Why We Love Living in Colorado

Colorado is one of the largest of all American states. There are so many reasons why we love living here. From vibrant downtown Denver to the amazing mountains, open spaces and wonderful food to the mild climate, this is one part of the world that continues to amaze and delight us. As residents of Colorado, we’re enjoying a laid back lifestyle if we like or one where skiing and hiking are a short distance away any day.

Denver is one our favorite places in the entire country. With great connections to the airport, it’s easy to get here and travel anywhere we like. We also love the markets that bring us fresh food. One of our favorite things to do is grab a nice meal from the local downtown area. In any given day, there’s dozens of places to pick from including world class ramen, authentic Italian and homegrown cuisine that takes full advantage of the region’s bountiful produce options. We love strolling the streets here as it’s easy to get around without a car. There’s lots of buses you can get on for a day trip.

Another thing we love about living in Colorado is the climate. Much of the state is locate at a high altitude. This means there’s far fewer creepy crawlies everywhere. It also means the mountains are everywhere you go. Whenever we want to head outside to the mountains, it’s only a short distance away. The regional mountains where are lovely and just right for a stroll on a sunny day. A quick hike is a great way to keep in shape and enjoy nature at the same time.

We also appreciate the fact that there are so many wonderful breweries in Colorado. This is a great place to live if you like beer. Over the years, we’ve sampled many types of beer from various micro breweries all over the state. I like being able to try lots of different things when I’m out and about.

This is also a fun place because there are so many great colleges and universities. People come here from other parts of the country to get a basic college degree or more advanced training. This helps give the state a young feel. Many colleges let people take classes there for a small fee. Over the years, we’ve taken several types of classes and learned a lot in the process.
