Edited to add reasons (per Francois' comment): Excellent bike riding - foothills and plains mostly, but I can easily ride to some of the closer big climbs (like Mt. Evans). Great bike infrastructure. Close to Denver, so there's lots to do. Weather is generally amazing all year long (not as cold/snowy as most people think). Easy driving distance to some great vacation spots: (Vail/Breck/Copper, Steamboat, Estes Park, Salida, Aspen/Beaver Creek, Crested Butte, Durango, I could go on and on). Easy flights everywhere with DIA so close. Good jobs abound; great people (best neighbors I've ever had); lots of transplants, so we're not unusual. Relatively low cost of living. Great property values (for now). There's not much to dislike about the South Metro area of Denver. Added bonus: it takes me less than an hour to get to Colorado Springs, but if you're coming from central or north of town, it can take upwards of 1 1/2 hours.

recently moved to OK from Corvallis, OR - that was OK but wouldn't want to be there forever. Way too hippie.

disclaimer: I am a PhD, not a medical doctor. The closest I get to surgery is topology.
I grew up in a little town outside of Portland OR, and spent most of the '80's in Southern California so it's interesting to see the folks that spent time in the same areas.
