Moving from Denver, CO to Dallas, TX

Trading Denver for Dallas 

Gazing at snow-capped mountains, snowboarding on the weekends, and unwinding in natural hot springs — wow, Denver has been an amazing place to live. But as you trade your ski boots in for cowboy boots, don’t be sad. As the core of the largest metro in the Southern U.S., Dallas is also an exciting city to call home. Business is booming, people are thriving, and new adventures await! Life is good in the Big D. 

How Many People Live In Dallas? 

Dallas isn’t the most-populated city in Texas, but more people live there than in Denver. Quite a few, in fact. Denver’s estimated population is 705,000 and Dallas’ is 1.3 million. 

What’s The Weather Like Down South?

Denver’s elevation and proximity to mountains produce a cold to warm climate. In Dallas, summers are hot and humid, with temps often reaching triple digits. Winters are mild, and snow is rare. Most winter precipitation is ice or freezing rain, which can impact road conditions. However, like Denver, Dallas is prone to heavy storms, hail and tornadoes during spring and summer.  

Airports: DEN vs. DFW 

Travel a lot for work or vacation? You’re in luck. Dallas is home the fourth busiest airport in the country — the Dallas-Fort Worth International. While Denver’s airport is bigger by land area, it doesn’t service as many flights. Check out these fascinating facts about DFW:

  • Provides more than $37 billion to the economy each year  

Cheer On Your New Teams! 

If you’re a fan of Denver’s sports, it can be hard to cheer for anyone else. But there’s a lot to love about Texas sports. The fans, food and atmosphere make for an incredible experience. Have fun cheering on the Cowboys (NFL), Mavericks (NBA), Rangers (MLB), Stars (NHL) and FC Dallas (MLS)!
