Denver sits at the foot of the beautiful Rockies and has great weather all year. I live in Arvada, which sits on hills north of Denver, and I never grow tired of the mountain and city views, especially at sunset and night. We have lakes and ponds everywhere, rich with waterfowl and eagles, and the people are friendly and open. Music and community events abound, and we have great schools and universities. There are many quaint historical towns nearby so every day trip is a vacation. Denver is growing in diversity and has a lot of heart. I love that there are many nonprofits and outreach organizations who care for the most helpless, and offer many opportunities to volunteer and get free training. This area is a great place to live and go to school!
