What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?
What activities, clubs and organizations would you recommend to newcomers to help them meet others?
Whatever Parks and Rec district you live in, which can hook you up with many other related interest groups.
In terms of religious, racial, economic and cultural diversity, are the people of this city or town diverse? Are they accepting of differences? Describe.
Certainly not as diverse as port cities like Los Angeles or New York, but differences are generally accepted if you as an immigrant provide a decent effort and means to co-exist. Beyond american influences (and those aren't just necessarily caucasian, but afro-american, chinese-american, japanese-american, etc.), cultural population is higher next in peoples of Mexican origin and culture due to the proximity to Mexico. A large portion of the city is dedicated to businesses supporting this culture.
What are the main industries in this city? What types of career opportunities commonly exist? How do most people find new jobs?
Used to be telecom, but there are many sole-proprietor opportunities out there for those who provide the stamina to hunt them down. Many of our friends are self-employed, perfectly stable in their various crafts, and have been for years.
In general, what are peoples' priorities in this city? For example, do lives revolve around work, family, socializing, sports, etc.?
Being a die-hard Colorado native, family and socializing (which includes sports) are paramount to work - work is just a means to support the latter.
If a friend of yours was thinking of moving to this city or town from far away, what other advice would you give them.
Be prepared to accept and embrace adventure - the great outdoors is what Colorado is all about, be it snow skiing, mountain biking, rafting, exploring our fourteeners, fishing in mountain streams and lakes, camping, etc., all within an hour's drive of downtown Denver. Coloradoans live a simpler, less
hustle and bustle life, allowing time to focus on what's important - quality
of life for our families and friends alike.
