Difference in climate

Living in Houston, you’re used to the sweltering summer heat and humidity. There, it’s common to see the summer temps average out to the mid-90s, though triple digit days are also a common occurrence. Winters in Houston are mild, with very little to no snow because the temps hardly ever drop below freezing. But in Denver, you’ll enjoy milder summers, but be prepared for colder winters. Another unique facet to the Denver weather is that the city’s elevation and location at the foot of the Rocky Mountains plays a large role in the city’s weather patterns, which can sometimes cause sudden changes to the weather. Denver gets nearly 60 inches of snow a year and an average rainfall total of about 16 inches.

How is the traffic?

Both cities are known to have their fair share of traffic woes, but Denver’s traffic isn’t quite as bad as it is in Houston. According to a traffic study by GPS mapping service TomTom, Denver drivers spend an average of 24 minutes a day in traffic (or 91 hours a year). By comparison, Houston drivers spend about 32 minutes a day (121 hours a year) in traffic. So while traffic will remain an issue, it’ll be a little easier on you in Denver. It may also give you some time to plan out your work day on your way into the office, or plan out dinner on the way home, or give you a chance to catch up on your favorite podcast or audio book!

What are some fun things to do in Denver?

As you leave Houston behind, you might miss things like the downtown aquarium, baseball games at Minute Maid Park or shopping at The Galleria. But don’t worry, because Denver has a lot in store for you! 

Spend the day at the Denver Botanical Gardens or the Denver Art Museum. Take in a concert and enjoy the breathtaking views of Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Take the kids to see the exhibits at the Denver Aquarium or the Denver Zoo. Go hiking at the Rocky Mountain National Park. Or, if you’re into sports, Denver has a pro sports team in each of the four major sports leagues. So, no matter what you’re looking for, Denver has something for everyone to enjoy!
