Moving from Baltimore Highlands, MD to Denver, CO

Mountain views are calling

Are the mountain views of Denver, Colorado, on your horizon? Making the trek of almost 1,700 miles from Baltimore Highlands, Maryland, is no small move, but there are many things to be excited about when moving to a higher elevation in “The Mile High City.” That’s right — Denver is located one mile (5,280 feet) above sea level, while Baltimore Highlands is only 33 feet above it. Talk about a change in altitude!

Plan for milder average temperatures

While the weather in Baltimore Highlands experiences both extremes with hot, humid summers and cold, snowy winters, you can expect milder overall temperatures in Denver. The city averages 31 degrees for the winter and 71 degrees for the summer. But don’t worry; you’ll still enjoy all four Colorado seasons just like you did in Maryland. 

The cost of living in Denver

In recent years, housing costs in Colorado’s capital city have been high due to increased demand and more people relocating. Luckily, the average salary in Denver is higher than the national average, and the unemployment rates are lower than national levels. Careers in finance, health care, hospitality, research and telecommunications are growing in the city.

Explore what Colorado has to offer

While Denver has plenty of things to do in the city with dozens of museums, art galleries and athletic facilities, its location at the base of the Rocky Mountains also makes it great for people who love year-round outdoor activities. Residents and visitors have access to hiking and national parks and snowboarding and skiing within an hour’s drive during cold weather months. Denver’s location is less than an hour from Boulder and about an hour and a half away from Colorado Springs for more places to enjoy.
