Moving from Baltimore Highlands, MD to Denver, CO
Moving from Baltimore Highlands to Denver
Baltimore Highlands is a census-designated place in Maryland. As of 2010, the population was barely 7,000. Are you ready to move from this small-town area to Denver, Colorado? With a population over 704,000, Denver is continuously growing. As more people relocate to The Mile High City, businesses are blooming, providing high paying jobs. It also offers some of the country’s best ski hills and resorts. If you’re ready to go, keep reading about what to expect in your new city and how U-Pack® can help you get there!
Living 5,280 Feet in the Air
One of the major differences between the two cities is the elevation. Baltimore Highlands is 33 feet above sea level, but Denver is 5,280 feet (or one mile) above. As a new Denverite, you may experience altitude sickness in the first few days. But don’t worry, the body usually acclimates quickly! To get used to the new elevation (and prevent symptoms), drink a lot of water, limit physical exercise, eat foods high in potassium and wear sunscreen.
How does the weather compare?
The climate in both cities is similar. The winters are cold and snowy, and the summers are hot and sunny. As far as precipitation goes, you’ll experience less rain and more snow in Denver. In fact, Denver averages 57 inches of snow per year, while Baltimore only averages 23 inches. But all the snow in and around the city is what makes it a popular winter escape.
What’s there to do in Denver?
Because Baltimore Highlands is less than three miles from Baltimore, you’ve had access to a variety of fun outdoor activities. But Denver is a national destination for some of the hottest outdoor attractions! Take time to get to know your new city and state at these fun places:
- Roxborough State Park. Escape to the Colorado wilderness 40 minutes from downtown Denver. Explore more than 4,000 acres of scenic mountains, meadows and trails.
- Dinosaur Ridge. Discover actual dinosaur bones at this famous natural landmark. See the bones of a Stegosaurus and Apatosaurus and the footprints of a Cretaceous. This is a haven for paleontologists and kids alike!
- Mount Evans. Less than two hours away is Mount Evans — the 12th tallest peak in Colorado. Enjoy spectacular views of the Rocky Mountains and peaks to ski down.
