Anyone looking to move someplace new should be taking a closer look at Denver. This amazing city doesn’t just have cozy snow cabins to offer, although there are plenty of these to choose from. Whether you’re looking for a restored Victorian, cute bungalow, converted condominium, Denver has the home and lifestyle for you. The city can be the art-lover’s haven, the outdoorsman’s playground, and the social butterfly’s nighttime scene, along with a great place to raise a family. Take a look at some of the highlights of Denver living:

The weather

Surprise—the same state with the snowy mountains also has some amazing weather. Denver actually has more sunny days that San Diego, Miami, and Honolulu with over 300 days of sun a year. And yet, Denver residents have around 35 areas to choose from if they want to ski. Denver is an unusual place in the way that you get to enjoy both snow and sun, often in the same day. With lots of lakes and other different types of landscapes to enjoy, Denver weather has helped make the city an outdoor lover’s paradise.

The recreation

If you love activities outside, skiing is not the only option for Denver residents. Denver boasts more than 15 million acres of national park land. After a short car ride, the Rocky Mountains offer a beautiful setting for camping or hiking. There are plenty of recreational areas closer by as well—Cherry Creek’s reservoir recreation area is a great setting for biking, fishing, boating, bird-watching, jet-skiing, and even skating and sledding during the winter, something to keep in mind if you are thinking about looking at Cherry Creek homes for sale.

Indoor fun

Some prospective residents may worry that Denver doesn’t have anything to offer them because they do not like being outside. However, Denver has many activities and attractions with a roof overhead. As is the case with other large cities, Denver has a lively nightlife scene, with lots of happening restaurants and other venues to choose from. You’ll also see many shopping centers and art festivals to browse. If you’re a sports fan, you can catch a Nuggets game or one of Denver’s other professional sports teams. The median age of American citizens is around 38 years old, but in Denver this number is at 34. With such a lively and growing population, you are bound to find something to enjoy—water parks, museums, the Denver Zoo, performing art venues, and much more.
