about 3 months ago, and all i can say is, this city fucking rocks. Your obviously a music fan. Austin is "live music capital of the world"...just saying. No matter what you are into, there is something for you here. The only bad thing i can think of is the traffic. You do get used to though.

If you're considering Denver and Seattle purely for the weed prospect, I would put a little more thought into it. As it stands, Seattle recreational use law mandates a 25% MANDATORY tax on all rec weed sold, for which, a store won't even open up for another 6-12 months, as recreational users can't use medical dispensaries for their shit, because the 2 are separated. That'll put the price of grams up somewhere around $18. Not only that, DUI laws are going into place in which if you've smoked within the last 1-2 days, you will fail the saliva tests and be charged with a DUI-D. I believe Denver has like an 18% tax too.

I would go with Seattle, even though I don't partake in the weed. It's a city with a relatively low population, compared to other major cities. You'll have to be willing to deal with rain a good deal, but I actually enjoy rainy days. Denver is a great place as well. My family lives in that area and there is a ton of stuff to do in the surrounding area. Burning hot deserts and great skiing in Denver. Go where your heart desires though.
