Denver

What Makes Denver a great place to live?

Denver is experiencing a huge influx of new residents. One major reason is the outdoors. A surplus of outdoor recreational activities in and around Denver makes the city a haven for those seeking an active lifestyle. You can easily access gorgeous hiking locations like Lookout Mountain, Eldorado Canyon State Park, and Flatirons for both casual and challenging day trip treks. Besides a plethora of unbeatable hiking locations, the Denver area also allows its residents to indulge in activities as diverse as white-water rafting, zip-lining, and cycling. The city includes a beautiful 40-mile paved bike path that begins downtown. Further, there are hot springs and a 20-acre plot of botanical gardens ready for strolling. And, of course, there is skiing, skiing, and more skiing! Echo Mountain, Loveland, Arapahoe, Eldorad, and Winter Park are all under a one-and-a-half-hour drive from Denver.

Colorado has the lowest obesity numbers out of any U.S. state, and its landscape is partly responsible for this. How can residents avoid exercise while being surrounded by an almost endless amount of outdoor activities to indulge in? Another reason why Denver residents find themselves in great shape is the city’s altitude (it’s one mile above sea level). This mile-high environment contributes to cardiovascular health over the long term.
