I would say Denver is better to live but don’t go to Boulder unless you want to live in a college town and Colorado Springs doesn’t have much to do like it has a lot but not as much as Denver does since Denver is bigger. But I would say live in Northglenn, it’s a suburb of Denver and it’s pretty great here even for kids

I would say that all of them are nice places to live. I would prefer Denver, because it has a lot of things to do. Denver is the capital of Colorado, which is a large hub for travel and business, Boulder is a college town, and Colorado Springs is home to nearby Pikes Peak and the U.S. Air Force Academy.

Denver is a "big city" and has all the good and bad that comes with being a large American city, there are multiple suburban towns around Denver you could consider as well.
Boulder is the most politically liberal place in CO, it's a college town, and will have the highest cost of living of the three. If you like Boulder, consider Fort Collins, also a college town and slightly more affordable.
Colorado Springs is a "military" town. The US Air Force academy is there as is Fort Carson (large Army base) and Cheyenne Mountain (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cheyenne_Mountain_Co... During the Cold War, Colorado Springs would have been among the top 10 targets for Soviet WMD. Colorado Springs is the most affordable place and most politically conservative of your three target communities, i.e. the polar opposite of Boulder.Source(s): Colorado native, grew up in FoCo.

Any of the three are good and they are all close together. I prefer Denver because I like being closer to a major airport

Boulder is the best of the 3, but it's a rather small town compared to Denver.
Colorado Springs just sucks.

Denver is the main city that will offer the most in life. Boulder is a college town and Colorado Springs is an Air Force town.
