Completely off topic - Internship Location ??'s

Hey everyone. I'm a college student who is looking for an internship (accounting) for this coming summer. Every company I speek with wants to know my location preference. I think my first choice is the Seattle area because I've always wanted to to head out there and see what its like. My next choices are either Portland, OR, or Denver or Boulder, CO. Anyone who lives in any of these areas and could reply with what these cities are like as far as demographics (lots of young, just out of college people or people who are already well established in their careers/life), entertainment, weather (during the summer specifically) and anything else you think might be pertinent. Any and all replies would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Clydes!

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Portland, OR is very cycle friendly as to infrastructure. Shoot Randya a PM, I believe he's a Portland resident, or at least very near!

I have spent time in all 3 place. Of the 3 I liked Seattle the best. No real reason why.
