Denver Colorado Offers Many Benefits by Living in the Mile High City!

For decades now, I have said loud and clear - I could be a walking billboard for the Denver metro area!   I love where I live, and could not imagine living anywhere else!    I was not born here, but moved here when I was five, and lived elsewhere for about 4 years, so I am just about a native after living here for at least 50 years!

 

It is a known fact, living in Denver you will enjoy the outdoor life, either in the City at various attractions/parks or up in the mountains.   We enjoy a bit less than 300 days of sunshine but do enjoy all four seasons.  (sometimes all 4 within a day or two...)    We can have 70-degree weather in December, and a foot of snow in May, you just never know!    We get used to the roller coaster weather, and rather like it!   I like it because we have very low humidity!    There are days in March and April where you can go skiing for a half-day and come back to Denver and go water skiing in the City.   Not always do the major snowfalls hit the City, but stay up in the mountains! 

 

There is always something to do in Denver! 

 

Convention Center Shows:  Home and Gardens shows, Christmas craft shows, Stock Show, car, and RV/boat shows, etc.   Not to mention the many festivals we have!  

 

Concert Venues:   Red Rocks Amphitheater, Pepsi Center, 1st Bank Center and a few smaller venues - Bluebird, Ogden and Fillmore Auditoriums    (There are also several outdoor free concerts in the summer all over the city)

Denver Center for the Performing Arts:   Downtown off 14th Street there are 8 theaters to choose from and have live performances.   

Museums:   There are quite a few - Natural History Museum, Arts Museum, Wings over the Rockies, Mizel Museum, Molly Brown House, Forney Museum of Transportation, Federal Reserve Bank

Sports Events:   We have every national sporting team in Denver!  Denver Broncos, Colorado Avalanche, Denver Nuggets, Colorado Rockies, and Colorado Mammoth.

Water sports:   We have Chatfield Reservoir, Cherry Creek Reservoir to boat and ski and Aurora Reservoir has restrictions on motorized boats, but there is fishing, canoeing, paddle boats and a beach.

Botanical Gardens:   There are two - the main one downtown Denver and one in Chatfield

 

And, who could forget we have a Parade to start off the Stock Show in January every year and there are steers and livestock in our streets downtown!   This one is a must-see!

 

 

Of course many move to Denver for our good weather!   Not many days you cannot get out for a jog, bike ride, walk the dog or just enjoy a park.    We are usually at the top of the list for outdoor activities.   In the summertime, driving by parks, you will find many enjoying picnics, a game of volleyball or riding their bikes.   Our economy is doing very well, unemployment is below the national average, and you can find restaurants of any nationality here!   

 

For the last several years, we have had a serious housing boom, and home values were increasing yearly approximately 10%.   Not only were homes getting offers within hours, and also seeing multiple offers with buyers paying thousands over the appraised value.   We could not list enough houses to supply the demand.   In June 2018, it slowed down to where homes MAY be on the market for a couple of weeks.   January 2020, it started up with spring buying season starting very early, and not enough inventory again.   Our current average price for the Denver metro area was $488,180.

 

You can live in the suburbs and catch the light rail into Denver to attend sporting events, fairs or see a show and have dinner.   There are a few rail lines into different parts of the city that connect with the mainline into Denver.

 

Enjoy this video I did at the Aurora Reservoir in Aurora CO:

Hello Joan - although being a walking billboard may be a bit awkward, you "carry" it well. You do an excellent job promoting Denver in this post as well as on a regular basis.

It does sound like an amazing place and it is so important to love where you live.  I also absolutely love where I live.  The Great Smoky Mountains and lakes are just breathtaking for sure.

That is a big lake area/reservoir to enjoy. Denver has much to attract buyers and those looking for an active outdoor life.

Norma J. Elkins I enjoy the Smoky Mountains last September.   I visited Debbie Reynolds, Nashville, then went to Gatlinburg.  Beautiful, and different from our Rockies.

People in Denver are truly sports crazy. I wonder how the loss of the games are hurting?
