by Annie 15 Things You Can Only Brag About If You’re From Denver
It’s a fact: When you live in an awesome place, you are allowed bragging rights. That being said, when you meet a Denverite and they begin going on and on about how epic the Mile High City is, you should listen, as only those of us from Denver can brag about these 15 things:
1.) Sure, we had a dud of a season, but don't forget that we are technically still the reigning Super Bowl champions!
Plus, Peyton retired a Bronco, so there is also that.
2.) Not only is our overall sports game strong, so are our...
T-Minus 3 months until Rockies baseball season!
Performing, visual, musical... it's all here in the Mile High City!
4.) ...And cultural scenes.
Denver is a true melting pot of different cultures, beliefs, and backgrounds... isn't it wonderful?!
5.) We don't have to be in an airplane to join the Mile High Club.
*wink* 5280 elevation *wink*
6.) In fact, we have TWO versions of the Mile High Club.
*wink* legal weed *wink*
7.) Winters in Denver are completely bearable.
Not only is it bearable because the city is gorgeous whilst blanketed in snow, but also because it may snow one day, but be sunny and somewhat warm the next.
8.) We are less than one hour away from the mountains...
9.) ...which makes for a pretty incredible backdrop.
If you think this picture looks spectacular, you should see it in person.
10.) The cost of living may be high, but so is the average salary.
In fact, according to the website
, the average Denver salary is $57,380!
11.) We already know who our best friend is.
...and it isn't that thing on the right that wants to kill you in your sleep.
12.) Denver is home to some of the best food...
A burrito smothered in green chile FTW!
13.) ...And beer in the world.
By the way, did you know that the Denver area is home to nearly 100 unique microbreweries? I'll drink to that!
14.) Finally, staying active is easy to do (and highly encouraged)...
Bike paths and sidewalks are EVERYWHERE.
15.) ...And it shows.
