Considering relocating to Colorado?
Welcome! Every year 24,000 to 30,000 people move to Colorado and we know why! As one of the most beautiful states in the country, Colorado offers residents healthy, cost effective living with pastimes for every lifestyle, and the economy in Denver currently leads the overall improvement rate for the country. Situated at the base of the Rocky Mountains, Denver will lure you in with its beautiful setting and keep you here with its thriving community.
Located at an elevation of 5,280 feet above sea level, you will often hear Denver referred to as the “Mile High City.” Colorado receives approximately 300 days of sunshine every year with beautiful changing season and an all-around mild weather pattern, though at times highly unpredictable. When it snows along the front-range it melts quickly. In the spring temperatures can rise to 80 degrees and rapidly fall to bring show within just two days. The nearby Rocky Mountains offer world-class skiing throughout the winter months and beautiful camping, rock-climbing and hiking during the summer.
As a major metropolis, Denver features more than 200 parks within the city limits and over 20,000 acres of national parks in the nearby mountains. You can take your pick of which beautiful surrounding you prefer to enjoy all of Colorado’s sunny days!
Whether you are a sports fanatic, outdoor adventurer, or appreciator of art and music, Denver thrives with top quality events for people from all walks of life.
