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!

I've lived in Denver my whole life -- but having vacationed elsewhere, from San Diego, California to Atlanta, Georgia, I can confidently say that it is one of the best cities out there. It is at the center of America, a crossroads of cultures. It is a fact that Denver is growing fast, and that is because it is such a great city! With new apartment buildings springing up fast there is plenty of room for new people and new cultures in the city -- but there are also neighborhoods full of Victorian houses dating back a hundred years. The schools offer variety, the nightlife is ca-razy, and you can always look out for the farmers markets or the abundant number of Whole Foods and Vitamin Cottages for healthy eating.
I was born and raised in Colorado and love it here! Recently it has become a attraction for out of state people as well as it has started to grow tremendously there are way more people here and it's not like what it use to be. The cost of living here has increased drastically causing families and individuals to become homeless. The homeless population has increased, I walk through the 16th street mall and find homeless people holding signs on every corner. I wish we could solve this on going issue of homelessness and the gentrification that is happening within this state.
