Denver provides a space for individuality and diversity. The people here are kind and open-minded. Various marches for social movements are supported by the city. This city supports culture through 1st Friday's, which gives underprivileged people the opportunity to visit art museums for free on the first Friday of every month. Denver also strives to be environmentally progressive with new bike lanes being made weekly! Living in Denver allows for variety in activity and atmosphere. A short, 45 minute drive and you are surrounded by mountain range. There is everything to love about Denver!

Denver Colorado is a great place to live! It has wonderful activities to do outdoors and beautiful scenery and very nice people for the most part. It's also got many exciting things to do day or night whether you and Joy inside or outside activities. The only thing I would change is that it is becoming such a huge Metropolis now, with so many people moving here, that it is losing some of its smaller Hometown feel that used to be so comforting. But overall, it is a wonderful place to live and raise a family and enjoy many awesome and fantastic activities!
Denver is an amazing place to live. It has beautiful weather-with more sun than San Diego- and it allows residents access to the outdoors as well as fun city life. There is much outdoor recreation nearby like hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, and camping, and there is great food, beer, coffee, and nightlife to experience in the city. The culture encourages kind, genuine, and healthy people who care about community and the overall well-being of both people and the environment. Denver is an outstanding city with much to offer...come check it out!
