    Mainly when we buy we'll be thinking schools and it doesn't seem too straight forward. The elementary vs middle school vs high school district lines seem all messed up. Or at least hard to decide where to live for making sure we're in a good area for all 3 levels. Then there's the choice schools? Any advice from parents who know the area would be appreciated.

    Most schools in Golden are good, but Pleasant View has a bad reputation. You don't want to live in this area.

    Hikesalot, welcome! I've been living here just about 4 months and it's great. Would love to meet up when you arrive. Never did make a priority of meeting anyone else in this thread, so if anyone is up for grabbing a drink and sharing local tips, would still welcome that!

    OP, you should move back to "NW of xtal mtn." Sunshine is overrated.

    Well, then you definitely shouldn't be moving to Golden (homogeneous culture) or anywhere in Colorado (continental snowpack)

    Hmm. Sounds like the "OP" has a husband who is in favor of her return to the 206...

    Heyo Golden mags! I've finally moved to Golden (Lakota Hills neighborhood) and would definitely be interested in a meetup. I tried to start a PM chain earlier in the year and then spent almost 7 consecutive months traveling for work, so I wasn't able to follow up. My weekend is looking pretty open for drinks/road biking or climbing at Earth Treks.

    Speaking of sucking, I have a hops allergy and can't drink beer. I can drink liquor, cider, wine or anything else that doesn't have hops

    What do you guys think about Bottles and Barrels on either Sat or Sun afternoon?

    I live in Lakewood by Green Mountain. Close enough =)

    This lack of snow sucks. Kids are giving me shit about it daily.

    Been looking at the golden area for a move within the next couple or so years, it just looks like the most absolutely sick town in a perfect location in my opinion. Been comparing it to Boulder, SLC, and the Springs. Think golden wins all of them out though so far. Also seems like a lot of awesome people out there, at least that's the impression from this thread!

    I have been thoroughly enjoying Golden since moving in back in October. Made friends with my next door neighbors, which has opened up a bit of a social scene.

    Wish I had moved to Golden earlier. It's a great town.

    We really need to get a Golden maggot meetup going. I know I dropped the ball on that a couple times. I'm on the road in Europe for the next 10 days, and then may be home for a couple weeks in a row.
