boston is super coupley, expensive, and food scene is awful. I’d pick Denver. Had some of the best sushi I’ve ever had there. It’s a good hub to travel around too

Air is definitely fresher in Boston.

Consider Seattle! Love the outdoors here

I moved to Denver, and hate it during the week. You work too late to take advantage of the outdoors and nothing stays open past 8 🙄 And if your clients are east coast, you will have to travel Sunday night (unless they’re cool with you arriving at 2pm). I thought it would be awesome being in an outdoorsy city since that’s where I often traveled before, but I really undervalued how nice it is to get ramen at 10pm, always have a concert to go to, and being able to visit museums on your way to work.

Eh only a few neighborhoods fit that bill. Boston metro has a number of neighboring cities and suburbs that are fantastic and yet still super accessible to downtown more so than NYC.

Those are all super different cities - having come from Boulder (close to Denver) and living in Boston now 😅 What matters most to you? Food (and what kind)? Outdoors? COL? Do you have job flexibility?

Good luck!!

I recently started a job in direct response marketing. The company, culture and investment in team members is incredible. The only issue is…I don’t love direct response.

Mid-senior level.
