Denver is a great place to live with many things to do downtown, in each small neighborhood, and the surrounding areas. The mountains are close enough for half day, full day, or weekend trips for hiking, skiing, whitewater rafting, climbing, and more. The public transportation system is fantastic, with lightrail and bus lines that go all over the city and to other regions as well. Bike paths are also abundant, which is wonderful because traffic can be pretty bad. Rush hour lasts a lot longer than an hour, but using the public transportation system and biking are two great options in this area. Cost of living is pretty steep, but salaries are also larger here than in other areas, so it balances out all right. There are tons of places to shop, dine, and explore!
Review Denver
Denver is a beautiful, vibrant city that anyone will love. Job opportunities are on the rise and pay well in a large variety of industries. The options for families and singles alike leave many options to keep even the pickiest person happy. There are many outdoor activities that include hiking, biking and wild life watching. Nighlife in Denver and the surrounding areas is full of life. People are able to choose from clubs, bars, and restaurants with great views and top chefs! The cost of living in this beautiful city can be expensive when living in the heart of Denver but overall, the list of benefits make the expense well worth it. Denver is one of the fastest growing cities today and with good reason.
I was born and raised in Denver. I have traveled to most of the United States and to several other countries, yet I have stayed in Denver. I like this city so much that I decided to stay. There's something for everyone-outdoor sports/activities a plenty, art walks, festivals, music shows (good music scene), performing arts, great restaurants, lots of parks, amusement parks, museums, and many groups you can join that have weekly activities.
I've also heard that people in Denver are really nice!
