Moving from Atlanta, GA, to Denver, CO

Moving west to Denver

Planning to leave the mountain views of Atlanta, Georgia, for some higher altitude views in Denver? While there are smaller mountain ranges in Georgia, you’ll want to be prepared to move to a higher elevation. “The Mile High City” of Denver, Colorado, is located one mile (5,280 feet) above sea level, while Atlanta is about 1,050 feet above it. But a change in altitude isn’t the only difference you’ll notice over 1,400 miles away in your new home city.

Expect more snow

Yearly average temperatures are similar in Atlanta (35 to 89 degrees) and Denver (22 to 89 degrees), but you can plan for significantly more snowfall in Colorado. While Atlanta averages just under three inches of snow per year, Denver’s average annual snowfall is almost 60 inches! 

Denver is a city for foodies

If you enjoyed the food scene in Atlanta, you’ll be thrilled to learn that foodies love Denver for its mix of international and local cuisine. You’ll likely find a place in the city that serves whatever you’re craving. And don’t worry about missing those Georgia peaches because you’ll find the delicious fruit in Colorado, too, grown in Palisade, which is only about 230 miles west of Denver.

Indoor and outdoor activities available in Colorado

Denver is packed with museums, art galleries and athletic facilities for those days you prefer to stay inside. And the city’s location at the base of the Rocky Mountains also makes it a fantastic city for outdoor enthusiasts. Don’t miss hiking in the national parks, snowboarding, and skiing nearby in winter.
