And if you’re still not convinced, here is an eclectic list of reasons why Denver is such a great place.
The City is a little quirky. Stroll down 16th street mall in Downtown Denver to experience Denver’s creative and quirky personality. 16th Street Mall is always alive with artistic people. From musicians,and sketch artists, to spray paint artists downtown Denver has it all! The city is also home to Casa Bonita. Casa Bonita is a strange but fun restaurant that features everything from cliff divers, an old time portrait studio, a mariachi band, to an amusing arcade. While exploring Denver you will also find a 40 foot tall blue bear that has his nose pressed against the glass of the Colorado Convention Center peering in at everyone inside.
Denver is into fitness! Colorado is the thinnest state in the nation! Colorado is the only state in the United States to have an obesity rate of less then 20%. Denver’s dramatic landscape, and beautiful weather (an average of 300 days of sunshine a year) have played a huge role in the locals active lifestyles and attitudes. From skiing, snow boarding, snow shoeing, hiking, mountain climbing, to simply walking to work Denver residents are always on the move!
Denver is historically rich! The famous unsinkable Molly Brown’s house is located at 1340 Pennsylvania Street, Denver. The home has been converted into a historic museum that regularly hosts exciting educational events and tours. The museum allows its visitors to take a self guided exploration of this amazing home and discover all the history within it.
This city is insurmountable. From fishing at 10,000 feet above sea level in Echo Lake, taking a scenic drive along the highest paved road in the country to Mt. Evans (14,258 ft. above sea level), climbing the tallest sand dune in America at the Great Sand Dunes National Park, to visiting Pike’s Peak that towers at 14,115 feet, Colorado has the highest elevation in the nation.
No matter where you are in the city, you will be treated with breathtakingly beautiful views. Dramatic Rocky Mountain peaks, the fabulous Red Rocks amphitheater, rolling hills, glittering golden sand dunes, sparkling rivers snaking their way through brightly colored flowers, cascading waterfalls, and echoing canyons- In Colorado you will find it all.
Denver is also great because it is incredibly unique. This is a city where April is a perfectly normal month for a blizzard to descend, where the locals sense of direction is: Toward the mountains and Away from the mountains, this is place where you can enjoy majestic mountains and endless prairies, and so much more.
While those may be some of the most off beat reasons to love Denver, there are countless other reasons as well. This city offers affordability, incredible housing, low crime rates, safe neighborhoods, great schools, an endless array family friendly attractions, and entertainment to accommodate every personality type, interest and budget.
