By 3 minute read

Breathtaking views, endless options for outdoor fun and recreation, exciting urban metros and sprawling landscapes—there are so many things to love about Colorado, it’s no wonder the Centennial State is sought after by new home buyers of all types. The reasons to make the move to colorful Colorado are as varied as the shades seen throughout the state’s breathtaking scenery—below are our top five reasons for living in Colorado.

 

1. Weather

With 300 days of sunshine annually, low humidity, and a beautiful mix of seasons with temperatures that range between 22 and 89 degrees, it’s hard to choose the best thing about Colorado weather. Even on chilly days, bundling up is a worthy trade-off for enjoying Colorado’s legendary outdoor activities and stunning vistas that are best taken in from the great outdoors.

2. The Great Outdoors and Recreation

Whatever the weather, there’s always something to do outside in Colorado. Embrace the snow at 32 ski resorts, try your hand at dogsleddingskate across a frozen pond, or plan a snowshoeing trip. In warmer weather, enjoy an enormous variety of recreation at Colorado’s four national parks40 state parks, and hundreds of open-space areas for hiking, biking, boating, camping, fishing, hunting, horseback riding, rock climbing, and more. If that isn’t enough to keep you busy, there’s also the Denver Curling Center4 Ninja Warrior Gyms, the Manitou InclineRugbyTown USA, and too many gyms and yoga studios to count.

3. Colorado’s Economic Growth

Colorado’s economic growth has outpaced the nation for some time, with a growing tech scene contributing to the job market in the Denver metro and beyond. For those looking for a convenient commute, the Regional Transportation District (RTD) is working hard to keep up with the demand for public transportation, making more locations accessible for more Coloradoans, expanding and even establishing neighborhoods throughout the Denver metro.
