Working in Denver
Denver is a hip and happening city! It is filled with work opportunities and a variety of community events. It's a melting pot of cultures, religions, race, and walks of life. It's a "small town" metropolis, with lots to do. From Lodo to Rino and the Highlands to Stapleton, there are plenty of bars, restaurants, breweries, and dispensaries to choose from! There are also a growing number of protected bike lanes and bike routes throughout the city, making it easy to navigate to and from work and home without having to constantly battle traffic. There are also some great parks to relax, exercise, and gather within the city limits! Colorado has been my home for my entire life and the variety that Denverites have to choose from, makes it an easy place to stay. With quick access to the mountains via i-70, Denver is a great home base for all of your mountain adventures! If you want to live somewhere with fun activities and over 300 days of sunshine, Denver is the place for you!
Beautiful parks, always something to do, wonderful people! Denver is home to an unimaginable amount of breweries and AMAZING people. I've lived in several different states and never have I had an easier time making friends. If you are active and love the outdoors this place is made for you. The seasons are what you imagine in the movies! The sun IS ALWAYS SHINING! HONESTLY BEST PLACE TO LIVE!
Denver is a fantastic city, whether you live there or are visiting. Due to it's surge in popularity since 2014 legalization of recreational Marijuana, we are in the middle of a housing crisis, so finding an affordable place to live is difficult and traffic is often overwhelming. However, it has a plethora of interesting businesses, restaurants, entertainment, and people wherever you go. If you love an entrepreneurial feeling and a modernizing "old west" town, it's a great place!
