Colorado Lifestyle

Live, Work, Play

Colorado is known for the great outdoors.  I am a Colorado native and have lived on the west coast and in the Midwest.  I’ve visited every region in the United States, and honestly and without a doubt would not want to live anywhere else.  Colorado is picturesque, the weather is amazing and abounds with opportunities.

There are studies that identify 15+ reasons to live in Colorado. A great website, UNCOVER Colorado lays out 20 reasons why people are moving to Colorado.  As a native, here is why I chose to return to Colorado and vow to never move again.

The mountain view from my dining room table is spectacular.  The Colorado Rockies are picturesque and breathtaking year round.  Be sure to visit the mountains during any season, but do not miss it when the Aspens turn a vibrant yellow in early fall.  Be sure to seek out leaf-peeping areas across the Colorado high country.  I would be remiss if I didn’t say Colorado Mountains are  bustling and thriving during the winter months; skiing, snow shoeing, snowmobiling, sledding and ice skating top the list of winter activities.

Spring and summer months abound with hiking, river rafting, fishing, and camping from Colorado’s southern border to just across our northern border in Cheyenne, Wyoming is the World’s Largest Rodeo and Western Celebration, Cheyenne Frontier Days.

Concert venues and outdoor events are alive and well year-round in Colorado.  Visit Red Rocks Amphitheatre during concert season, run the stairs or hike the park. Sports fan?  Colorado is home to championship professional teams: Denver BroncosDenver Nuggets, Colorado Avalanche, and Colorado Rapids.

Colorado has beer!  Breweries are a lifestyle with over 400 craft breweries in Colorado.  Denver hosts the annual Great American Beer Festival each fall.  October 10-12, 2024, mark your calendar and make your reservations.  It sells out every year!

Professional opportunities are in abundance.  Economic opportunities and job opportunities go hand in hand.  Denver is home to research institutions to include University of Colorado-Denver, University of Denver, Lockheed Martin and UCHealth at University of Colorado Anschutz.
