Famed for its high quality of life, it doesn’t usually take much to persuade people this is a good place to live. But for the undecided amongst you, here are five fairly awesome reasons to live in Denver.
Denver has not one but two lacrosse teams? What more could you want out of your weekend but the opportunity to watch some people run around with a ball in a net at the end of a stick. Lacrosse not your thing? Denver has the more mainstream sports covered too. With the Broncos, Avalanche, Rockies and Nuggets all having Denver as their home-base you're covered for football, ice hockey, baseball and basketball.
2. The Great Outdoors
Climbing, cycling, hiking. It’s all there. Once you’ve bought the required equipment you can fill weekends relatively cheaply with a range of outdoor pursuits. Or just go outside. It’s beautiful out there. And Denver averages 300 days of sunshine every year, so you’re pretty much guaranteed good weather for your planned outdoor activities.
The Red Rock Amphitheatre is just 20 minutes from the city. Most American music-lovers will have this geological masterpiece in their bucket-list of venues to visit, hoping to catch a concert there once in their lifetime. For dwellers of Denver apartments this is their regular music venue.
If you can’t muster the energy to explore the outdoors, you can still enjoy it by simply sitting down and gazing at the surrounding beauty. From some residential blocks, like the Monaco Row Apartments you can gaze over Cherry Hills and at the Rock Mountains without ever leaving your couch.
5. No Transportation Needed
If you rent one of the many luxurious Denver apartments in Lower Downtown you can work, rest and play without needing to use transport. This compact area has ample employment opportunities and a buzzing nightlife so everything you need for fun and income is just a short walk away. But if your destination is too far for your little legs to carry you, there’s a city wide bike sharing program available through Denver B Cycle.
There are plenty more reasons to live in Denver, but we are not going to list them all - it would take far too long!
