What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?
How long have you lived there?
For about two years.
What activities, clubs and organizations would you recommend to newcomers to help them meet others?
Join a community theater, join a gym, go camping. Once you get a job it's really easy to make friends. Same with college and such. Bars and clubs are also a good spot.
In terms of religious, racial, economic and cultural diversity, are the people of this city or town diverse? Are they accepting of differences? Describe.
It's a mostly white area. I'm originally from NYC so comparitively, it's rather lacking in diversity. Certain neighborhoods are almost designated to have minorities in them.
What are the main industries in this city? What types of career opportunities commonly exist? How do most people find new jobs?
Finance, real estate, the arts in the downtown area (interior design, photography, painting...) rather popular.
In general, what are peoples' priorities in this city? For example, do lives revolve around work, family, socializing, sports, etc.?
You'll find their job might occupy their time. Family is very big here as most of Denver can be suburban. Religion is up there. You'll find more Christans live here and go to church on Sundays. Shopping and living it up can be a big thing. Most adult families live well.
If a friend of yours was thinking of moving to this city or town from far away, what other advice would you give them.
If you like camping and hiking and being in the outdoors, if you like skiing, if you like to have a suburban family life right outside a major city.... come on over.
