For the last couple of years, we’ve seen people from all over the world move to Colorado. Everyone thought that it would be something temporary — one of those things that’s cool for a little bit but eventually, everyone moves to the next cool state. Though we all assumed that would be the case, we haven’t seen a decrease in transplants, and there’s no foreseeable decrease in population for the state of Colorado.
So what is it about this beautiful state that so many people are falling in love with enough to call home? Keep on reading — we’ll give you the scoop.
Big City Feel
Los Angeles and Dallas are known for being some of the bigger cities that you could live in, but they also come with expensive rent prices, endless traffic, and too many people. Denver has the perfect medium between a small town and a city feel. You can find high-end restaurants, name brand stores, quirky bars, and the like all while strolling the streets of downtown — but you’ll get to enjoy it in a fraction of the drive time!
What’s great is that Denver is relatively close to most everywhere in the state. So even if you’re not someone that is eager to live in the city, you can almost always count on being close enough to stop in and visit.
One of the things that Colorado is most known for is the mountains. The views that are captured from mountaintops are worth a million words. Similar to what we mentioned about the city, mountains are almost always close enough for you to go and adventure without having to anticipate a long drive. If you want to get away for a weekend and take a camping trip, it’s totally doable. Maybe a Friday afternoon hike? You can find a trail within an hour of you!
As an outdoors person, Colorado offers a lot of adventure to be had. From the trails that weave through beautiful parts of the area, to the mountain tops that showcase you Colorado mountain ranges in all their glory — it’s really easy to fall in love with the outdoors here.
All Four Seasons
There aren’t very many states that can honestly say they enjoy all four season — but Colorado can! We are one of the few states that do get a touch of each season throughout the year, and it’s magical! Each season not only brings a new light for you to see Colorado in, but they bring tons of fun and exciting activities to enjoy.
For example, winter. The mountain tops are gorgeous at all times of the year, but there’s nothing that screams winter like a snow-capped mountain. With how close the mountains are, it’s not hard to spend a day skiing or snowboarding down and enjoying a local brew at the lodge.
If you’re tired of those hot, muggy summers — Colorado is the place to be. We don’t have those 120 degree days like Arizona, and you don’t have to deal with the constant sticky feeling that the East coast has with humidity. Enjoy warm summer days that are still nice and dry.
The last season that we’ll touch on is autumn. This transition is one of the most beautiful in Colorado. Given that there is still so much beautiful scenery to enjoy, you get to actually see the leaves change colors on the trees. There’s nothing comparable to a trip to Aspen to watch the waves of trees change their color.
We could go on and on for days about how wonderful Colorado is, but it’s something that you should experience yourself.
