The beautiful city of Denver is known for its sunshine, ski resorts and scenic views. Denver has become one of the most popular destinations to move to because of its blend of old and new worlds. The city reverently holds on to its farming and mining past while mixing in exciting performing arts, outdoors festivals and intriguing museums.
It’s no wonder that Denver attracts people of all ages, especially young professionals. In fact, Denver’s median age of residents is 34 years old, just slightly under the national average of 38 years old. Denver’s metropolitan area is growing to almost 3 million people.
Denver is known as the “Mile High City” because it sits 5,280 feet (exactly one mile) above sea level. This wonderful city enjoys four distinct seasons, and despite being 12 miles from the Rocky Mountains, the winters are usually mild. In fact Denver experiences nearly 300 sunny days a year, on average, which is more than the “sunshine state’s” southernmost metropolitan city of Miami sees in a year.
Denver is known for its over 100 state parks, but they aren’t the only attraction. Denver has a dozen museums, the Denver Zoo, a Botanical Garden as well as amusement and water parks. Another interesting attraction is the Denver Mint. Denver is one of two cities in the U.S. to mint currency and visitors can take a free tour to watch the money being made. Denver attractions are easily accessible thanks to the light-rail that runs through downtown.
Denver is one of twelve U.S. cities to have all four major league sports teams. For the NFL they have the Denver Broncos, in the NBA they have the Denver Nuggets, the NHL’s Colorado Avalanche call their home in Denver, and of course the MLB has the Colorado Rockies. The four team names help to paint a picture of not only the mountains, but that cowboy and mining past that Denver still embraces.
Living in Denver is truly an experience, and its one of the most “livable” cities in the U.S. The neighborhoods each have a distinct personality and each offer something unique and special. For four months in a row Denver was praised for having the lowest amount of “days on the market” for home sales. Denver is a great place to live and offers a steadily appreciating housing market, with endless panoramic views and sunny skies.
