10 Reasons Why Living In Colorado Is The Absolute Best
When you think of Colorado, what comes to mind? If you said snow, hippies, and the Broncos, you have somewhat of an idea… but there is so much more to love about this diverse and unique state!
1.) "Rocky Mountain High"
Take that as you may, but I get my “high” from the beautiful Rocky Mountains (though if your idea of a high is different, you can purchase it legally from hundreds of licensed dispensaries).
Colorado is home to some of the best slopes in the country! Get your powder at one of the dozens of area ski resorts.
If your drink of choice is a foamy glass of hops, you’re in luck as Colorado is home to over 200 breweries. Cheers!
4.) On the Go!
Coloradoans are constantly on the move and it shows; the obesity rate in Colorado is one of the lowest in the nation!
5.) "Sunny Day, Sweeping the Clouds Away..."
Can you tell me how to get to the Centennial state and its average 300 sunny days per year?
6.) Four Seasons
No, this isn’t a Frankie Vallie reference (see: New Jersey); residents of Colorado get to experience winter, spring, summer, and fall in all of its seasonal glory.
7.) Way Out West (or East)!
Enjoy purple mountain majesties? Head west toward the Rockies! Or are you more of a “rolling hills as far as the eye can see” kinda guy/gal? Colorado’s eastern plains will give you your fill. No need to leave the state; we’ve got it all!
8.) Trout, Pheasants, & Bison; Oh My!
Colorado Parks & Wildlife have big, small, and aquatic game that are sure to tickle your sportsman’s fancy.
Colorado is a melting pot of several different cultures, backgrounds, arts, and much more. Denver alone offers a vast array of unique museums, exhibits, classes, and experiences you won’t find anywhere else.
The greatest thing to ever grace our taste buds actually originated in Denver! Other notable Colorado companies include Celestial Seasonings, Coors, and Quizno’s.
