5 Things to Know about Denver

It snows 

Snow boots and insulated coats will be your new best friends in Denver. The city averages 57 inches of snow per year with winter temps dropping into the teens. The climate is much different than San Francisco mild winters and dry summers. Denver summers are usually warm and rainy. Severe thunderstorms, tornadoes and hailstorms are likely during these months. But overall, the weather is sunny and pleasant.  

The food is diverse 

There’s nothing like the taste of San Fran’s It’s-It Ice Cream Sandwich or the Mission-style burrito. But as Denver’s people continue to grow in diversity, so does its food. There’s something to satisfy every craving! Local favorites include:

  • French Toast at Steuben’s 
  • Classic pizza at Pizzeria Locale 
  • Cheeseburger and truffle fries at Larkburger 
  • Homemade ice cream at Bonnie Brae 
  • BBQ Biscuit at Denver Biscuit Company 

The views are unreal 

Watching the sunset illuminate the Golden Gate Bridge is a sight you’ll never forget. But the views of Denver are incredible. No matter which direction you turn, there’s an endless range of mountains. Enjoy waking up to majestic views of the Rockies, Mount Evans and more. For an up-close look, take a trip to one of the many parks for a day of hiking, skiing, kayaking and rock climbing. 

Business is booming 

Denver’s economy is vibrant. The job market is increasing faster than San Francisco’s, and many companies are choosing The Mile High City to plant roots. One of the largest industries is tourism. In 2017, tourism brought in $5.6 million and supported jobs for more than 57,000 workers. Other economic drivers are aerospace, healthcare, finance and biotech. With plenty of jobs to choose from, the city is a huge draw for young professionals.
