There are so many reasons while people call Denver home.
Why wouldn’t they? If you don’t know, here’s a rundown of the top 11 things to do in Denver and are the reasons why Denver is the best!
Our cityscape doesn’t just show tall buildings that make up the skyline. The Rocky Mountains are the perfect, beautiful backdrop to Denver and the surrounding areas. Our bright skies and majestic mountains have to be seen. Trek the mountains without a backpack by enjoying the cog railroad or drive one of the highest highways in America- Trail Ridge Road.
We love our parks in Colorado. Over 80% of residents are within walking distance to a park, and with over 300 days of sun, you will find dog walkers, runners, Frisbee throwers and lots more outdoor activities here. Check out Black Canyon, Mesa Verde, and Rocky Mountain National Park.
Colorado is one of the most dog-friendly places to live. We have several dog parks and many dog-friendly businesses. In fact, 2 of Colorado’s big cities, including Denver, made this list of top dog-friendly cities.
With thousands of campsites in Colorado, all featuring a range of amenities from luxurious to rustic, any camper can have the off-the-grid experience they are looking for. Connect with nature through kayaking, fishing, and telling great ghost stories around the campfire.
Our Denver Zoo has won numerous awards including ones for sustainability. We have several earth-conscious folk here, and that can be seen throughout the city in transportation (like the expanding Lightrail and B-Cycle program), water conservation efforts and wind energy growth.
Colorado is known for brews. Maybe that’s because Colorado is known for Coors, who capitalized on the fresh mountain air and water. Microbrews can be found featured in many local bars, and we treat beer tasting like many others do of wines.
You could hike a 14er every week of the year if you’d like. Colorado has 53 peaks that have a 14,000 foot or higher summit. If you want to take it a little slower, choose several other peaks and hikes in Red Rocks/Colorado Springs, Castlewood Canyon, and Boulder (and yes, there’s more).
We are ideal for new business as we sit the same distance from Munich as Tokyo, which makes some people believe we are centrally located in the global market. We have a strong job economy and are still hiring in a variety of industries.
Yea, did you hear the Broncos won Superbowl 50? We also have the Rockies, Avalanche, Rapids, Mammoth and an NBA team. Our collegiate sports are also hot with our big rivalry of CU vs. CSU. If you are a sports fan, there’s a team for everyone.
With over 20 ski resorts, Colorado is a skier and snowboarder’s heaven. Approximately 300 inches of snowfall per year makes Colorado the choice for 20% of all US skiers. Over 42,000 acres of skiable terrain on 2,427 trails is a huge reason many people call Colorado home.
