Denver is a wonderful place to live. And the world is starting to notice! Over the last several years Denver and the metro area has seen a massive surge in population. Yes, that means more traffic. But that also means more customers! But those of you who don’t know why Denver is so appealing, let’s go over the top 4 reasons Denver is a great place to live and work!
Close to Boulder
I know, we are a Denver-based magazine but we focus on all resources and Boulder is certainly one of them. Boulder is a quick 30 minutes drive from Denver and the college town is also ranked as the second startup accelerator in the US. It attracts hundreds of new startups and businesses every year. Every place in this city including coffee shops and bars are full of entrepreneurial activities. This culture can be seen in Denver too. It also offers a large amount new grads that can help provide the skilled labor needed to grow your business.
By living in Denver, you get the benefits of a big city (instead of a college town) but access to an entrepreneurial hub!
Reasonable Cost of Living
The cost of living here is very low compared to other cities with similar standards of living. While housing was cheap a few years ago, it is steadily increasing. Still, as compared to other major US cities, Denver and the surrounding suburban areas allow for a much more reasonable rent. You will get the best of everything here, including school, university, parks, restaurants, transportation, etc.
In Denver, you will get 300 days of sunshine. It is crazy to even say that! While you normally think of Florida or California when it comes to a number of sunny days, Colorado and Denver beats them both. This makes it easy to stay fit and stay happy!
There are lots of parks and scenic sites in Denver. The mountains are only a short drive and offer a variety of other outdoor activities. Skiers, hikers or poolside loungers will all have plenty to do.
