Moving to Denver, CO?

Denver has been a popular destination since the days of the gold rush. While you may not find gold in Denver these days, you will find a strong economy and great quality of life. Denver is the perfect blend of outdoor adventure and urban living. You’re going to love moving to Denver! Let's explore some factors that make Denver a great hometown, along with some tips for moving to Denver.

Why move to Denver?

Economy

Not only is Denver a beautiful city - with snowcapped mountains serving as a perfect backdrop - it's also a transportation and communication hub. Because of Denver's central location it has one of the nation's strongest metropolitan economies. If you're moving to Denver, you'll also be pleased to know that over the past few years it has had higher than average economic growth while unemployment has been below the national average.

Weather

When you think of moving to Denver, you might expect it to be perpetually cold. But the city is located at the foot of the Rockies - not in the Rockies - so it actually has a rather mild climate. Summer highs average in the upper 80's, while winter highs average in the 40's and lows average in the teens. With weather like this, outdoor activities in Denver are a must! The city averages over 300 days of sunshine a year!  So, visit one of Denver's nearly 200 parks and 30 recreation centers or take a trip to the Rocky Mountains for the ultimate outdoor adventure.

Things to Do

If the thought of outdoor adventure doesn't sound appealing, Denver has numerous art galleries and museums to stroll through. It's also a great sports city and one of the few cities that has all four major sports teams - NBA, MLB, NHL and NFL franchises. If night life or old town charm is your thing, the trendy LoDo District (Lower Denver) is the place to be. For something different, Blackhawk and Central City (about 30 miles away) have gambling. There are many concert venues around town for music lovers. Don't miss the Red Rocks Ampitheater just 20 minutes away - it features concerts, movies, and even church services!

Education

The Denver Public School District educates more than 73,000 students in 73 elementary schools, 14 K-8 schools, 17 middle schools, 14 high schools, and 19 charter schools. There are many opportunities for higher education in the Denver area, including the University of Denver, Regis University, Colorado Technical University, and Denver Seminary. If you want to continue your education after moving to Denver, you have plenty of options.

Altitude Adjustments

Because of Denver's altitude (one mile above sea level!), you'll have a few adjustments to make.  If you bake, you'll have to follow the high altitude directions on recipes, which often includes increasing oven temperature 15 to 25 degrees, decreasing baking time by 5 minutes, increasing liquid by a tablespoon or two, and adding additional flour. For more information on baking at high altitude, check out the tips from King Arthur Flour. The altitude may also take some adjusting when it comes to working out. You may feel out of breathe for a while after moving to Denver, but over time, the higher altitude will result in increased performance.
